Loaded Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup - so full of flavor and so many delicious ingredients. This soup will keep you warm and full any time of year! { lilluna.com }

Soups are an obsession this time of year! I make them so often that you could almost call it a hobby. I think I enjoy them so much because they remind me of weather cooling down and that the holidays are approaching. And I LIVE for the holidays! Definitely my favorite time of year.

It wasn’t too long ago that I spotted a recipe on Pinterest from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe that I knew I had to try. It’s called Loaded Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup. The name alone makes you want to try it, right?! When you know it has broccoli, cheese and potatoes you know it’s going to taste great and let me tell you – IT DID!! It was so hearty and delicious that I think the hubby sneaked a few bowls. I may have too. πŸ˜‰

The soup ends up pretty thick making it almost a chowder, but it can be made more soup-y by adding more broth or milk, which is how we prefer it.Β If you love flavorful soups then you’ll definitely want to try this one. Broccoli and Cheese Soups are always good but with the potatoes and extra bacon, this soup is too good to be true!

    Kimberly @ The Daring Gourmet

    Definitely a winner! Creamy, cheesy broccoli soups have always been a favorite and this one, being so deliciously loaded, is my kinda soup!

    Cathy Trochelman

    Broccoli Cheese Soup is one of our favorites! Thanks for the awesome looking recipe!

    Carrie @Frugal Foodie Mama

    LOVE how hardy this soup is! πŸ™‚ Perfect for fall.

    Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction

    Hearty soups like this are a favorite around here! Perfect comfort food!

    Jaren (Diary of a Recipe Collector)

    I must make this one soon! It looks so delicious!

    Alia

    mmmm- adding this to the menu this week! Trying to pretend its fall weather here in California πŸ˜‰

    Steph @ Steph in Thyme

    Loaded indeed – so chunky and wonderful!

    Jenn W

    I made this tonight for the family & it was just as delicious as it seems! Everyone went back for seconds (& thirds!). Thank you!

    Debbie Blanton

    I love soups and eat them everyday. This looks so delicious, chunky, cheesey and hearty. I can’t wait to make it. Thanks for sharing.

    Tatiana

    Does anyone know how much flour to add? On my end it shows a square box!

      Tanya

      1/3 Cup

      Debi

      Hi Tatiana, the recipe calls for 1/3 cup of flour. Hope that helps.

    Sharron

    Just curious, the recipe sounds good but has anyone actually made it? Living in the Midwest soup is always a great comfort food and keeps the old bones warm!! I have several recipes for Broccoli soup but I like change, is this a keeper?

      Cindy

      I made this on the weekend. Delicious! Instead of onion powder and garlic pepper, I sauteed minced onion and garlic into the butter before adding the flour. I also lightly mashed the veggies and broth with a potato masher before adding the cheese sauce and added some hot chili sauce at the end to give it a bit of a kick. Very simple to make and very tasty. Will definitely make again.

        Frank

        How much garlic??

          Cindy

          Just a clove. πŸ˜€

      amber

      It seems like a great recipe…. I am making it tomorrow so I will have to post how it comes out

      Jenny

      LOL I hate comments in blogs from other bloggers who never tried the recipe, but instead make comments about it like “looks so good, I love broccoli and cheese, winning combo!!!!!” But yes, several commens here are from people who actually made the soup.

        Jennifer

        Same here. I am currently cooking this dish and I turn to the comments for a little help tip and what do I find? Same as you have said.

    cathee hoovler

    Boxed loaded scalloped potatoes can be subbed for the base, cook with chicken broth or water with Better than Bullion chicken. Cook until potatoes are really soft, add your veggies then add more broth if needed to thin, then add canned milk and your cheese, freshly grated parmesan cheese steps it up a notch also, use it as part of the topping with chopped green onions.

    Melissa

    Has anyone figured out the amount of calories in this by chance?
    Thanks ahead of time!

    Diane

    what in Gods name does TB of butter mean , surely not tubs , if so than its not very healthy

      Manda

      Maybe Tablespoon?

        Diane

        then that would be Tbs, not TB that to me stands for tub

          Steve

          Tbl is tablespoons. Sounds like someone needs a hug..

