Mimi's Loaded Potato Soup for 1 or 2

Karla Harkins


I was hungry for potato soup and I didn't have a recipe that didn't make gallons so I just put some stuff together and it came out really good! A lot better than the packet I got from the store to try, that was really, really NOT good.

How to Make Mimi's Loaded Potato Soup for 1 or 2


  1. Put chicken stock base in a 2 cup microwave safe measuring cup and microwave on high for 3 minutes, or until boiling.
  2. While stock is boiling cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces and put the potatoes, chopped onion,celery flakes and in a saucepan. Pour boiling stock over just until it barely reaches the tops of the potatoes. Boil over medium heat until potatoes are just barely fork tender. Don't get too soft or the potatoes will disappear as the soup is stirred.
  3. Remove potatoes from heat and put grated cheddar cheese and cream cheese on top of the potatoes. Let the heat soften enough so that it can be stirred into the potates with out mashing the potatoes. Add 1/2 stick butter and salt, pepper and granulated garlic to taste. Stir in well.
  4. Pour into bowls in individual servings and top with remaining bacon crumbles, grated cheddar cheese,salt, pepper and sour cream on top if desired. Serve hot.
