EXCELLENT!!! This is the best soup I have ever made. If you like cream of potato soup then you will love this. I doubled the recipe to serve at a Halloween party and did NOT add the margarine. You do not need that at all so save yourself the extra fat/calories and you won't have that grease sitting on top of it when it seperates. Thanks so much for the recipe...I will make again and again. :o)-27 Oct 2003

Hi! I am Rebecca. I like this recipe. When I was making this, I had a bad feeling that I might make it wrong, or it wouldn't taste good. But at the end, I tasted it, and it was so good! But I cut the bacon too big, and my mom said the onions were too big. My brothers liked it. For a side dish, we had corn bread. My family liked it. But I loved it!-02 Nov 2008


Unless you live alone, or you're on a 1,000 calorie a day diet, just double this recipe, it's that good. I've shared some with friends and family, and everyone thinks this is my best effort yet.The only thing I changed was to add a can of regular corn as well as he cream style corn, and I fried the bacon crispy before adding the onions.You'll love this soup!!-26 Jan 2003

Easy Cheesy Potato Bacon Soup

We’re slowly approaching the end of soup season, but before we pack away our sweaters and say goodbye to the cozy winter evenings, there’s one more soup recipe I want you to try, potato bacon soup.

This soup is total comfort food. It’s rich and cheesy and SO easy to make. And it should be added to your soup rotation immediately.

Why This Soup Works

It’s double thickened: This soup is thickened twice, once with potatoes, by smashing and mixing some of them into the soup and then again by adding a thick and creamy cheese sauce.
Cheese sauce: Speaking of that cheese sauce. This one is quick to make with butter, flour, milk and cheese. When stirred into the soup, it adds a cheesy, creamy richness that is completely irresistible.
It’s loaded with bacon: We’ll use about 12 ounces of bacon in this recipe. That’s enough to ensure that there’s bacon in every single bite.

No Leftover Baked Potatoes? No Problem!

If you didn’t bake up any potatoes recently and you are craving this soup (which I do a lot), here is a faster method for preparing your potatoes:

  1. First, scrub the potatoes, but leave the skins on.
  2. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise (from end to end). Then cut the halves again lengthwise so you have 4 long quarters. Then slice those the opposite direction into lots of 1/4 inch slices. It should give you thin triangle slices of potato.
  3. Boil the potato slices until cooked but not soft or mushy. I just keep testing it with a fork. Drain and set aside until you are ready to add them to the soup.

Random.. but funny..

I just had to share this story… but while I was working on making this soup that you see in the picture, my sweet husband got the niche to start baking! He does this sometimes… which I cant complain because look what he decided to make!

Homemade Doughnuts!! talking about comfort food.. :0 Just so you know he does not Decide to cook very often but he does tempt to and he does pretty good! I will say that I am surprised that my Potato Soup didn’t get scorched with me trying to walk him through some of the dough making process! but in the end we had both Potato soup and Doughnuts for dessert… and 10 more extra Pounds!

Slow Cooker Instructions

My personal preference is I, 99.9% of the time, make thicker soups and chowders on the stovetop as slow cookers do not really allow for moisture to evaporate so it can be tough to get soups to truly thicken.

  1. To a 6-qrt slow cooker add the potatoes, onions, carrots, stock, and seasonings.
  2. Cover and cook on high heat for 3-4 hours or 7-8 hours*.
  3. 30-45 minutes before the soup is done, add in the beurre manié (stir gently) and the slurry. Stir, replace the lid.
  4. Optional, prop the lid open to help with moisture evaporation. Using things like skewers or chopsticks between the lid and the slow cooker helps.

*The cooking time will depend on how thick/big your potatoes are cut

This easy Potato Soup with Bacon is a family favorite

You can use frozen or canned corn for this recipe. Just use what you have at home! And sometimes I peel the potatoes and sometimes I don’t, it tastes delicious either way. My family loves this bacon potato soup and I love it too because it’s so easy and quick to make.

More in the mood for a festive soup? Have a look at my Chestnut Soup Recipe which makes a great appetizer for your Christmas dinner with the family.

Tools used for making this Potato Bacon Soup Recipe

Immersion Blender: I love my hand blender! It’s great for making soups. You can blend right in the pot and it’s easy to clean and doesn’t need much space in my kitchen.
Stockpot: You need a large enough stock pot for this recipe. I like to use a pot like this one because you don’t make a mess when you puree the soup with the immersion blender in the pot.

Cheesy Potato Soup Recipe With Ham And Bacon


  • 1 package of bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 2 1/2 pounds Idaho potatoes
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour (we use gluten free)
  • 2 cups milk

How To Make Easy Cheesy Potato Soup:

Begin by cutting your bacon into small pieces and cooking over medium heat until thoroughly cooked. Add the diced ham to the bacon pieces and heat through. Remove the bacon and ham from the pan and set aside.

While the bacon is cooking dice your potatoes into bite sized pieces. After the bacon and ham have been removed from the pan begin cooking the potatoes in the same pan, removing all but a small amount of the bacon grease to cook the potatoes in. Cook the potatoes until they are not quite tender. Remove and set aside.

Saute the onions in the same pan that the bacon and potatoes were cooked in. Combine the bacon, ham, potatoes, and onion in a large stock pot.

Pour the chicken broth over the potato mixture and turn on to simmer.

In another pot melt the butter. Once the butter is melted at the flour and stir until smooth to begin creating the cheese sauce for the soup.

After the flour has been stirred in completely add the milk, cream cheese, and sharp cheddar.

Cook the cheese and milk mixture over low heat, stirring regularly until cheese has melted completely and the mixture is smooth.

Add the cheese sauce to the potato and broth mixture and stir well. Keep on low heat until ready to serve.

You can add a sprinkle of shredded cheese to the top or simply serve with a piece of homemade bread. I hope you enjoy this Easy Cheesy Potato Soup Recipe as much as my family does. It is so rich and filling- perfect for the cold weather.

Potato Hack: Chop your potatoes in smaller pieces for shorter cooking time.

I get asked a lot if it ok to freeze the leftovers.

Can you freeze potato soup?

You can freeze potato soup but I wouldn’t recommend it because the potato chucks end up rather mushy and it will separate out a bit. If that doesn’t bother you and you are going to freeze it anyway, be sure to wait for the soup to cool before you put the lid on and stick it in the freezer. Also, since liquids expand as they freeze, be sure to leave an 1/2 inch to an 1 inch worth of space under the lid.

Can This Cheesy Potato Chicken Soup Be Made Without an Instant Pot?

  • Garnish with little green onions, bacon or additional cheese.
  • It takes longer to peel the potatoes than to cook the soup if you cook it in the instant pot, so just try it and you will be glad you did.

Well, whatever the case, it is time to make some of this amazing cheesy potato chicken instant pot soup. The weather is still a little cool and perfect for a nice bowl of soup. Add some bacon to the top or just dip some bread in it. One of my sons ate a few crackers with his (one package).

Another side dish that would be good with this is some cornbread. You can try our fluffy cornbread recipe that I posted a few weeks ago. It is our favorite go to recipe for cornbread. I would have loved a slice of home made bread, but I didn’t get around to making it.

What are you thinking about making for your Valentine’s Dinner? It is in a few days. Something simple or something hard. I guess I better get figuring it out soon. Enjoy your Cheesy Potato Chicken Instant Pot Soup.
