Baked Potato Soup Recipe

This Baked Potato Soup tastes just like Disneyland's version from Carnation Cafe. It's loaded with flavor and is perfect for soup season.

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 last year’s Cheesy Potato Soup), but it was so worth it!

MY OTHER RECIPES

I can’t wait to make this again. Like I said earlier, it takes a little time and effort but it’s not hard at all. It’s just a matter of following the directions and having all the ingredients on hand. If you love Potato Soups, you will definitely want to try this awesome recipe, but in case you’re looking for simple you should try this Crock Pot Baked Potato soup recipe. 😉

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!

    I was just thinking I wanted to make a potato soup- this is perfect. THANK YOU!! Looks just like I imagined when I was thinking of it.

    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.

      Let me know how it goes if you try it out. We LOVED it. 🙂

    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.

      How did it turn out? I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did!

    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!

      Lil' Luna

      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. 🙂
