4.3 stars from 11 ratings of Loaded Potato Soup

When the weather cools down in the Fall and the Winter I love to eat soup! My favorite type that I normally gravitate towards are chowders and thicker soups. There is just something magical about a good cup of soup in the cooler weather with a nice crisp autumn breeze. As you may be aware, I love going to Disneyland! Disneyland has lots of great soups and chowders offered throughout both parks and Downtown Disney. Some fan favorites include Gumbo, Clam Chowder, Broccoli Cheddar, and Loaded Baked Potato Soup! I personally love the broccoli cheddar and Loaded Baked Potato Soup! These are the two I mostly get in the park and of course they come in a delicious bread bowl. If you love the soup offered in the park but are not able to go when you want or don't want to pay the price (it can sometimes be expensive for very little soup) I have tracked down the Loaded Baked Potato Soup recipe used in the park for your cooking pleasure!

All the ingredients needed to make Loaded Baked Potato Soup: carrots, celery, potatoes, heavy cream, onion, flour, bacon, and chicken broth. This does not include garnishes.
  • 1 pound bacon, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup celery, diced
  • 4 large russet potatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Optional Garnishes

•chopped chives

•green onions

•bacon bits

•sour cream

•shredded cheddar cheese

•Monterey jack cheese

•paprika

*NOTE*

Instead of Russet potatoes I used yellow potatoes. I did this because yellow potatoes or yukon potatoes have less starch than russet potatoes when they break down while being digested. This is a personal choice and either work fine in this recipe!

Instructions

  1. In a 6 to 8 quart stockpot over medium heat fry the bacon until crisp.
  2. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish. In the bacon fat cook onions, carrots, and celery until the onions are translucent. Add potatoes, mix, and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the flour and mix constantly over low heat until the flour is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken stock and half of the bacon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Over medium-high heat, bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Stir occasionally. Mash some of the potatoes for a thicker, creamier texture. Add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Adjust the thickness of the soup by adding water or stock (for thiner soup). The soup should have a creamy consistency.
  6. Season to taste and garnish with toppings of choice.

Just A few Tips!

  • Soak the diced potatoes in cold water to prevent them from turning brown. Make sure you drain the water from the potatoes before you add them in the stock pot.

  • Freeze the bacon slightly to make it easier to chop.
  • To mash some of the potatoes use a masher and lightly press down through the soup after the heavy cream is added. You can skip mashing the potatoes if that is what you prefer!
  • For a thicker soup let it simmer longer after adding the heavy cream. About 5 more minutes.
  • You can serve this soup in a bread bowl to make it more authentic to how it is served inside the park!

        I haven't been to Disneyland since I took my kids back in about 1979! I didn't have soup there at that time.

        However, this looks and sounds yummy, except as a vegetarian, I'd have to just garnish with imitation bacon chips when serving.

        I do like soup..thick, hearty soups. I'm going to bookmark this for sure!

        Just looking at the soup picture makes me want to try this. And I'm sure fixing it at home is a lot cheaper than a ticket to Disneyland!

        This is a delicious recipe. Lots of bacon is ideal! Also, optional ingredients chopped chives, green onions and a blend of shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese makes this baked potato soup much tastier! Fresh sourdough bread for dunking is highly recommended. Thanks Lyndsay, I enjoyed this! Vote up!

        Hi Better Yourself!

        Thanks for voting up! Let me know how it turns out without the bacon! This might be a helpful tip. Since you are not using bacon sauté the veggies in some olive oil so they don't stick! Also you can use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock! =)
