This ultimate comfort food transforms the flavors of a loaded baked potato into a rich, creamy soup. Swanson® broth provides the perfect savory base that’s enhanced by garlic, cheese and bacon (you can also swap leftover ham for the bacon!). And, if you really want to treat yourself, serve it in a bread bowl, restaurant-style!

Cook the bacon in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat until crisp, stirring often. Remove the bacon from the saucepan and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings.
Add the potatoes and chopped onion to the saucepan and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the flour and garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.
Stir in the broth and cook until the mixture boils and thickens. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in half the bacon and half the cheese. Stir in the half and half and cook until hot. Season to taste. Top with the remaining bacon, remaining cheese and the green onions.
Easy to make, turned out great
I made this twice already. It's really fast if you can prep the ingredients the day before. I used slightly less onion and it turned out great. I would recommend giving it a try.
