Can You Freeze Loaded Potato Soup
One question I get asked a lot is can you freeze potato soup. The answer is, yes, but it will change the texture of the soup over time. The longer potatoes set in the broth and cook the softer they become. When you freeze and then turn around and warm it back up, it can make the potatoes break down, even more, turning into more of a mashed potato texture over formed pieces. While the texture is a bit different, you will find it still offers a pleasant taste and can be done. I just would recommend serving fresh loaded potato soup to guests and then if you do freeze and reheat eat yourself for lunches and dinners.
A super easy soup recipe that is great for a weeknight meal, game day soup, or even to gift to loved ones who are sick or recovering from say a surgery. I haven’t come across someone who hasn’t enjoyed a big bowl of this soup.
