Thick and creamy Broccoli Potato Soup is full of delicious vegetables and seasonings. It’s hearty and filling!
If you love flavorful soups you’ll definitely love loaded Broccoli Potato Soup! Rolls or French Bread are perfect for enjoying with your hearty soup.
a FAmily Fav!!
Soups are an obsession this time of year! I make them so often that you could almost call it a hobby.
This cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup is similar to our classic Broccoli Cheese Soup, but with Bacon and potatoes – amazing!
It’s so hearty and full of flavor. The soup ends up pretty thick making it almost a chowder. It can be made soupier by adding more broth or milk, which is how we prefer it. Either way, I think you’ll like it just as much as we did.
This soup is not only delicious and filling it is packed full of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and Iron as well.
How To Make Broccoli Potato Cheese Soup
You wouldn’t believe how fast this Broccoli Potato Soup is to make. Even with all the ingredients, it cooks in less than 30 minutes.
SIMMER. Begin by combining the chicken broth, carrots, potatoes, and onion powder. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Add broccoli, cover, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
THICKEN. While that’s simmering, melt the butter in a large saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook for another minute (or until golden brown).
Whisk in milk and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
SEASON. Add cheese and stir until it’s all melted. Add salt and garlic pepper to taste. Pour cheese sauce into the large pot and stir until well combined.
SERVE. Add more milk for a thinner consistency and add any additional salt and pepper needed. Top with bacon pieces, sour cream, and chives (if desired) and you’ll be in heaven!
Broccoli. We recommend using fresh broccoli, but frozen broccoli can be used. Give the frozen broccoli a quick steam before adding, or toss the frozen broccoli florets in with the chicken broth on STEP 1. This will be boiled and will help soften the broccoli.
Broth. Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth, or use a bouillon cube dissolved in water rather than broth. Either way, we recommend low sodium.
Potatoes. Yukon gold potatoes are medium starch potatoes, perfect for soups because they hold their shape well. Use any type of potatoes you have on hand, but be aware that potatoes with higher starch, like russet potatoes, may start to become “mealy”.
Cheese sauce. For a different layer of flavor, substitute the butter for an equal amount of bacon grease or use a little of both. Adding in the cheese slowly should help yield a smooth soup consistency.
Texture. Use an immersion blender to make a creamy texture rather than a stew texture. Cook it fully and gradually pulse the immersion blender through the soup to get rid of all the chunks. Make sure to remove the bay leaves before blending it all up.
Add heavy cream or half and half instead of milk for a creamier soup. Thin is out with extra broth or water.
FREEZE. Store leftovers in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags for up to 1 month. To cook, let the soup thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
Reheat the soup carefully over low to medium heat, whisking frequently and stirring well.

This looks so hearty and delicious… perfect for those cold Fall nights!
This is one of those soups that would warm you up from the inside out; it is the epitome of comfort!
Definitely a winner! Creamy, cheesy broccoli soups have always been a favorite and this one, being so deliciously loaded, is my kinda soup!
Broccoli Cheese Soup is one of our favorites! Thanks for the awesome looking recipe!
LOVE how hardy this soup is! 🙂 Perfect for fall.
And that should say *hearty*, lol! 😉
Hello, I’ve made this before and it was amazing with some fresh lightly toasted French bread with some butter. Is it possible to make this in the crockpot, if so how would you do it? Thank you (:
You know, I haven’t made this one in the crockpot before. I would probably say, do step 1 and 2 in the crockpot first. let those cook for a few hours on low. Then do steps 3 and 4 and add to the veggies in the crockpot. Give it a big stir and set it back on high for a bit. When it’s warm, do step 5 if needed and then serve. Again, I haven’t made the soup this way, but that’s probably what I’d try if attempting it in the crockpot. You’ll have to let us know what you end up doing and how it turns out!
Hearty soups like this are a favorite around here! Perfect comfort food!
I must make this one soon! It looks so delicious!
mmmm- adding this to the menu this week! Trying to pretend its fall weather here in California 😉
Loaded indeed – so chunky and wonderful!
I made this tonight for the family & it was just as delicious as it seems! Everyone went back for seconds (& thirds!). Thank you!
I love this soup!! Definitely a family favorite!! I want to make it for a friend, but they follow a gluten free diet. Is there any way to make this gluten free?
I’d just suggest using a different thickener than the flour, like cornstarch. OR you could try substituting a gluten free flour to thicken it? I haven’t tried it, so I’m not sure how it’d turn out, but those would be my suggestions!
I have used King Arthur‘a Measure for Measure GF flour to thicken cheese sauce and it turned out great!
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.
Does anyone know how much flour to add? On my end it shows a square box!
Hi Tatiana, the recipe calls for 1/3 cup of flour. Hope that helps.
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?
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.
How much garlic??
Just a clove. ????
Sounds sooo delicious! Thank you ????
It seems like a great recipe…. I am making it tomorrow so I will have to post how it comes out
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.
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.
I agree w/your comment, Jenny. I’d like to hear from people who have actually made the recipe, not those who just think it looks good. Those kinds of comments aren’t reviews & aren’t helpful to those wanting to try the recipe. Thank you.
I also add corn been making this for years so d Also try diced ham instead of bacon somet yum yum
Perfect! Thank you!
I agree 100%!
