Loaded Baked Potato Soup Baby

Ontario, Canada

BPS10

First time I ever tried this soup was at a high end restaurant in Toronto and yes, it was a very overpriced appetizer. Though really who doesn’t love a bowl of belly warming, wonderful soup? After thoroughly enjoying this bowl of flavorful yummy, I thought I can make this at home, no problem. This soup has all the flavors of a loaded baked potato which come together beautifully. A satisfyingly creamy and comforting dish. When ready to serve add whatever you love on your baked potato, it’s yours to experiment with! Let’s get to cooking.
