Thousands of people have tried my recipe and claim it’s not only the best Loaded Baked Potato Soup they’ve had but the best soup in general. I love anything loaded and potato, so this soup is a hit in my house! This serves about 4-5 people comfortably, but if you’re a big eater like myself (lol), feel free to double the recipe!

Tips to making the perfect Loaded Baked Potato Soup;

  • Follow the recipe closely: This recipe is tried and tested by thousands of people! It’s straight to the point and easy!
  • Get good ingredients: The soup consists mainly of potatoes, cream, butter, bacon, and cheese. Using better-quality ingredients will go a long way. I like to shred my cheese for this recipe and use thick-sliced bacon!
  • Nail your Roux: A roux combines equal parts flour and fat (in this recipe, we will use butter). Roux’s are common in Southern, Cajun, and Soul Food dishes because they help thicken sauces and, sometimes, they add flavor. When making a roux, your fat is added and melted, and then you stir or whisk in flour. For optimal results, your roux should be thick and smooth. If your roux is clumpy, the ratio of ingredients is imbalanced. You can correct this by adding tbsps of chicken broth, one at a time, to thin your roux.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Creamy, bacon, cheddar and sour cream loaded baked potato soup
5 from 9 votes
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 3 lbs potatoes peeled
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar freshly grated
  • 1 lb bacon thick sliced
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup scallions chopped
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt, pepper, adobo to taste


  • Peel 3 lbs of potatoes. Set aside
  • Cook bacon in a large pot, remove, and add Garlic scallions and flour to the same pot making a roux. (A roux is a thick flour base for your soup)
  • Pour in chicken. broth, heavy cream, milk and seasonings. Stir.
  • Toss in potatoes. (Your liquid should cover the potatoes slightly) If needed, add or remove milk at this point
  • Cook on medium heat 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft
  • Stir in cheese and simmer on low heat
  • Serve hot and load it up with sour cream, scallions and bacon!


Every bacon will produce a different amount of fat content. Stir in the flour for the roux slowly! Once you have a creamy roux, stop adding flour. If using turkey bacon, I would suggest adding 2 tbsps of butter to the roux.

    This is hands down probably the yummiest soup I have ever made!!!
    I was afraid using the bacon grease for my roux was going to make the soup greasy, but it just packed in so much more flavor.
    The recipe was easy to follow and I had basically all of the ingredients already on hand.
    I will for sure be making this soup again and again!!!

    I like to know If you bake the potatoes before, or you just pit them in raw.
