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!

Tips for success/variations: 

To make this delicious instant pot baked potato soup you only need a few ingredients. Here are a few other ideas that will give it a boost of goodness. 

  • Be sure to use fresh chicken broth or the best you can buy from the grocery store. It will make a world of difference. 
  • Top your bowl of potato soup with a dollop of sour cream, some sliced green onions, and some crunchy pumpkin seeds or chopped bacon for a dazzling presentation. 
  • If you’re out of heavy cream, you can use softened cream cheese instead to provide that delicious creaminess.

How to serve:

This electric pressure cooker meal doesn’t need anything else, but if you want to pair it with a side dish, here are some great ideas: Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Bacon, Roasted Green Beans, or Sheet Pan Roasted Broccoli

Bread goes great with soup and these are some great options: Angel Biscuits, Homemade Cornbread, or Sprite Biscuits.

How to store:

You can store leftover instant pot potato soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. 

To reheat, put the soup in a pot and gently bring it to a simmer until it’s hot enough to eat. You might want to put a little water in the soup to thin it out a bit since it will become thicker in the fridge.

You can also reheat it in the microwave. Be sure to place a paper towel or a microwave lid on the bowl so it doesn’t splatter and make a mess of your microwave. 

This soup doesn’t freeze well because the potatoes will fall apart and the cream may crystallize and won’t reheat well.

FAQs: 

Can I make this loaded potato soup dairy-free? 

Yes, you can make this soup dairy-free. It’s easy to do this. All you need to do is refrain from adding any cream, cheese, or cream of chicken soup. It won’t be as thick without these additions but it will still taste great!

How can I make this potato soup recipe in a slow cooker? 

To make this soup in a crockpot, just all the ingredients, cover with the lid and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. 

How do I spice up bland potato soup? 

Potatoes don’t have a lot of flavor on their own. They rely on other, bolder ingredients, to give them flavor. One of the best flavor enhancers for potatoes is salt. You may also use bay leaves, onions, garlic, cracked black pepper, thyme, rosemary, and other herbs.
