STONEGABLE LOADED BAKED POTATO SOUP
10 baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
3 ribs celery, diced
2/3 cup grated carrots
8 green onions, sliced (use green parts too)
1 cup flour
12 cups milk
2 lbs thick sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
3-4 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese (I use 4)
16 oz. plain greek yogurt
salt
pepper
freshly grated nutmeg, a couple of good grates~ dash
6 hard boiled eggs, cooled, peeled and chopped in medium pieces
Bake potatoes. Cool, peel and cut into medium size chunks.
In a large stock pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add celery and carrots and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add green onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
Add 1 cup of flour and stir. Cook and stir for 4 minutes. Add milk and whisk. Cook, stirring occasionally until it bubbles. Watch the pot so you do not scorch the milk. Add potatoes and bacon. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Add cheese, greek yogurt, salt, pepper and nutmeg. When cheese melts and greek yogurt is incorporated add hard boiled eggs.  If the soup is too thick more milk can be added. We love it thick!!!!!
Garnish and serve.
Sprinkle the following over soup:
crumbled bacon
chopped hard boiled eggs
chives and puffed pastry crouton leaves

    Yum! This looks delicious, Auntie Yvonne! :) I have never thought to put Greek Yogurt in the soup before, but I’m sure that must give it a creamy texture. I think I’ll try this soon!

    I love how thick you made your soup. It looks so lucious and would go with the snow we had yesterday! I always crave soups in cold weather and it is here. I would love a bowl to sit down to right now.

    Hi Yvonne, I’ve just become your latest follower. Your soup looks delicious, and is so elegantly presented. Those puff pastry leaves are truly inspired. I’ve made leaf-shaped croutons for soup at Thanksgiving, but I like this idea so much better. And to think just yesterday I was at Williams-Sonoma, saw these little cutters, and passed them by. Well, I’m going to have to go back!

    COngratulations Yvonne, Laura and Andrea are doing a fabulous job with Metis Linens.
    The potato soups looks wonderful, my mouth is watering. And those puff croutons again! Only you can make two rows of potatoes looks beautiful!
    Have a good day,

    Lucky you, winning that fabulous basket of goodies! Your potato soup looks super delish – will have to try that recipe soon.

    I wanted to tell you that I made your recipe for Pumpkin Bread Pudding and took it to work as it was my turn to bring something for coffee break. I served it in my new leaf bowls (similar to yours) with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle and a toasted pecan on top. It was a BIG HIT! Two of the fellows there had second helpings! Keep up the great recipe ideas and pics!

    I’ve had baked potato soup before but it was nothing like YOURS!! A feast for the eyes & the tummy! I’ll be sure to try it when I have friends & family to share it with. Thanks for both the link to Maryann’s as well as your gussied-up version.

    To answer your question…yes, those witch shoes WERE mine, but as soon as DGD, Ms. C. spotted them, she fell in love & they now reside at her house. LOL

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend. I’m off to watch the grandkidlets parade around their school in their costumes this morning. So fun!

    Yvonne,
    I love homemade potato soup! With our diet, this may be just ‘the fix’ I can enjoy. Instead of heavy cream you used yougart. Sounds perfect! I enjoy the thicker soups and put vegetables in everywhere I can. It’s much cooler on the prairies and this comes in the fullness of time of the Season!Thank you for an all inspiring post!
    Fondly,
    Pat

    I’ve never met a SG soup I didn’t love. I’ll give this one a try this weekend. The weather here has gone from cool to cold so potato soup will hit the spot after football this weekend.

    Congrats on your win, Yvonne. It’s Manifique!

    My son recently had “loaded baked potato soup” at a local restaurant and he really enjoyed it, so I’m happy you posted your recipe. I can’t wait to give it a try (it’s going into my StoneGable file :) ).

    This looks so good. My two favorite soups are corn chowder in the summer and potato soup -ANYTIME. I can’t wait to try it-would love to be sitting in your beautiful kitchen having a bowl . :) Kathy

    I love loaded baked potatoes so I’m sure I’d love this soup! I made our first soup of the season recently…one of our favorites…Chicken Tortilla Soup which I shared recently on my blog. You can’t mess it up….it turns out perfect every time. Another soup we love is what I call Hamburger Soup…made that too! I’ll be sharing that recipe soon as well.

    Your presentation is gorgeous….as always!

    This looks beautiful and I bet it is really delicious. I’m not a soup maker but I would love to try this.
    How many would the recipe serve in an average soup bowl size? (I’d probably want to eat a mixing bowl full).
    Could you please e-mail me the answer, I wish you had that at the end here where one could check to have
    an email telling you someone answered your comment. Not sure how they do that. :-)
