Loaded Potato Soup: Snack After Piano Practice

Once in a while, I love looking at the sale rock at the store to see if there's something I can  find  to use at home.  I bought  this Swanson soup  starter cream  for a buck and I finally used it yesterday.   My daughter love potato soup so I figured this would be a great after-school snack for them.  

  • 1 pack Swanson  soup cream
  • 3 strips of bacon
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme (homegrown)
  • 1 tbsp chopped scallion (homegrown)
  • 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled diced (homegrown)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup  shredded 4-cheese
  • 1 medium sized onion, chopped
  • 1 meduim sized carrots, peeled and diced (you can also use celery if you prefer that.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil


  • In a hot pan, brown the bacon.  Remove the bacon and put it in a plate with paper towel.  Remove the excess grease from the pan but  leave about two tbsp.  
  • Add the  potatoes, onions, and carrots and cooked for five minutes.
  • Add the  swanson starter  soup cream, salt, and pepper.  
  • Chopped the bacon and add halp to the mixture.
  • Reduce the heat and cooked it for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are  done.
  • Sprinkle some bacon and scallions on top and enjoy!

My kids  each has a bowl of this after they practice piano
On another note, I am so glad that my son  has finally come to love playing  piano.  I am kind of guilty pushing him to learn how  but I am glad that I did becausae he doesn't gfeel inferior  with  his sister's ability to play.   I wanted him to learn something that he could use his  too much of an energy and focus.   Now, they can both rock it out.  There's no interest in boss gt-10 just yet but  who knows, maybe someday, they will explore more with music.  For now, I am happy that both  of them love to play piano.

Ohh I don't think I put sour cream ever in my potato soup! These looks WAY better than the recipe that I have! It looks outrageously delicious!

Diana Villa said...

That potato soup looks so delicious and very creamy, they way we like it, I can't wait to try your recipe, thanks! :D

I'm saving this recipe to add to my soup arsenal for the fall/winter seasons. We LOVE potato soup but my recipe takes super long.

Dogvills said...

This soup is definitely loaded. With bacon and sour cream, I'm sure it's super tasty.

Alli Smith said...

Potato soup is my favorite fall and winter soup! When I'm in a hurry, I use the steam and mash potatoes to simplify everything. I'll definitely try this soup starter - anything that helps me get dinner on the table more quickly is a good thing.

Masshole Mommy said...

That sounds amazing. I have never had a potato soup before, but we LOVE potatoes in our house so I have to try this!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

Holy moly! I can't wait to give this a try. Of course, bacon. But I've never put sour cream in potato soup before. It makes total sense, though!

Jennifer Van Huss said...

Loaded potatoe soup is my favourite fall soup!! I can't wait to make this!! I have never tried to make it on my own since going gf.

Mistee Dawn said...

Yum! That looks amazing! I love potato soup. Never made it loaded before, will have to make this for my hubby!

Lisa Codina said...

I love potato soup...although I make mine dairy-free. You'd be surprised at how rich and delicious coconut milk is ;-)

Emily Reviews said...

Baked potato soup is my all time favorite soup. Your version looks & sounds amazing.

Gabriel said...

We just had potato soup for dinner tonight. Perfect guy warmer for a clammy, gloomy early fall night.

Liz Mays said...

Mmm what a delicious potato soup recipe. I love that you fry up real bacon for it. That sounds good.

Potato sooooup is so delicious! I notice a few of your ingredients are homegrown. You like gardening? I do too! I just started last year and I'm taking it up a notch every year. I had pretty good crop this year, but I didn't water enough! Next year!

Mrs. Stephens said...

This looks really good. And it's perfect timing because the weather is starting to cool down.

Deal Match Maker said...

I just thought about potato soup yesterday. Love your recipe , very easy to follow and simple ingredients

Christy Garrett said...

This looks delicious. Is the soup mix that you used similar to cream of chicken or mushroom?

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

Wow. Is it coincidence? I just started to make this soup for dinner tonight. My family loves potato soup too.

Dina said...

we love loaded potato soup at my house. I love to make it on top of the stove but I've also made it in the crockpot and it was yummy too.

Ron Leyba said...

This looks delicious. A must try soon!

Lynndee said...

I can't remember the last time I had potato soup. And I don't think it had bacon in it. I must try your recipe.

Jenni E. said...

Potato soup is one of my favorite things ever, especially in the cooler months. I've never tried a loaded version though. This looks SO good!

Shaney Vijendranath said...

This is so my type of food. Definitely a must try for me especially after my c-section. Need loads of comfort food.

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

This looks delicious. I am pretty sure my whole family would love this so I would have to make a huge batch. - Jeanine

This would be perfect for lunch on a cool day. Now that the weather is changing i have been craving more soups. I will have to give this one a try.

Potato soup is one of my all-time favorite soups. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Yona Williams said...

I've made potato soup before, but never the 'loaded' kind - even though that is what I'd prefer. This is a great recipe for the fall.
