Instant Loaded Baked Potato Soup Recipe
One of the first times I had Potato Soup was in high school. I was sick, and my best friend wanted to make me feel better, and she knew I loved Baked Potatoes, so she came over and made me Homemade Potato Soup. I instantly fell in love with it, and have made it myself, with a few tweaks, dozens of times. Since my life got busier -with work, then kids, I started making Crockpot Potato Soup. The taste was just as awesome, just a huge time saver on busy nights. Now that my kids are older, the mornings are more hectic, and the addition of an Instant Pot has allowed me to tweak the recipe again to work in this fabulous device! I hope your family will enjoy this recipe as much as mine does!
