I love baked potatoes. One of my favorite dinners is having a baked potato party. Everyone starts with a blank canvas, their potato, and goes down the assembly line and adds as many or as few toppings as they desire. This is a complete win win situation for all family members, finally a meal we can all agree upon! This got me thinking, I bet I could create an equally yummy soup and sneak some wholesome veggies into my kids’ growing little bodies. Of course, I added bacon. That to me, is this soup’s secret weapon. One taste and I think you too will be hooked. Plus, I love not having to bake potatoes in the oven on hot summer days while still feeding my craving.
