Baked Potato Soup Recipe + Shopping Made Easier

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Food Lion. All opinions are 100% mine.

During the fall and winter, my family cannot get enough comfort food. From hearty soups, stews and casseroles to hot drinks to warm your bones, we crave recipes that are hot and filling. This Baked Potato Soup Recipe definitely fits the bill. It’s made with simple ingredients you probably have on hand already, and if you don’t, planning your shopping list is super easy with the Food Lion mobile app.

Baked Potato Soup Recipe

The leaves on the trees are finally starting to turn colors now, so it’s my favorite time of year. As I cook, I look out the kitchen window to see trees with spots of red, orange and yellow. When the wind blows, they go flying through the air. What could be better on days like these than a bowl of steaming hot soup to warm you up when you’ve been outside in the chilly weather?

Even as a kid, I loved soup. Unfortunately, that trait hasn’t been passed down to my son. In fact, the only soup he’ll eat is this potato soup. There’s something about the cheesy, starchy, rich flavor that no one can resist!

Now, I do have to warn you that this soup cooks up super thick. If you like a thinner potato soup, I’d add about 2 more cups of milk. Alternatively, you can add a little milk whenever you warm up your portion (because there will be plenty of leftovers — this makes a huge batch).

Want to make shopping for the ingredients for this soup super simple? Use the Food Lion mobile app to add the ingredients! Creating your shopping list has never been easier. Trust me, when I try to do it myself, it’s usually a disaster. I always forget something. But you can browse the weekly flyer, delicious recipes, and the coupons to add items to your shopping list. You can also add items manually.

It saves so much time because you’ll also find the aisle number where the product is located in the store. And… bonus… I don’t even have to remember to bring my MVP card because it’s saved right there in the app! I just scan my phone at the register to get the savings.