I’m with Jenny. I Hate comments on recipes, other than the people who actually made it. I waste so much time reading what people think about the picture or INGREDIENTs, I see Them too! I want what people actually thought about the outcome. And for the love of God, dont review on YOur OWn alterations. make it as is then I want input. We all KNow HOw to switch it up to our own tastes. Your tips matter, I dont like people who Leave a mile long review on what they changed. I want what I looked up. It’s also understandable to substitute if you have no choice, state that you did and it’s a no brainer it changed the original taste, still nice to know.
The first thing I do before trying any recipe is to read the comments and what was altered. Learn a lot and avoid pitfalls. AllRecipes comments are famous for it
I’m with Joe! I, too, look at comments before I make a recipe. I like to hear if the people liked it, AND enjoy their comments AND substitutions they have used, And suggested times and temps they used if at first they had a problem. Then I’d decide for myself. I am learning, however, to pass up the comments that start with I just hate when people comment on something they haven’t even made or when they give
their substitutions.” Then QUIT reading the comments! NOW, having read the comments I will go ahead and make it!
Hope you enjoy the recipe!!
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.
Sorry but that has to be a joke. The homemade is what we are wanting here, her recipe. Maybe It would be a great tip to Post on Betty CROCKER, I DON’T even want to imagine that taste. Sorry
Has anyone figured out the amount of calories in this by chance?
Thanks ahead of time!
what in Gods name does TB of butter mean , surely not tubs , if so than its not very healthy
then that would be Tbs, not TB that to me stands for tub
Tbl is tablespoons. Sounds like someone needs a hug..
TBL is tablespoon…..tsp is teaspoon……
I would say that would be Tablespoon, the usual abbreviation is large T. for tablespoon and small t. for teaspoon.
TB is Tablespoon
TB – tablespoon
On what planet does TB stand for tub?
Way to much fat content with all that cheese
Then dont make it! Gosh she gave the recipe for Free… Dont like it, move On!!! I dont Get negative ungreatful people!!
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!
Can you substitute another broth beside chicken husband allergic to it. Onion pepper the garlic pepper never heard of are those ingredients a must?
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.
I would think vegetable broth would work in substitution for the chicken broth.
I substituted vegetable stock for chicken broth since it was all I had on had and it is delish!
Good to know…thanks for sharing!! Glad you liked it! 🙂
You could just make it with water, thus creating a vegetable broth by boiling the carrots, and potatoes before adding in the broccoli.
Thanks for sharing Sheryl. I was going to suggest vegetable broth as well! 🙂
Vegetable broth could work.
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.
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!
Is it self rising flour or plain?
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 .
Was absolutely delicious!
Can the soup be made in a crock pot?
If so what would be the cooking time?
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!
Thank you, Goat Lady, for your great comment. Tubs? Gotta wonder sometimes. Also, if the fat content is too much for some people, they don’t have to make or eat it. Easy peasy, right?
Is this recipe freezable?
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:)
We froze it in quart sized bags for quick dinners. It tasted the same. My family loves it
That’s perfect!! Thank you for sharing and so happy you’re family liked it!!
What is the estimated serving size =
I would say 4-6 people:) Let me know if you give it a try and what you think! It is so good!
Can you tell how many servings? I have a large family of 9 and always look for serving size. Thank you.
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!
Thank-you for sharing!
You’re welcome Terry!! Thanks for stopping by!
Looks great wish I had some right now.
Haha…well, what’s stopping you?!:) We love it!!
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??
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!
My family absolutely Loves this soup!! I never did try it in the crock put, don’t k ow how it would fair having to make the roux. I have made it a number of times now and it always turns out great. I add a little more garlic pepper than the recipe calls for. Ever since buying it for this soup I am obsessed with it and put it on everything. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Everyone must try!!
Awe, thank you so much for sharing that!! I add garlic pepper on so many recipes! It’s my favorite seasoning!
How many servings does this recipe make?
Looks soo good! Doing this tomorrow for sure.
Thanks:) How did it turn out? It’s one of our favorites!!
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.
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.
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.
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:)
I am gonna make this today..
I hope you love it, like we do!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
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!
Glad you liked it!:) We love this soup! Thanks for letting me know!!
Just made this soup today, turned out great. Simple to make and ready on 30 minutes. Loved it!
I LOVE this soup!! Thank you for giving it a try & letting me know!!
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
LOL!! I could eat it year long, too! So, glad you all like it!! Thanks for letting me know!
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”
It’s definitely a keeper for cooler temps!! Hope you like it, as much as I do!!
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 🙂
Thank you for giving it a try! I’m glad you both liked it!! Thank you for letting me know!
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!
Thanks for sharing!! I’m so glad you liked it!!
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.
Thank you!! How’d it turn out? That’s one of my favs!!
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!
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!
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!!!!
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. 🙂
LOL!! This is one of our favs! I don’t usually wait until cooler weather!
Is it just me that hasn’t heard of garlic pepper?
You’d find it with the spices. We use it a lot! Adds more flavor than just pepper.
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 🙂
The broccoli will be going in boiling water, so it’s ok if it’s frozen. We LOVE this soup..hopefully, you will too!
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 🙂
So glad to hear that!!! This is one of my favs 🙂 Thank you for letting me know!!
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!
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 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!
Can someone tell me if you drain the water out of the veggies or do u leave it in ??
You do not! You’ll need the the liquid to mix with the other ingredients. Glad you stopped by!
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.
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!
I tried this recipe tonight and it was so easy. It came out great. Thanks for a great recipe.
Thank you so much for trying this recipe!! Glad you liked it!!
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!
That sounds amazing! I’ll need to try that! Thank you for sharing!
Made these and they are delicious!
That makes me so happy to hear that!! Thanks so much for letting me know!
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?
