Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Right now I have to admit I am a little bit jealous.  Yesterday and last night my parents house in Illinois finally got the first big snowfall of the season.  They built a fire and my mom is spending the day making big batches of soup and baking.  Now, I know I shouldn’t complain when it is 75 and sunny here in LA.   I never have to shovel snow and salt is used for seasoning, not for icy sidewalks!  But, I do sometimes long for those chilly winter days…especially when it involves wrapping up in a fluffy blanket and cupping a warm bowl of soup.

This recipe couldn’t be easier and it can be customized to your personal tastes.  Everything you love to top a baked potato can be added to this simple soup.  It can be whipped up in minutes with only a few ingredients.  The secret?  Half a package of instant roasted garlic flavored mashed potatoes.  Give it a try this weekend….whether or not you have snow!

6 bacon strips, chopped

2 cups fat free milk

2 cups water

1/2 (7.6 ounce) package roasted garlic instant mashed potatoes

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Chives

Sour cream

Cook bacon, drain on a paper towel, set aside.  Reserve 2 tablespoons to sprinkle on top of soup.

Combine milk and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil.  Remove from heat; add potatoes, and stir with a wire whisk until well blended.  Add 3/4 cup cheese, stirring until cheese melts.  Add all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon.   Spoon into serving bowls; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese, 2 tablespoons bacon and freshly ground black pepper.  Top with chopped chives and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
