Can You Freeze Instant Pot 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.

The Best Loaded Potato Soup

[…] This easy loaded potato soup is truly a breeze to make. I have made it on the stove top for years and even did it in the slow cooker. I prefer stove top but I will give you the option to make it either way. Check out this Instant Pot potato soup!  […]

Meh, taste is good but cooking directions are off. Frying the bacon and onions in the IP only dirties one pot and adds flavor to the soup. Drain greese and deglaze with chicken broth before adding potatoes. Personally I think it’s too much liquid if you like thick soup so I cut that down. I also thought a full tbs of onion and garlic is way too much. Using a little more fresh onion and some fresh garlic instead gives a much better flavor.