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!!!
would it be okay to use about 16 ounce bag of frozen florets vice fresh
Yes, of course 🙂
Curious, has anyone substituted cheddar with Velveeta?
Will be making and planned to add some. I’ll report back.
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.
It’s one of my favs!!! Thanks so much for letting me know!!
A must make! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much!!!
I have made this a few times now and just have to tell you how amazing it is!! Thank you for this recipe!
Oh, thank you so much for letting me know! I love this soup too!! Glad you like it!
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!
Yum!! It is perfect for a cold night 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
I made this tonight and I am so thrilled. It is AMAZING. I did tweak it a little. I sautéed 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:)
That sounds great!! I’m so glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!
This was so delicious, glad i doubled the ingredients!
It’s one of my favs!! Thank you for letting me know!!
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!
That sure is the beauty of it 🙂 I’m so glad it was a hit! Thank you for giving it a try and for letting me know!
I made this yesterday …I did tweak a bit. It was delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe.
You are so welcome!! I’m glad you liked it!! Thanks so much for giving it a try!
Made it, the milk didn’t thicken, I would suggest more flour and butter to start.
Sorry about that! I’m glad you still liked it 🙂 Thank you!
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?
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!
Yay! We sure love this soup, as well 🙂 So, glad you both liked it! Thank you for sharing!
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 ????
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.
That all sounds wonderful!! Thank you for sharing what you did 🙂
Thank you! I successfully substituted Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 GF flour. Very tasty and simple!
Great! Thank you for sharing that! I’m glad you liked it 🙂
I just made this tonight! It was awesome!!!
Yay!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
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. 🙂 I will definitely be making it again.
Haha..you’re secret is safe with me! Though, you’ll need to try it with the bacon. So, much more added flavor 🙂 Thanks so much!
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.
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.
Wow, just made this and it is excellent!!!!
Thanks so much, Cheryl!! I’m so glad you liked it!!
Can you freeze the cheese broccoli soup?
I admit we haven’t freezed it, but I’m sure it would be just fine. 😉
This recipe is really yummy thanks.
I’m glad you liked it!! Thank you!
Making this now, just wondering has anyone made this in a crockpot? If so, for how long?
Can the Broccoli soup be made in a crockpot?
I’m sure it can 🙂 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.
You could also use potato flakes to thicken it and make it safe for celiacs and other wheat sensitive people to eat.
Great idea! Thank you for sharing!!
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.
Yay!! That makes me so happy to hear! Thank you so much for letting me know and thank you for trying it!
Instead of chicken broth , can you use Amish chicken base?
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.
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).
Try it, you’ll love it!
Thank you Paula!! I am so glad you liked it!!
I’m having company and that soup,Broccoli and Cheese,is going to be the best…
It will be a hit!! Have fun & let me know what everyone thinks 🙂
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
or the mix 3.75 cup ????
No worries! It’s 2 cans that are 14.5 ounces each. Hope that helps 🙂
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!
Oh, I bet the immersion blender made it so smooth! I’m glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know 🙂
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.
Sounds great! I’ll have to try that! Thanks!
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
Sounds yum! Thank you so much for sharing!
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!
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.
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!
yeah adore to it chunky soup in winter night 🙂 will try this weekend
Let me know what you think 🙂 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!
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
Yes, it is 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I made this today and it’s delicious but wasn’t as thick as I thought it would be. What did I do wrong?
I’m honestly not sure. Did you follow the recipe exactly?
looks easy and quick to make and looks tasty, will try it soon.
It really is 🙂 Let me know what you think! Thank you!
This was excellent! Will definitely make again.
Yay! Thanks so much!!
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.
Awe, you are so nice! I am so glad to share 🙂 Yes, those are perfect to freeze! Thank you so much!!
Looking forward to sharing with family
I hope they all like it, as much as we do. Thanks so much!
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!
Great options..I agree, it’s good with or without bacon 🙂
This was a stellar recipe!! It deserves all the stars!!
Glad you thought so!! Thank you so much for letting me know!
In your potato,broccoly and carrot soup can you substitue vegetable broth??
Yes 🙂 Hope you like it!
Why when I hit print, it comes up blank. Can’t print your recipes.
I’m honestly not sure? It comes up on mine. You might need to check your settings. I hope you get it 🙂
Easy to make and delicious.
Thank you! That’s why we love it!
Oh my goodness. Such a great recipe I HAD to leave a comment. I’m not a big fan of carrot so I substituted it with cauliflower and I added some sautéed onion. Also used 2% Lactaid instead of whole milk to give my semi-lactose intolerant husband a fighting chance. SO good! I added chives along with the crumbled bacon on top and feel like I could’ve eaten 3 bowls. Thanks for the great recipe. 5 stars
I am so happy to hear that!! Thanks for sharing your changes! Glad you liked it!
Looks easy enough, I will try it tonight. thank you
It’s super easy! Let me know what you think 🙂 Hope you like it!
This is really delicious.
It’s one of my favs!! Glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!
I made this yesterday…first, I pressure cooked 3 chicken breasts till super tender, shredded them, set aside and used the liquid as the broth for the recipe. Did everything else as the recipe directed, but added the shredded chicken at the end. With the chicken, this was turned into a complete meal in itself! And SO good!
Totally filling with chicken!! I’m glad you gave it a try. Thank you for sharing!
The recipe sounds wonderful and since it is snowing and the wind is howling it warms my heart just thinking about it. Thanks
This is great. Can you freeze the extra?