      Deborah

      I would say that would be Tablespoon, the usual abbreviation is large T. for tablespoon and small t. for teaspoon.

      Beth Sherrill

      TB is Tablespoon

        Traci

        TB – tablespoon

    Lana Charron

    Way to much fat content with all that cheese

    Cathy Jarolin

    This has got to be the most Delicious Soup I have seen in a long time! I Pinned it on my pinterest board . I am excited about making it!! My Husband is going to love it! He loves cheese and chunky soup! Thankyou so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!

    Sarah

    Can you substitute another broth beside chicken husband allergic to it. Onion pepper the garlic pepper never heard of are those ingredients a must?

      Anne Gideon

      I have not made it yet but was planning on substituting onion and garlic powder for those as I was confused as well over what they were.

        Anne Gideon

        I would think vegetable broth would work in substitution for the chicken broth.

      Lori Price

      I substituted vegetable stock for chicken broth since it was all I had on had and it is delish!

        Lil' Luna

        Good to know…thanks for sharing!! Glad you liked it! πŸ™‚

      Sheryl

      You could just make it with water, thus creating a vegetable broth by boiling the carrots, and potatoes before adding in the broccoli.

        Lil' Luna

        Thanks for sharing Sheryl. I was going to suggest vegetable broth as well! πŸ™‚

    bernie

    So how many servings does this make??? I cant find that info anywhere. Got 9 coming for book club. 1.5 times? double? someone help me out here.

      Kittykeen98

      Says 8-10

    Anne Gideon

    How many servings is this recipe for? I am feeding a 22 year old, and 19 year old (sons in college) and a hungry husband….if it is for 4 servings I will need to double it at least! Thank you!

    Brenda

    Is it self rising flour or plain?

      Julie

      Plain , you are making a roux . I think you could probably use SR but I never have so can’t say what the outcome would be .

    Nancy Bedard

    Was absolutely delicious!

    Jessica

    Can the soup be made in a crock pot?
    If so what would be the cooking time?

    Goat Lady of the Mountain

    In all my years of cooking, I have never seen TB to be interpreted as Tub. Use some common sense! Butter is high in calories yes but lower in additives than margarine. Weigh your options. The butter & flour make the roux, or base of this soup. It does not work as well with imitation butter or margarine. To try to make this a low calorie comfort food would violate the integrity of its goodness! No, you probably should not eat this everyday. But I made it as the recipe called for above and it is fabulous! Not a drop left. Thank you for sharing an easy recipe for this tasty soup!

    Mary

    Is this recipe freezable?

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sure you could. I haven’t tried freezing it yet. I wouldn’t add the toppings in there, but it should be ok. Let me know how it turns out:)

      Danielle

      We froze it in quart sized bags for quick dinners. It tasted the same. My family loves it

        Lil' Luna

        That’s perfect!! Thank you for sharing and so happy you’re family liked it!!

    Mika

    What is the estimated serving size =

      Lil' Luna

      I would say 4-6 people:) Let me know if you give it a try and what you think! It is so good!

    sheila

    Can you tell how many servings? I have a large family of 9 and always look for serving size. Thank you.

      Lil' Luna

      It probably feeds anywhere from 4-6 people. So, you would want to double it:) Anything left can be stored in the fridge and had for lunch the next day:) Hope you like it!

    Terry Olsen

    Thank-you for sharing!

    Vera Nugent

    Looks great wish I had some right now.

    Jess

    This recipe looks so good and I would very much like to make it. Shuffling our daughter to and from various practices makes mekind of busy. I seen someone asked this but I didnt see a response, Is it possible to make this in a crock pot??

      Lil' Luna

      It is delish!! And, I’m sure it can be done in the crockpot. I haven’t tried it that way, but it seems like anything usually works in there. If you try, I’d love to know how it turns out!

    D. Hayes

    How many servings does this recipe make?

    April

    Looks soo good! Doing this tomorrow for sure.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks:) How did it turn out? It’s one of our favorites!!

    Rachel

    Do you think this could be made in the crockpot? I want to try it tomorrow but my daughter has cheerleading practice so I do crockpot meals on Thursdays.

