Baked Potato Soup

My Mom’s baked potato soup is one of those recipes I remember just always having growing up. She loved to cook it on a cold, rainy day. Some of my favorite memories involve all-day Lord of the Rings marathons, family snuggled up on the couch with a bowl of this baked potato soup.

I don’t want to get too nostalgic and food blogger-esque, but this is the ultimate comfort food. From the smell of the onions and butter, to the “duff man can’t breathe” feeling you’ll have after this super warm, heavy meal hits your stomach… It’s a recipe that you’ll feel good about feeding your family.

Serve it with some fresh french bread, softened butter and that feeling you made something your family is gonna love and remember.

I originally shared this on one of my very first blogs, color army,  back in 2006. Sidenote: I just took a long trip down memory lane on the wayback machine, here is the original baked potato soup recipe I posted (crazy fun to see that!). 

Back to the baked potato soup, it’s delicious, this recipe is the best there ever was, you’ll love it. 

I love y’all.

So glad I tried it! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!!