I haven’t, but I’m sure you could 😉
Could you combine everything and put into a crockpot?
I’m sure you could! I personally haven’t tried, but usually crockpots work great for just about anything 🙂
Question – kind of Cheese – Sharp Cheddar or Mild Cheddar ? Which one?
It could really be either. I just use what I have on hand, so I think I’ve used both.
I’ve made this twice now and am making it tonight for a church potluck. I’m going to make it as stated and then just put it in the crockpot on warm to take it. I was hoping to find someone that had put it in the crockpot already. I followed the recipe except for adding a few additional spices and we loved it!! Had no trouble with milk/flour ratio, soup being watery, or cheese curdling. We’re a picky family of 5 and this has been a huge hit!
I love hearing that!! Thank you for giving it a try and I’m happy it’s a hit!
I am interested in different recipes and this looks great for company. If you have any nutritional counts like calories, fat, carbs, sodium, fiber, sodium, potassium etc. if at all possible, I would like that. Also any one or two serving meals would be great too, as I do live alone. I also entertain often. Thanks !
I am sorry, I do not have the nutritional counts. This is a crowd please! You can always adjust any recipe you want to try. I’d just half it 🙂
Made this soup today for my husband and I. Was delicious. I used cubed Ham in mine instead of putting bacon on top!
Great idea!! Thank you for letting me know! Glad you both liked it!
I saw this recipe this morning. And was excited that I had everything to make it. Just finished it My son tried it & said it is amazing!!! Thank you ????
Perfect!! Thank you so much for letting me know! I love when I have everything on hand to make something!
Your recipes are fantastic- Out family loves getting new recipes to make!!!
You are so sweet!! So, do we! Thank you for letting me know 🙂
Delicious! But put the milk in after melting the butter, then the flour. Otherwise you get little chunks and it’s doesn’t melt properly.
This is a mega cheesy soup! I just made it and haven’t added the bacon bits yet, but so far it tastes good.
I am so glad you think so!! It is one of my favorites!! Thank you!
This is probably the best potato soup I’ve tried.
I am so glad you think so!! We love it!! Thank you for trying it & letting me know!
I just made this and it’s soooo delicious! I used a small onion in place of the onion powder, used frozen broccoli instead of the fresh. (About 2/3 of a 32 oz bag) I sautéed the onions and carrots in a couple tablespoons of butter until they were halfway done, then added the potatoes and chicken stock. I ended up using a 32 oz carton of chicken stock. Simmered for the recommended time, added the broccoli and while that was simmering, made the cheese sauce. If you are a fan of Panera’s broccoli cheddar soup, this is VERY close to it. This will definitely be a regular in my home!
Thank you so much for sharing that!! I agree, that it is very close to the original. Glad you like it!!
Loved the recipe for the brocalli, cheese and potatoe soup.
I am happy to hear that! We love it too! Thank you for letting me know!
Could this be made gluten free by using a corn starch slurry for thickener instead of the flour?
I am sure it could. I personally haven’t tried, but if you are familiar with substituting that, then it should 🙂
Receipes look so good,can,t wait to try them!
I love brocolli cheese soup and this is one of my favorites!
Yes, I agree! It’s my favorite, too! Thank you for the rating 🙂
Can this soup be frozen?
I made a lot of different loaded broccoli, potatoe and cheese soup, this has got to be the BEST!! I made all of your recipes and they were all yummy! Thank you so much for posting them!
You are so welcome!! I am glad you think so. Thank you for trying them & sharing that. I haven’t tried freezing it, but I don’t see why it couldn’t 🙂
This is one of those soups that would warm you up from the inside out; it is the epitome of comfort!
I love that!! It really does 🙂 Thank you so much for saying that!
Hi can you use a milk substitute?
I haven’t tried, but I am sure that would be ok 🙂 Enjoy!
Made this soup 3x. It’s the best soup ever!! Thanks so much for an awesome recipe..
You are so welcome!! Thank you for trying it & for letting me know 🙂
I want to try this recipe with half n half instead of milk. How much should I use?
I would just use the same amount. I haven’t tried using it, but I would think the same amount of liquid. Enjoy!
What is the serving size? I read througH the comments and couldnt find the answer. Cant wait tO make this.
It’s about 1-2 cups depending on how big those servings are 🙂
I made this and it was perfect for a gloomy fall day. The only thing I changed was That I blended the carrots and potatoes before adding the broccoli for a smoother texture. It came out perfect.
Perfect! Thank you so much for letting me know. I am glad you tried it!
Love this soup!!! Super feeling WITHout being Extremely heavy. My babies love it! Sometimes i will sprinkle In some rotisserie chicken for my husband.
I know It GIVES the CALORIEs ANd other Nutrition facts, but it doesn’t give a measurement for what a SERving size is? Or Are the nutritional FACts for the WHOle pot of soup?
I made this recipE today and its delicious. I doubled it for leftovers and i worked well. Highly recommend!
Thank you for trying it!! I am happy to hear that you like it!!
Oh my gosh, this soup is sooo good. My family has gone crazy over it!
Woohoo…love hearing that! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much!! I hope you will give it a try!
This is the best broccoli cheese soup recipe I have tried to date. It was fantastic! This is the kind of soup to eat in front of a fireplace with some fuzzy socks on while watching a movie. I will absolutely make it again. Thank you for sharing.
I am right there with ya!! Thank you for sharing that!
This soup is delicious. I used all fresh ingredients. Just the right consistency and flavoring.
It’s one of my favs! Thank you for letting me know!
delicious soup & easy to make 🙂
Thank you so much for giving it a try 🙂
How would i make this in My crockpot?