      Lil' Luna

      Usually, anything works out in the crockpot, so it should:) I can’t say I’ve tried this particular recipe in the crockpot, but if you want to try and let me know…that would be great to pass along.

    lynn

    So I made this, it was very good. However, it separated the milk and cheese and upon asking a friend why she asked what temperature the recipe had called for the milk and cheese to be on. It doesn’t say. And I’ve never made a soup before so kind of disappointed this happened.

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sorry that happened! I usually keep the temp on the lower side, when I’m melting butter and adding milk, no higher than medium. Hopefully, that didn’t discourage you from trying again. I’m glad you liked it, though:)

    Doreen

    I am gonna make this today..
    Thanks

      Lil' Luna

      I hope you love it, like we do!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

    Kelly

    I only made this with items I had on hand (for example, I only had about 2/3 of a bag of shredded colby jack, not a full 2c bag of cheddar), but it still turned out pretty good! I am excited to buy the proper ingredients and make it right, so it will be even better!

      Lil' Luna

      Glad you liked it!:) We love this soup! Thanks for letting me know!!

    Tammy

    Just made this soup today, turned out great. Simple to make and ready on 30 minutes. Loved it!

      Lil' Luna

      I LOVE this soup!! Thank you for giving it a try & letting me know!!

    Kasey

    I’m making this recipe this weekend and it will be my 4th time! I LOVE it! I make it for my family of 3 and freeze half for later. Usually, there are leftovers for my lunch the next day too! My daughter RARELY asks for seconds of anything and this is one that she always wants more of. Since I first made this–this winter– I would have to say this is my favorite meal. Now that I’m pregnant, I’ve been craving it like crazy! Who cares that it’s middle of summer and 90 degrees! lol

      Lil' Luna

      LOL!! I could eat it year long, too! So, glad you all like it!! Thanks for letting me know!

    Dorothy

    This one is going on my list when soup season comes around. Today is July 20 with another heat index of 100 +.
    This potato soup will be a nice change from the “Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana”

      Lil' Luna

      It’s definitely a keeper for cooler temps!! Hope you like it, as much as I do!!

    Kayla

    I made this soup tonight for my husband and myself and it was delicious! It took a little bit of time between the prep, simmering, and roux making, but wasn’t complicated and it was so worth it! We both loved it and will be making it again πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for giving it a try! I’m glad you both liked it!! Thank you for letting me know!

    Carol S

    Hello, I made this soup tonight and it’s delicious. The only thing I would change is to stir hot soup gradually into the cheese sauce stirring constantly because when I added the cheese sauce to the soup (as the directions indicated) the cheese sauce curdled a little. Thank you for a great recipe!

    Kathy

    I love my soups, Thank you for these lovely additions to my collection can’t wait to try them. Going to try the Potatoe,Bacon and Cheese today.

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you!! How’d it turn out? That’s one of my favs!!

    Jen

    I’m making this again tonight! My family of 5 just loves it! I really like that it makes two meals for us! For those that are complaining about making the roux, you can use cornstarch in it’s place. The first time I made it, I only had roughly 30 minutes to get it done, and my roux went all wrong. So I went to my pantry and followed the directions on my cornstarch and it turned out perfect. I also noticed a lot of people asking about serving size….. I have three young children, they all went back for seconds, and a husband who probably ate two serving sizes. I ate about 1 serving size, and we still had enough left over for both my husband and I for lunch the next day. This recipe is really great, and super simple. It really doesn’t take that long. If you’re short on time, buy pre-cut carrots, and make your bacon in the oven (it’s the only way I cook bacon now), while your soup is cooking. You could also cut your broccoli in advance, and you could pre peel and cut your potatoes in the morning, just be sure you submerge them in water and store in the fridge until you are ready to cook them (not recommended for more than 24 hours). This recipe is worth every minute, and every calorie, lol!

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you so much Jen for sharing all of that!! It really is an easy and delicious recipe! I hope that helps anyone needing it! Thanks again!

        Jen

        No problem! I would hate for others to miss out on such a great recipe because they think it will take them a long time to make. It turned out fabulous again tonight! I can’t thank you enough for this recipe, it is so wonderful! The fact that my kids will eat it and ask for more, means everything!!!!

