Baked Potato Soup is a make ahead, one pot wonder. Make a batch and freeze for when you need a big bowl of soup for lunch!
Now that the weather is cooler, you'll find at least one to two different pots of homemade soup in my refrigerator at all times.
I don't make baked potato soup as often as I should! Being pregnant, I find myself memorizing the soup schedule at Panera... I know that every Monday and Wednesday I can get baked potato soup!
Sad but true.
It dawned on me recently that I've never shared my baked potato soup recipe with my readers. It's something I've been making for years for my family and always a comforting lunch or dinner.
Even better, you can freeze the leftovers for another night. You know, the days when you have no desire to cook and/or don't feel well and just want a warm bowl of baked potato soup.
Yep, you got it stocked away in your freezer. Or at least I do! Which is a good thing since I can only get it twice a week at Panera.
I actually freeze it in individual portions so I can heat it up for lunch on days when all I want is a big bowl of soup for lunch.
I've experimented with many versions of baked potato soup and I found that I like actually baking the potatoes first. It yields a starchier and more flavorful soup.
I also like to add minced onion and celery to the soup to give additional flavors. I mince them so they don't take away from the star of the soup--the potato!
These are extra steps, but I find are well worth it in the end! If you’re looking to make a big pot of soup, this recipe for Baked Potato Soup is the winner!