I haven’t made this specific recipe in a crock pot, because it’s all in steps. But, maybe do steps 1 & 2 on low for an hour, then you would have to do step 3 over the stove, then add it & continue on with the recipe for a couple hours. Hope that helps. You can always adjust if you feel the veggies are done enough or take away time.
I followed this recipe exactly and it was not chunky. It WAsn’t thick and it was a little grainy from the potatoes cooking too long.
Oh, no 🙁 I’m sorry. I’m not sure what happened? It shouldn’t have ended up like that.
Maybe i missed it but is the serving size One cup or more? Thank you!
It’s about a cup to a cup & a half 🙂
Great RECIpe! i I substituted 1 cup of milk for water and sauteed SOme Garlic and carrots first. I also added some parmesan to The cheese sauce with white cheddar. A little lighter, but man what a great recipe! Thank you!
Sounds great! I am glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know 🙂
Wow I can’t believe how high the sodium is in this soup. But it looks so good
For those asking if you can do this in a crockpot, yes you can. I put the carrots And potatoes in with the broth for 4 hours on low. Added THe broccoli with 45 mins to go. (Carrots and potatoes were fork tender) at 30 mins to go I made the cheese Sauce on the stove and then added it to the pot. I turned it up To high and let it Go. It came out great.
Thank you for sharing that 🙂
I made this during a snow storm in Northeast Ohio. It was easy and didnt take too long to make. I used some spicy seasoning salt and no carrots, it was delish! Best soup ive ever made
I hope it warmed you up!! Thank you so much!
Delicious & so easy. Thanks
You are so welcome! Thank you 🙂
Just finished making this soup for the second time in a week. It is so easy and so deliciOus. Today im going to blend the soup so that my two grandsons wont know what yummy vegetables they’re eating?. SeRVered it last week (first time making it) to our frieNds wHo wanted the recipe. Great recipe for a cold wintery day.
That’s a good idea about blending it!! They’ll never know 🙂 Thank you for letting me know!
Absolutely delicious!! I took it to a cocktail party last night and it was devoured! Everyone commented on how great it tasted. Thanks for posting to pinterest.
Yay!! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I am so glad it was a hit!
Do you Use a 32 oz bag of shredded cheese?
I like to measure in cups, but you would think it’s about that. You really couldn’t go wrong with more or less cheese.
Can this be made in a crock pot?
It sure could 🙂
How much soup per serving? Thanks!
I LOVE this recipe.. I don’t even like broccoli and I’ve made this a recipe a few times!
LOL!! Well, that makes me happy to hear!! Thank you!
I made this last year and it is amazing but I recently found out that I am gluten intolerant and cannot have the flour. any recommendations on what to replace it with? I would really love to be able to have this again and it cannot be almond flour as im allergic to most nuts.
I am not a gluten expert, but I recommend google. It’s my best friend when I need to know good substitutes. I don’t want to tell you anything wrong. Good luck & hope you find something!
Easy to make and absolutely delicious!
Thank you for saying that! I am glad you think that!
Does any know about how much frozen broccoli shouLd be SUBSTITUTED for the 2 small heads of broccoli that are washed and diceD small?
I would say about 2 cups, but really you can add more or take out less 🙂
This is a Really easy recipe and sooper delicious.
I am so glad you think so! Thank you for letting me know 🙂
Thank you for the recipe, so easy and straightforward. best soup i have ever tried.
Awe, thank you for saying that! I am glad you tried it!
DeliciouS! I dId add sauteed onions.
That would be perfect! I am so glad you liked it!
so good. second time making it. doublingthe recipe and added some ham chunks.
Perfect!! I will have to do that! Thank you for sharing that!
I made this last year & it is really good. I did not use garlic since I am allergic. Making it again tonight with hot french bread to dip in it. Really great soup, I am very picky about my food too.
Mmm..homemade french bread with it, would be so yummy!! Glad you like it! Thank you 🙂
well the soup is made and smells delicious…the true test of a keeper soup recipe is how my hubby likes it….I have a feeling this soup will be 2 thumbs up!!!
Thank you!! I sure hope he likes it! You’ll have to let me know 🙂
This soup is delicious!! My kids and husband (who doesn’t like soup unless he can eat it with a fork) loved it! So easy and fast to put together, I cooked the bacon the night before and chopped the veggies. I used Yukon gold potatoes and didn’t peel them, I just hate peeling potatoes. My only suggestion is to make sure you chop your veggies small, so your kids can eat this by themselves. Thanks for the recipe, I will be making this again soon!
You are welcome 🙂 Glad everyone liked it! I hate peeling, too! Thank you!
I made this today. oh my. so delicious. I sauteed a medium sized onion and some minced garlic in the bacon drippings and added them to the other vegetables. also added some chicken bouillon base to the chicken broth. To the spices I added lawrey’s seasoned salt, cayenne and lemon pepper. definitely a keeper!
That sounds delicious! I am so happy that you liked it! Thank you for sharing what you added!
Thanks so much!!
Made exactly as is, Except added .5 cups half & half And 3 cups of 2% milK. It was scrumptious!! PerfecT for This chilly january day. Thank you!
You are welcome!! That is perfect! Thank you for sharing that!
I have made this in the past anD LOVED IT. i USE A 32 OUNCE THING OF BROTH AND USUALLY ADD ROASTED GARLIC AT THE END OR TO INDIVIDUAL BOWLS. tHIS TIME i DID NOT HAVE ROASTED GARLIC BUT ADDED A LEEK, INSTEAD OF ONION POWDER.