    Miss Mary

    So I’m at work, surfing through Pinterest when I came upon this. Stomach instantly starting growling! How yummy does this look!!! When the weather gets cooler here in a month or so, I will be making this. Thank you for this amazing recipe. πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      LOL!! This is one of our favs! I don’t usually wait until cooler weather!

    Lorie

    Is it just me that hasn’t heard of garlic pepper?

      Lil' Luna

      You’d find it with the spices. We use it a lot! Adds more flavor than just pepper.

    Erika

    I’d like to make this tonight, but only have frozen broccoli on hand. Would you recommend cooking the broccoli first and then adding it, or putting it in frozen and letting the soup cook a little longer? I’m so excited to try this, it looks amazing πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      The broccoli will be going in boiling water, so it’s ok if it’s frozen. We LOVE this soup..hopefully, you will too!

        Erika

        I finally got around to making this last weekend, and OH.MY.GOODNESS. It was one of the most delicious soups I’ve ever made!!! Thank you so much for the recipe πŸ™‚

          Lil' Luna

          So glad to hear that!!! This is one of my favs πŸ™‚ Thank you for letting me know!!

    Nancy

    This soup is delicious! I used fresh onions (1/2 of a large) instead of onion powder, followed the rest of the recipe to a tee and it was great! Love that it is so easy to make also!

      Lil' Luna

      I use the onion powder, because I’m not a fan of onions. If you love onions, I’m sure they make it even better πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!!

    Charmaine

    Can someone tell me if you drain the water out of the veggies or do u leave it in ??

      Lil' Luna

      You do not! You’ll need the the liquid to mix with the other ingredients. Glad you stopped by!

    CM Johns

    I made this soup tonight. It was delicious! Had great flavour! Next time however I will be careful about measuring my broth as my soup was not thick but my husband loved it. He had 2 helpings. I will follow the advice of adding soup to cheese sauce gradually as I found there was a little gritty taste. I think the cheese sauce may have curdled a bit. I will make it again though. I like hearty soups for the Fall.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks for giving it a try and I’m glad your hubby liked it and you! More milk will make it thinner, it just depends on how you guys like it. This is a great, hearty soup for sure!

    Angela

    I tried this recipe tonight and it was so easy. It came out great. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you so much for trying this recipe!! Glad you liked it!!

    SarahM

    I was down to a cup and a half of cheddar cheese and had no money for bacon so my husband used some of the gouda cheese we bought for his homemade Mac and cheese for the rest. It really gave it a smoked flavor. It’s times like this when I love having a chef for a husband!

      Lil' Luna

      That sounds amazing! I’ll need to try that! Thank you for sharing!

    Gn Imgaes

    Made these and they are delicious!

      Lil' Luna

      That makes me so happy to hear that!! Thanks so much for letting me know!

    Ayriana

    This soup sounds delicious. Do you think I could just put everything in the crock pot st once and let it cook for a couple hours?

      Lil' Luna

      Of course!! I haven’t yet, so just make sure the broccoli, carrots, & potatoes get cooked through! Don’t want to bite into a hard potato! Good luck!!!

    Dani

    Curious, has anyone substituted cheddar with Velveeta?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t..anyone??

        Thomas

        Will be making and planned to add some. I’ll report back.

    Cheryl Harlan

    Your loaded broccoli & cheese soup was DELICIOUS. My sister-in-law made it for Thanksgiving dinner. I just got the recipe and I am going to make it for my husband and I. We both love soup.
    Thank you so much.

      Lil' Luna

      It’s one of my favs!!! Thanks so much for letting me know!!

    Japanese dog breeds

    A must make! Thanks for sharing!

    Lizzie @ This Happy Life

    I have made this a few times now and just have to tell you how amazing it is!! Thank you for this recipe!

      Lil' Luna

      Oh, thank you so much for letting me know! I love this soup too!! Glad you like it!

    Christina

    I just made this soup it was perfect for this cold night. I did add a little bit of sour cream to it i definitely recommend this recipe!

