20-Minute Baked Potato Soup Recipe Is a Bowl of Comfort (6 Ingredients)

Nothing comforts you like a creamy bowl of potato soup. I'll bet you know exactly what I'm talking about! But sometimes you want a shortcut recipe to speed up the cooking process. This fast and easy potato soup recipe uses mashed potatoes, so no peeling and boiling fresh potatoes. (Yes, fresh is best but sometimes quick is what you need.)

This creamy baked potato soup recipe is ready in about 20 minutes, and is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Dinner is served, simply and deliciously. Top a steaming hot bowl of this potato soup with chopped green onions, crumbled crisp bacon and more grated cheddar cheese. You could even add a dollop of sour cream. This recipe can easily be doubled.