Sounds great! Thank you so much for sharing that!!
We love soup and that loaded brocoli potatoe cheese soup looks SO good.
Thank you!! It really is! I hope you will give it a try!
ThIs Soup was delicious! Your recipes aRe always a winner in our househOld.
Awe, that makes me so happy to hear! Thank you so much for saying that & trying my recipes 🙂
Thanks so much! I hope you try it!
just finished making exactly as recipe states. Yummy very flavourful. Next time I would like to try real onions and garlic. Thank you for the great recipe.
You are so welcome!! Thank you for trying it!
rECIPE WAS VERY BLAND AND NOT REALLY CHEESY AT ALL!! i HAD TO TWEAK IT QUITE A BIT BEFORE IT EVEN TASTED GOOD AT ALL. I ENDED UP PUTTING MORE CHEESE, PATOTOES, AND BROCCOLI IN IT AS WELL AS THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID WITH BARELY ANY VEGATABLES. lASTLY I ENDED UP PUTTING THE BACON IN THE ACTUAL SOUP.
Thanks for trying it!
what is the serving size?
Close to a cup and a half 🙂 Enjoy!!
Very warming and delicious, but i reccomend using 1/2-1 diced white or red onion (if youre sensitive to onions use less or the reds) and 3-4 diced garlic cloves (again based on your sensitivity) and substitute the garlic pepper for just fresh cracked pepper! Also you can cook the bacon in the oven at the same time the soup is simmering to save time.
I know this is a bit more prep but fresh ingredients are always worth the work.
Thanks for sharing that!
I just love this soup. Perfect for a chilly autumn or winter meal.
Packed with chunky vegetables and thick cheese goodness.
Happy you like it! It’s one of my favs! Thank you!
This recipe was absolutely delicious. we omitted the bacon for religious reasons, but totally best soup ive ever made!
I am so glad to hear that!! Thank you so much for letting me know!
Made tHis tonight very very goOd
Happy you tried it! Thank you so much!
How would I cook this recipe in an instant pot?
I personally haven’t tried, so I would need to play around with the recipe.
We just made this recipe and goodness gracious it was amazing !!!! My husband who is a Velveeta & broccoli type of man devoured a full bowl and claims he’s coming back for seconds before bed !!! Thank you for providing us with this undeniably great recipe !! Gonna give a bowl to my mother in law as well .
You are so welcome! I love to hear that! Thank you so much!!
Best I’ve made
I did use 1 stick real butter with 1 cup flour then added 3 cans milnot milk and 2 lbs velvetta cheese!!! Wow 🤩
Perfect!! Thank you for sharing that!!
I made this broccoli soup and it was great. very easy to make. I make rolls to go with it as it was so filling.
Rolls are the perfect side! Happy you liked it! Thank you so much!
Loved it. Really hit the spot.
I am so glad it did!! Thank you so much!!
I love soup and try different ones often
I hope you try & like this one! It’s one of my favorites!
This was fantastic! Soup is my love language in the colder months, and I love a creamy soup but hate how gritty a roux can be sometimes. This one was not! Also surprised by the flavor…thought for sure I would need more salt, but this was spot on. I didn’t have garlic pepper, so I did a 1/2 tsp of garlic salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper. Thanks so much. Adding to my favorites!
That makes me so happy to hear!! Thank you so much for trying it 🙂
Made for dinner tonight! Very well liked! This ade so much I am putting part in the freezer for another weeknight treat. My mother used to make potato soup- all watery and milky with no add-ins. This is light years better! Thanks!
Awe, thank you for saying that! Glad you think so 🙂 Thank you!
How much is considered a serving for the nutritional facts
So tasty, even my picky eater loves it. And super easy!
My family loves this soup. It’s so hearty and perfect when it’s super cold. Super easy to make and delicious!
Delicious! I didn’t have carrots but made it exactly as the recipe states otherwise. My whole family loved it!
This is the best soup. Easy to make a very flavorful! Thank you so much
You are so welcome! I am so glad you think so 🙂
Easy to make and delicious!
Glad you think so 🙂 Thank you so much for trying it!
Me and my family loved this. I am 15 and pretty experienced but it was still a simple recipe to make! I totally recommend!!!
Thank you for recommending it!! That’s awesome!
Fabulous so easy o prepare !
So, glad you think so 🙂 Thank you!
This is a wonderful soup! Have passed on recipe and will make it many times in the future! Kathy
That is so nice of you! Thank you for letting me know!
Good recipe but pretty flavorless. I cooked bacon first then setting it aside and used the fat to cook the onion. Also added ground white pepper for a little heat and flavor.
Thank you for trying it!
Just made this today,it was so awesome definitely will be making this again
Happy to hear that! Thank you for trying it!
This is my favorite place to get recipes. She is very good.
Awe, you are so nice! Thank you so much!
DELICIOUS soup recipe!!! Made it exactly as the recipe states and it’s awesome! It’s a go to in our house! Perfect for a cold winter day! Thanks for posting!
I’m so glad you liked the soup! It’s the best on a winter day!
My new favorite soup! It was delicious! My family loved it!
What is garlic pepper?
Sorry about that! It should say “garlic powder” instead of “garlic pepper”. Thanks for catching that!
Very easy recipe and it was wonderfully rich
Used olive and margarine instead. Was all I had.
