So weather is cooling off some and whats better then a nice warm hearty soup? I made an AMAZING loaded baked potato soup and best thing is it takes the same amount of time and a bit LESS effort then making homemade mashed potatos.
3-4 lbs potatos
1 small onion
chop potatos to good size bites/chunks dice up onions put all in good size soup/stock pot cover with JUST ENOUGH water to cook the potatos (like barely go to top of potatos but don't fully submerge them) then "liberally" salt and pepper to your liking. Cook until potatos are fork tender.
1/2 stick butter
1 small (8oz) container sour cream
1 small container cream cheese (the chive and onion flavor works AWESOME)
1 can cream soup (generally cream of chicken but cream of mushroom or celery would work depending on your taste)
Just stir the previous ingredients in and you are done with the soup.
It will be a thicker chowder type consistancy if you want it thinner feel free to add some milk or heavy cream.
Serve into bowls and top with what you like personal preferance is shredded cheddar chopped scallions (green onions) and chopped bacon YUMM!
This time I expected to share some soup with Jinx so I cut the onion way back and used regular cream cheese so she could have some.
Tonight we curled up on the couch to watch a movie with a bowl of soup for me for dinner and a small bowl (complete with cheese and bacon) for Jinx for a snack. In fairness she hasn't been eating lately because of a bad run in with pano and just now getting her appetite back she ate her dinner so figured a bit of spoiling was warranted.. of course everyone knows nothing fixes you up like homemade soup from mom
And of course nothing is complete without pictures first one was with my camera second one of Jinxs bowl is a bad picture taken on my phone but couldn't leave her out of the thread lol.
