Baked Potato Soup Recipe

We LOVE this recipe for Baked Potato Soup! It tastes just like Disneyland's version!! #soup
Have you ever been to Disneyland’s Carnation Cafe and had their Loaded Baked Potato Soup? If not, it’s one of many MUST-STOP spots at the Happiest Place on Earth, because the food is delicious! Their Baked Potato Soup is beyond amazing and is tied (in my book) with the Broccoli Cheese Soup from Pacific Wharf Cafe at California Adventure (which is served in a warm sourdough bread bowl!)

Well, I made my first attempt to make this delicious soup, and I have to say, it was AMAZING!! I had to give myself a little pat on the back because it was delicious and tasted just like Disneyland’s Baked Potato Soup. It takes a little more time and effort to make than some past soups I’ve posted on here (like Tuesday’s White Chicken Chili or last year’s Cheesy Potato Soup), but it was so worth it!

I loved everything about this soup, but the sour cream, cheese and bacon on top were the best toppings for this Baked Potato Soup. I definitely think you need to try this recipe – ASAP!

Baked Potato Soup Recipe
  • 1 pound bacon chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 4 Russet Potatoes (large) peeled and diced
  • 5 Red Potatoes (medium) diced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3-3.5 cups whipping cream
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • sour cream
  1. In a large pot fry bacon until crispy over medium heat. When done, take the bacon out and let drain on a plate with a paper towel on it.
  2. In the bacon fat, cook carrots for 3-4 minutes. Add potatoes and cook for 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Whisk flour in your pot until the flour is cooked and it has thickened up a little bit (about 5 minutes)
  4. Add chicken broth, half the bacon(the other half will be used for garnish), and salt & pepper.
  5. Bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes are until the potatoes are soft.
  6. Mash any potatoes if needed if you want a more creamier consistency. Add whipping cream and 1 cup of cheese - simmer for 5 minutes. Add more broth if needed for a creamy consistency. Season to taste.
  7. Add more cheese to the top along with sour cream and left over bacon pieces. ENJOY.

    Ooo I love your kind of Colonial-old-time-y font on the photo. Did you have any problems with gumminess? I have had problems I guess with the starch in the potatoes.

    Yum, got this cooking right now. My word of advice would be to chop the potatoes really small, otherwise you’ve got some pieces that cook faster than others.

    I also only used 3 russets, 4 baby reds and had to pour in well over 6 cups of stock! Wow! Those were some thirsty potatoes.

    Hi! I’m a beginner at cooking and wow, your recipe spells delicious! I was just wondering if there is a real difference between using onion powder and real onions? I’d like to stick to your recipe if using powder adds more taste, but the texture of real onions is also a favorite of mine! I’m so conflicted haha!

      LOL. I’m going to be honest – I HATE onions and never use them in my recipes so I resort to onion powder. If you like onions, then I suggest you definitely add real onions. :)

    fantastic publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite
    specialists of this sector do not realize this. You must continue
    your writing. I’m sure, you have a great readers’ base already!
