Loaded Mashed Potato Soup I Mommy Hates Cooking

A tried and true recipe that I’ve fallen in love with over the years is this Loaded Mashed Potato Soup.  It’s certainly gotten chilly here and soup has been a regular on our menu.  I love how warm and delicious this soup is, plus it’s so easy to make.

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving?  This is a great recipe to use leftover mashed potatoes for too!  So keep that in mind as you enjoy those delicious Thanksgiving meals!

I also love that this recipe includes dill which is one of my favorite ingredients.  I’m bound to love anything that involves dill!  I’m also bound to overload it with dill because I just can’t get enough.  I don’t know why either, I’ve loved it since I was a kid.  Did you ever drink pickle juice?  I’ll admit, I did!  Now it just grosses me out but there was a time when I thought it was delicious.

We love to top this soup with all the toppings you would typically put on a baked potato, it just makes it that much more of a comfort meal.  It also happens to be my son’s favorite!

I spotted this recipe over on Cooking Light and it was so good it had to be shared!  I originally shared this a few years back but it’s so good it deserved to be shared again.

    I made this a few nights ago and it was/is wonderful. I would have never thought to use leftover mashed potatoes. I had some leftover cheesy scalloped potatoes and added some of those in also. I smooshed them up a bit to overall consistency was smooth. Good recipe. I enjoy your site.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I had the same thought when I first made it too, that I never thought to use mashed potatoes! Those scalloped potatoes sound great in it!
