ed's Story

Had baked potatos on menu used leftovers for potato salad sometimes had more then needed an employee suggested make loaded soup because you were known for you soup specials and that how it started.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a really tasty soup. I love cheese and bacon so it was an immediate magnet for me and I sure wasn't disappointed!

I chose to leave the skins on the potatoes when I cut them up, and really liked the end result. When my husband tried the soup, though, he thought he might like it better without the skins.  This is a matter of taste, so feel free to experiment and make it your own.

This sounds good but I have one question: What is cheese sauce?

Would suggest using something other than cheese sauce. A medium cheddar perhaps.

Looks like Ed hasn't been around in almost 4 years to answer these questions, so thank you Jan and others for stepping in.

Would like to know how much sodium is in this. I love a good potato soup, but have been avoiding bacon, cheese due to the sodium!!
