Hearty Loaded Potato Soup

Yes, yes it’s soup again! I swear I cook other things besides soup. It’s just been so rainy, that an easy, one-pot soup just keeps hitting the spot. Plus, this recipe has cheese and bacon. Need I say more? This pot did not last long and is hearty, warm, and delicious.

    1. OH great question! Thanks for asking 🙂

      I seem to not be able to modify recipes. So a lot of times I’ll look up a few recipes for the same thing, get a base idea, and then go adapt it to what we have in our kitchen.
