How to make Loaded Potato Soup! This recipe has crisp bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and scallions, and is perfect if you want a quick and easy way to make one of the best creamy, comforting soups of winter. I used the Swanson® Cream Starter™ for a creamy base. Get more soup recipes here: http://campbellk.it/1u0gMAO

8oz bacon, sliced
1 large onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
2 pounds russet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 carton (26.1 ounces) Swanson® Cream Starter Traditional
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 scallions, sliced

In a large pot set over medium heat, cook the bacon for 7-8 minutes until crispy. Remove half of the bacon from the pot to a paper towel lined plate, then add the chopped onion along with a pinch of salt. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and fragrant.

Add the potato chunks to the pot and season generously with a big pinch of salt, and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the Swanson Cream Starter and cook the soup for 15-20 minutes with the lid on, stirring every 5 minutes so the bottom of the pan doesn’t burn, until the potatoes are soft. Stir in the cheddar cheese and green onions, then serve immediately. Serve with desired garnishes on top, such as the reserved crumbled bacon, extra cheese, scallions, or sour cream. Enjoy!

This looks good, but it looks like Swanson discontinued the cream starter. What do you think is the best substitute? Thx,

I made this for my boys and just added some cubed ham for some extra meat (lol and more bacon!) OMG they loved it! So so good and easy thank you some much!

Allison Murphy says:

All your recipes are so short, sweet and to the point and I love that!! Lately I've been actually cooking homemade stuff a lot more but a lot of the recipes I use are so long and hard to memorize. But yours are short yet make so much food and delicious! I was wondering if you could make some more fruit dishes? I loved your watermelon videos, and I'd loved to see more slushies of some other fruit concoctions(: God bless<3

kleptic says:

Amazing recipe Joanne! I shall try this as soon as we can clear out my refrigerator of Christmas leftovers. If I see the Swanson cream starter right away, I'll grab it, but I think I'd rather try making it from scratch. 😊