Used tapioca flour cause it’s easier for me to work with
Added one tablespoon of red pepper flakes because I’m a guy
Used Muenster cheese and cut back the amount by 2/3
No bacon. Don’t eat it anymore
Making the rouix instead of directly adding flour to thicken made all the difference imo
Thanks for sharing what you did! I’m so glad you enjoyed the soup!!
I used extra flour because I used fat free milk. It was very thin. I added mashed potatoes and more cheese . Still way too thin
Thanks for your feedback and for giving the recipe a try!
We added some frozen veggies and onion and celery with some roasted garlic bullion. That made the taste better. We also lowered the milk to 2 3/4 Cups of milk instead of 3 1/2
Sounds like some tasty adaptations. Glad you enjoyed the soup!
Just made this recipe for meal prep for the week and gosh is it delicious! I used frozen broccoli and tossed it in at the beginning with the potatoes and carrots and used almond milk since that’s all I had and they turned out great! I also cut the recipe in half since it’s just me and it still turned out perfect. Can’t recommend this enough!
Yay!! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed the soup. Thanks for sharing what you did too!
My husband and I LOVE this soup!!! He says he could eat it everyday! So good on a rainy fall day like today! It’s a very quick and easy recipe. I’ll be making it again this evening. YUMMMMMM!!!
Oh yay!! I’m so glad you and your husband enjoyed the soup!
This soup has become a family favorite
Yay!! So glad to hear that!
My husband doesn’t like broccoli so I followed the recipe exactly except I used fresh asparagus instead. It is delicious but it makes a lot for just 2 people. How do you think it would freeze? Has anyone tried?
I’m a sous-chef. Freezing for up to three to four months in my house is common. Still just as tasty- check for freezer burn
Thanks for sharing!!
I added celery and onion with the potatoes and carrots. I also reduced the milk to two cups.
Prior to adding the cheese sauce, I pureed the boiled veggies with my immersion blender.
Everyone LOVED this soup!
Can’t wait to try this! Any suggestions on how to do it in the crockpot? 😁
Just throw it all in the pot and go. Make your flour into a paste in cold water before adding it though. Add that at the end. Let cook an extra thirty minutes. Should thicken in my opinion.
thank you. was wondering the same thing. I do almost all my cooking in a crock pot.
Hubby loved it, and he is very picky! Thank you!!
You’re welcome!! So glad to hear he was a fan of the soup!
Wow was that good!
Yay! Glad you enjoyed the soup!
This was excellent! I did add/change a few things though. Instead of the garlic and onion powder, I sautéed half an onion and some garlic. I sautéed the carrots with the onion and garlic mixture. When it was done cooking, I added some wild green onions and red pepper flakes. Thanks for the recipe!
Yum! Thanks for sharing what you did. Glad you enjoyed the soup!!
This soup was delicious…my fiancée is picky and loved it…I tossed my carrots, onion powder, and potatoes along with some Roasted garlic in my rendered bacon fat before adding the broth and it came out wonderfully!
Yay! So glad to hear the soup was a hit. Thanks for sharing what you did too.
I added celery and onion with the potatoes and carrots. I also reduced the milk to two cups.

Everyone LOVED this soup!
So glad the soup was enjoyed! Thanks for sharing what you did.
It has too much sodium. How can I lower the sodium a lot. I can’t have salt.
You could use low sodium chicken broth, unsalted butter, omit or reduce the amount of salt added, etc.
My husband loves this soup!! We make it all the time. The chunks of potatoes & carrots are so tender & the flavor is incredible!
So easy to make, and absolutely delicious! We didn’t have any leftovers, lol.
Oh my, this soup sounds incredible! I bet it tastes amazing!!
I love the twist on broccoli cheddar soup! What a hearty meal on a cold day 🤤
A great soup for a cold night. Just can’t go wrong with this or any soup. We love soups any time of the year.
I really liked the texture of this soup as well as the taste. Next time I think I’ll Extra add bacon bits on top. Great recipe.
I want to sear and add cubed chicken too. Do you think this will make it too thick? should I add more liquid if I do? thanks!
I would try and add the cubed chicken to the soup first and see if you think it’s too thick. If you think it’s too thick then add a little bit of liquid to get the right thickness that you want. Keep adding liquid until you get to the desired consistency. Hope this helps!
Very tasty and hardy soup
Will be one of our favorates
I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe! It’s definitely one of my favorites too! 🙂
We had a baked potato bar last night with lots of leftovers! I stripped the skin off and cubes the leftover potatoes and tossed that and leftover cooked broccoli into the soup after everything else was cooked through. Yum! It turned out a great way to use up the leftovers!
That’s a great idea!! An excellent way to use up those extra potatoes and broccoli!
This was easy to put together and simply DELICIOUS! I will be making this again. Made on the stovetop and used 1 pint of heavy cream instead of 3 1/2 cups of milk. Used immersion blender to chop to desired consistency.
Thanks for sharing what you did. I’m so glad you enjoy the recipe!
The best ❤️❤️❤️
Absolutely delicious!! My husband ate 2 bowls of the wonderful soup. Easy to make and have leftovers for tomorrow. We ate it with some delicious bread!!
This is so good! The next day we ate it again for lunch and it was like all the vegetable melted into each other.Goes well with a bread bowl!
Yay! So glad you enjoyed the soup. Love this one in a bread bowl as well!
A bread bowl is a great idea 👍
Would a serving be about 2 cups?
Made this recipe for dinner tonight. Quick and delicious. Only change I made was 1 extra tsp. Of garlic powder and some black pepper. I will definitely make this again.
Sounds yummy! I’m so glad you enjoyed the soup. Thanks for sharing!
