I have to admit that I did not make the baked potatoes, but instead cooked a potato and added some feta and cream cheese to the soup. I also peeled my potato, as I don't really enjoy potato skins in most dishes. I saved some of the green onion to put on top, omitted the bacon, and added some shredded cheddar cheese as a garnish. I'm not sure that I like the feta in this - did not dislike it, just not decided. But we finished our soup with no problems - I made half the recipe aned had no leftovers.
Used some of your Loaded Baked Potatoes for this recipe, & the soup was just as wonderful as were the baked potatoes the night before! We particularly liked that the soup included the potato skins as well! A very satisfying potato soup that I'd be happy to make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

We enjoyed Teresa's yummy Ww Loaded Baked Potatoes last night so that I could make this soup tonight. And WOW! I'm going to be making both these recipes often. :) As I added the loaded baked potatoes into the pot, I thought "this had better be good or I'm going to regret not eating these!" No regrets. With Ww Loaded Baked Potatoes as an ingredient, seriously, how could it be otherwise? In making this soup, I opted for using unsalted butter (my preference in cooking) and used fresh thyme. My only additions were that I doubled the garlic and added 2 leeks (we love the blend of flavour from onion, garlic and leeks together) but otherwise I made this exactly to the recipe. I've always enjoyed a good potato and leek soup and this is my new potato and leek recipe par excellence. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Teresa! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
A great tasting soup for lunch today. Great flavoring, and taste. Left out the salt though. A great compliment to lunch today. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
This is a lovely soup...it has a nice tang from the feta and a very satisfying combination of the flavors of potato, celery and bacon. It is not as thick as I would have expected but it is delicious.
