Loaded Baked Potato Soup (Gluten Free)
This soup is so easy to make and yet so delicious. You can very easily whip up a bowl for lunch or dinner when you are in a big hurry. Leftovers of this soup reheat beautifully for lunch or dinner the next day. Just save some of the toppings for sprinkling or spooning on the next day. I really love this soup. As a celiac I often eat soup for lunch. This is one of my favourite soups. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

MY PRIVATE NOTES
RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

Love this soup. So rich. I made it on the stove top by boiling my potatoes then adding the broth, milk, and about a tablespoon of minced red onions. I also used leftover Thanksgiving ham (minced) in place of bacon just because that's what I had on hand. Don't skip on that sour cream dollop before serving!
Took much longer to cook! I had to return it to my 1000-watt microwave for at least three extra 6-minute cycles before the potatoes were tender enough to mash. When we finally sat down at the table everyone added salt & pepper because the taste was too bland. It was more palatable the second day but everyone voted this one is not a "keeper".
I found this while looking for gluten free recipies for my sister who was just diagnosed with celiacs. It looked so good I made it for my husband and 3 yr old daughter. We loved it!!! Three weeks later my daughter was thinking of what she wanted to eat and after thinking a few min. asked for "play dough" soup. I asked her if she meant potato soup and she said yes. We have since renamed it play dough soup for something fun. It is one of a few recipes that she digs into and eats till it is gone!! Thanks so much for this GlutenFreeGirl. It is the best!!!
The ingredients were great together. I must say I didn't completely follow your directions. I ended up peeling and dicing the potatoes, and then boiling them in the chicken broth. I then scooped about 1/2 of the potatoes out and blended them with milk, added them back in with the broth and then continued as normal, but it was delicious! Tasted better the next day.
