Baked Potato & Leek Soup With Cheddar & Bacon

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Little Bee

This soup is fantastic! Think of a loaded baked potato with butter, sour cream, onion, cheese, and bacon. Now picture it as a creamy bowl of delicious soup. Yum! Potatoes are used skin and all so be sure to scrub them well.

I used the ingredients of this recipe to make a soup but couldn't be bthered baking the potatoes first so just made the regular way, it was a lovely smooth creamy tasty soup that was enjoyed by the whole family...I think there are a few steps of the recipe missing though so I just made as I do regular soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Scrub the potatoes, pat dry, and pierce several times with a fork. Set them directly on the oven rack and bake until very tender, about 1 hour. Let cool completely on a cooling rack.
  2. *Cook's Note: Sharp cheese works well in this soup because it melts smoothly. Extra sharp will give you a more pronounced flavor but because of the lower moisture content, the soup will be less smooth.
