Had baked potatoes on the menu. Used leftovers for potato salad and sometimes had more than needed. An employee suggested make loaded soup because you were known for your soup specials and that how it started.

This potato soup is very tasty. It's thick, creamy, cheesy, and a bit smoky from the crumbled bacon. There always seems to be extra baked potatoes and this is a tasty recipe to reinvent them. It's so good, you may find yourself always baking extra potatoes to whip up a batch. Comforting on a cold evening. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
