Pin a Day: Fully Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Friday was a stormy, wet and cooler day in Austin.  It was the perfect day for soup.  I decided to try this recipe for Fully Loaded Baked Potato Soup.   I loved that it was a healthy recipe from Hungry Girl and that it was fairly quick to make.  Mike chopped up an onion while I cooked and mashed up the potato.  Next, I cooked my garlic and onion in a little bit of olive oil.  I added in my chicken broth and milk.  Then, I added in the flour, whisking it until it completely dissolved.  Finally, I added in the potato and all remaining ingredients.  I brought it to a boil and let it simmer for a few minutes.  We topped it with bacon and cheese and served with salad and pretzel rolls.  I wanted to love this soup, but it was only okay. It definitely didn't compare to my favorite, Houlihan's baked potato soup.  So, I will be heading back to Pinterest for a healthy, fast, and tasty potato soup recipe.