Best potato soup I’ve tried. Flavorful & perfect for fall! And doesn’t take long to make. I used red potatoes & kept the skins on.
I forgot to mention I sauteed some onion in the butter before adding the flour.
Oh I’m so happy to hear that you love the soup! I bet the red potatoes in there were yummy!
Why did my cheese curdle. Still tastes good
Cheese may curdle if the temperature of the soup is too hot. It’s best to bring your soup to a low simmer and then add the cheese in gently and stir. Glad to hear it still tasted delicious!
My family loved it!
I’m so happy to hear that! Thanks for sharing!
This was scrumptious.Easy and quick. I had a bit of left over mashed so I tossed them in to!
Yummy! So glad you enjoyed the soup!
Amazing soup recipe! My family ate every drop! My picky as heck 13 year old daughter ate three bowls!! I used the Kirkland Shredded Tex Mex cheese from Costco for extra flavour kick and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Flour in the cheese sauce to keep it gluten free. 1% milk kept it low fat and still it was super creamy. So good, esp with a green salad and followed with homemade Blueberry Peach Crumble. Make a Tik Tok of the meal: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiWZ6tPg4BR/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
Excellent recipe! My family devoured it. My picky 13 year old ate three bowls.
I used the Kirkland Shredded Tex Mex cheese from Costco for an extra flavour boost. Highly recommend it! Also, Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour to make it gluten free. To keep the fat content down I used 1% milk and it was still perfectly creamy! Followed it up with a Blueberry Peach Crumble. My family was in heaven with such comfort food.
Made a Tik Tok of the meal:
Our whole family enjoyed this potato soup! The bacon gave it enough seasoning also. We had ours a loaf of baguette bread. Yummy!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe! Definitely will put in our fall rotation….
My husband and I loved this recipe! However, I did experience the milk/cheese sauce curdle after adding it to the vegetable mix. Not being an expert cook, I wonder what I did or did not do to cause this. Both the vegetable soup and cheese sauce were very hot. The sauce was smooth before I added it. Just a visual thing, as the soup was wonderful and since it makes so much, we will be eating it again and again.
This soup was delicious and a new family favorite! I used veggie broth because it’s what I had on hand and I used heavy cream instead of milk because we love thick soups and OMG. My husband exact words were “Panera bread, what?!” Lol. Even my 2 year old kept said “Ummy!” while eating it lol. Would highly recommend with some garlic butter sourdough bread sticks 🤤
I’m so glad that your family enjoyed the soup! The addition of the breadsticks on the side sounds amazing!!
This was a favorite for my family! I added 2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning as well, which gave a small amount of heat. I will definitely make this again.
I’ve made this before, love it for the chilly days.. I wonder if this can be done in crockpot??
It is one of our favorites! Yes, you could do it in the crock pot!
I’ve been making this soup for quite a few years now and just wanted to drop a comment. It’s absolutely delicious! I usually add a chicken breast in with mine just for extra protein. It’s perfect as it is though!
I rate this a 10. I find it to be so easy to make and it’s delicious
It’s a good soup but the prep time was much longer than 10 minutes which I knew before I made it. Who can peel and cube potatoes & carrots and brown and crumble 6 bacon strips and trim 2 heads of broccoli all in 10 minutes? I’ve been preparing meals for my family for 45 years. To say it’s 10 minute prep time isn’t fair to those Mom’s looking for a quick meal. The soup was delicious but it took an hour to prepare.
Making it now and it smells delicious! Just wondering what garlic pepper is? I used garlic and pepper but wasn’t sure if there was a different spice I wasn’t aware of! Thx for the recipe
This cooked up wonderfully!! Great for a cold night!!
Definitely will make again !!!
Absolutely one of our favorite soups. My 80ish mother-in-law who is a great soup maker says this is the best soup she’s ever had. Now she thinks I’m a pretty good cook!
Very good for cold days ahead.
I haven’t made too many soups before, well not creamy soups anyway, but this one turned out really good! My kids went back for more! I will definitely be making this again! I did end up adding a bit more cheese.
Can I use heavy cream instead of milk?
Great flavor and easy to make!
Absolutely love this recipe. Perfect anytime but fabulous in the cooler months. It has a little of everything! Filling and loaded with flavor.
Going to make this, it sounds wonderful. Home made soup is so much more tasty.
Easy and delicious 😋
Can you use any type of potatoes?
Amazing!!! I followed exactly and myself and my family absolutely loved it!!
Has anyone tried using regular or low sodium Velveeta for this? I’ve found Velveeta and heavy cream turns every soup Ive tried it with so far that require cheese and milk, into a silky heaven. I’m about to make this soup but I’m wondering if I shouldn’t boil the potatoes potatoes in a separate pot if I’m going to use Velveeta in order to cut back on the starch and thickness? Just wondering if anyone’s done that and how it turned out and if you changed anything else to incorporate Velveeta instead of real cheese. I always have a ton of both on hand. But I really like the way soups turn out with Velveeta even though I despised it all my life until I discovered how well it works in soups.
I haven’t ever tried this recipe with Velveeta. I’d be curious to hear how it turned out! 🙂
Absolutely Amazing Soup, was so delicious! My sister tried it and loved it and shared with me. Was a big hit with hubby. I definitely recommend. I used heavy cream instead of milk and my sister used milk, delicious both ways. It is creamy and flavorful. Definitely a meal all by itself, filling and comforting!! 💞I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing Krystin. 💖
You’re welcome! I’m so glad you all enjoyed the soup!
