Loaded Baked Potato Soup
This recipe would be great to use up leftover baked potatoes. Just be sure to scoop out the pulp while the potatoes are still warm otherwise it makes it a bit more difficult.
I am funny about my potato chunks in potato soup, sometimes they are too big and sometimes you hardly know you are getting potato so I love that this recipes doesn’t use chunks. However you may need to mash up the inside of the potato a little depending on how you scoop it out.
