Weeknight Dinners: Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Potato or Potatoe?  I've never really known the answer to that, but I'll tell you the one thing I know for sure and that is that potatoes are awesome!  I like them baked, fried, mashed, or any way in between.  Who's with me? 

Loaded, you say?  Yep.  Carbs are a weakness of mine especially in the winter.  There's something about cold weather that makes you want to eat a big plate of pasta or in this case, a big bowl of potato soup!

You are going to LOVE today's recipe!  With my crazy potato obsession, I've tried numerous potato soup recipes and I can confidently tell you this one is the BEST!

Run, don't walk and get these ingredients.  Your family will thank you!
