Loaded Potato Soup

We’ve been making a lot of soup and grilled cheese this winter. It’s quick and relatively healthy, and just what we need on a cold winter’s day. One of my son’s favorites is this loaded potato soup; it’s the only soup he will eat his entire first bowl and get seconds before he starts dipping his grilled cheese. It is super easy to make, especially if you’ve got some canned potatoes on hand!

1 quart  canned or mashed potatoes

3 cups milk

1 cup grated cheese, cheddar or smokey cheddar

3-4 rashers bacon, chopped

Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and other desired seasonings

Blend together potatoes and milk and heat until consistent texture. Add cheese and melt into soup. Add milk to create desired consistency. Serve and sprinkle bacon on top!
