Loaded Potato Soup

by Katie on January 6, 2012

Loaded Potatoes. They rank pretty high up on my list of favorite foods. I like them fully loaded with cheese, bacon, sour cream…just filled with calories!

Ranking a close second behind them is wonderful, also calorie laden, loaded potato soup.

I guess I kinda have a thing for calories. My heart says no, but my mind says yes. Or would it be the other way around? Either way, it’s a quite a conundrum to be in.

While I’ve given up starchy foods for a while, heaven help me, I know everyone hasn’t.

So, I’ve saved this wonderful soup just for all of you folks who aren’t starting the new year by living on brussels sprouts, green tea, and lean meat! Enjoy!
