Individual Loaded Baked Potato Soup

 

We all have fond memories of our childhood.  I remember the first Christmas that Santa brought me a bicycle or random birthday parties with great friends. I have many memories of meals with my whole family, which are perhaps my favorite memories.  Many of my family members live far away or have passed, so the simple memories of childhood meals spent around a table together are very precious.

And that may be one of the most perfect things about meals, and the recipes to fix those meals, for all of us.  Because a great meal, spent with family and friends, can trigger those great memories. And even better, you can build new memories with your family by gathering around the table and sharing new moments, with perhaps an old recipe.

So for me, meal time meant a time of gathering with my parents and siblings.  My parents provided a great life for us by working hard, and mealtime was usually a time of laughing  and interacting. There was always some variation of potatoes involved with every meal. Which meant we often had potato soup.  Which brings us to this recipe and one that you’ll surely love.

Because no collection of recipes would be complete without a great potato soup recipe, this may be the one you always turn to.  The Individual Microwave Loaded Potato Soup in a Mug recipe is so good, you’ll enjoy both preparing the meal and eating it as well!