      Lil' Luna

      Yum!! It is perfect for a cold night πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing!

    Crystal

    I made this tonight and I am so thrilled. It is AMAZING. I did tweak it a little. I sautΓ©ed onions and minced garlic to add to the broth. I also added a little of my bacon grease to the broth. I am so excited about this recipe! Thank you for sharing:)

      Lil' Luna

      That sounds great!! I’m so glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!

    Txschic

    This was so delicious, glad i doubled the ingredients!

      Lil' Luna

      It’s one of my favs!! Thank you for letting me know!!

    Ronda Combs

    I just tried this soup recipe, and Oh My! It was really easy to make, and sooo delicious, the perfect comfort food ! Gave some to my sister and she just couldn’t stop raving about it. The only thing I changed was I only put 2 cups of cheese in it, instead of 4, like the recipe called for. BUT that’s the beauty of it, you can customize this recipe to suit your own taste. Love love love this!

      Lil' Luna

      That sure is the beauty of it πŸ™‚ I’m so glad it was a hit! Thank you for giving it a try and for letting me know!

    Aleida

    I made this yesterday …I did tweak a bit. It was delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe.

      Lil' Luna

      You are so welcome!! I’m glad you liked it!! Thanks so much for giving it a try!

    Heather

    Made it, the milk didn’t thicken, I would suggest more flour and butter to start.

    But delicious.

      Lil' Luna

      Sorry about that! I’m glad you still liked it πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    Diana Popa

    I found your recipe. It looks delicious. Except I’m in Europe and we don’t have that kind of measurement. And now I’m stuck. How much is a cup? Why cups and not grams, or tablespoons, or something that is not so complicated?

    Kathy Zappa

    This soup is so good!! Didn’t have fresh broccoli so used frozen broccoli florets. Also added a little extra salt. Husband loved it!! Will definitely make again!

      Lil' Luna

      Yay! We sure love this soup, as well πŸ™‚ So, glad you both liked it! Thank you for sharing!

    Jennifer

    Ok, this recipe is next on my list of wants to try but I really want to throw it in the crockpot, has anyone done this and if so does the whole flour/milk situation stay the same or not I don’t know cooking that well . Thanks so much for any help πŸ™‚

    Kelly

    Yummy soup recipe! I made this with whatever ingredients we had on hand, and it came out delicious. I added a chopped onion, did not peel the potatoes, left out bacon, and used 2/3 of the cheese. I used a carton of broth that made it more liquid and less thick, which we prefer.

      Lil' Luna

      That all sounds wonderful!! Thank you for sharing what you did πŸ™‚

    Cami

    Thank you! I successfully substituted Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 GF flour. Very tasty and simple!

      Lil' Luna

      Great! Thank you for sharing that! I’m glad you liked it πŸ™‚

    Kim

    I just made this tonight! It was awesome!!!

    Beth

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I even forgot to put the bacon on at the end (don’t tell my family I was supposed to add bacon) and it was still good. πŸ™‚ I will definitely be making it again.

      Lil' Luna

      Haha..you’re secret is safe with me! Though, you’ll need to try it with the bacon. So, much more added flavor πŸ™‚ Thanks so much!

    Annie

    Meh. Mine came out watery and under seasoned. Not a fan of combining the cheese sauce with the liquid as all mine did was curdle, (even with constant whisking far after the point of making the bechamel). I also think you put in the carrots and broccoli WAY too soon,(which I did not do, so at least mine is clumpy without mushy vegetables to boot), and even while avoiding that pitfall, this soup still came out watery and unappealing. I guess taking pretty pictures for Pinterest is more important than actually perfecting a recipe. This recipe was a complete fail.

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sorry you feel this way. I have never had a problem with mine being too watery or tasteless. This is one of our favs. Thanks for giving it a try though.

    Cheryl

    Wow, just made this and it is excellent!!!!
    5 stars

    kay hughlett

    Can you freeze the cheese broccoli soup?

      Lil' Luna

      I admit we haven’t freezed it, but I’m sure it would be just fine. πŸ˜‰

    Vitoria Samio

    This recipe is really yummy thanks.

