Baked Potato Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This tastes like a baked potato and sour cream. It is so yummy on a cool night. You'll make it often once you have tried it. It is good served with a Crusty Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches.

Super Easy! Super Tasty! The great thing about this recipe is that I saved the skins from the potato and used them the next with the remaining bacon, cheddar and sour cream for potatos skins. Two meals in one! Excellent taste... I did add a bit more salt and pepper.

  5. Discard all but about 1/2 teaspoons drippings in pan.