    Christine

    Making this now, just wondering has anyone made this in a crockpot? If so, for how long?

    Bonnie

    Can the Broccoli soup be made in a crockpot?

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sure it can πŸ™‚ I haven’t made it that way, yet, but I would say on low for a few hours & make sure the veggies are cooked & soft.

    Susan

    You could also use potato flakes to thicken it and make it safe for celiacs and other wheat sensitive people to eat.

    Mark

    This is the best soup recipe I’ve found on the net. Simply made & Simply delicious! Looking forward to making this apart of my regular dish.

      Lil' Luna

      Yay!! That makes me so happy to hear! Thank you so much for letting me know and thank you for trying it!

    Cindy

    Instead of chicken broth , can you use Amish chicken base?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried, so I personally don’t know. I have never used that, but if it’s similar to chicken broth, it should be ok.

    Paula A

    I made the soup this morning. Oh, Yum. I added diced celery and that just notched it up in flavor. I prepared the recipe as posted and it came out perfect (except for adding the celery).

    Hi,
    I need information about the chiken broth. I’m a french canadian and I don’t understand what this mean.
    2 – 14.5 oz. cans chicken broth
    Is it : 2 cup plus 14.5oz
    2 cup OR 14.5oz
    only 14.5oz
    or the mix 3.75 cup ????

    Thanks

      Lil' Luna

      No worries! It’s 2 cans that are 14.5 ounces each. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

    Mmm, this soup was delicious! I forgot to get carrots but will definitely use them next time. I loved the flavor of this soup, it combines two of my favorites! I used an immersion blender before adding the cheese sauce! Great recipe, will definitely make again!

      Lil' Luna

      Oh, I bet the immersion blender made it so smooth! I’m glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know πŸ™‚

    Just made this, only I used cauliflower (I love the recipe in my Company’s Coming, by Jean Pare, cookbook), so I knew this one would hit the spot too. This one has a lot more veggies in it, so will be extra nutritious for my grandson at supper.

    I just made this creamy broccoli and cheese soup. It is so delicious. I did not add the bacon kept it for later in another recipe. I added real onions and cooked in bacon grease than added the cut up potatoes to fry a little also. Then added the broth. I used gluten free flour instead but real milk. Really thick and so tasty. Thank you Kristyn for this delightful Autumn recipe

    Can this be made with frozen broccoli? I just found this recipe and really want to make it tonight but don’t have fresh broccoli. Looks amazing!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Yes, of course! I would thaw it out first, maybe put in hot water. It really is so good!

    I printed the loaded broccoli cheese and potato soup. do you think vegetable broth would work okay? I have a friend that is a vegetarian and trying to make a soup she can eat as well.

      Kristyn Merkley

      I’m sure it would. I haven’t tried, but I bet it would taste great! Let me know how it turns out! Thank you!

      Kristyn Merkley

      Let me know what you think πŸ™‚ I hope you’ll like it as much as we do! Thank you!

    Hello … can you use 2% milk in this recipe? In other recipes, when I used 2% milk, the soup “curdled” … tastes delicious but I eat with my eyes also and just don’t like the way it looks!

    Doris

    Please send the pickle recipe…Thank you.

    Is flour in broccoli potato soup used mainly as thickener? Bc if so, skip 8t, it’ll be less thick,but winter, chouders are great

    john

    Thanks for sharing your time and recipes with everyone! So glad I can look up something so fast…. I love to cook but, I live by myself and crockpot dinners and stuff like casseroles is so easy to freeze or take to family dinner. You are so sweet for sharing thanks again.

      Kristyn Merkley

      Awe, you are so nice! I am so glad to share πŸ™‚ Yes, those are perfect to freeze! Thank you so much!!

    Wayne

    Looking forward to sharing with family

    I used a 32 oz. carton of chicken broth (a little more than was called for) a 1/4 cup diced onion (instead of onion powder), black pepper (instead of garlic pepper), and bacon bits (because I don’t usually have bacon). I’m sure that freshly cooked bacon would up the taste factor, but I’ve made this twice, and it was still great both times!

    Rebecca

    This was a stellar recipe!! It deserves all the stars!!
