Baked potato soup is a super satisfying recipe after a long day, and it’s very easy to prepare! Simply add everything to your slow cooker, and when it’s done, blend it and add toppings! You’ll also find options below to turn this into a dairy free, Whole30 baked potato soup!
Dietary/Lifestyle Options for baked potato soup
This soup is gluten free and paleo with dairy free and Whole30 options. For a gluten free versions, simply make it as is. However, if you need to omit the dairy for dietary needs or if you’re on a Whole30, just omit the cheese and sour cream. Instead, mix in nutritional yeast when you serve it, to taste, for a cheesy flavor! You could also do a dairy free sour cream!
Whole30 compatible bacon
If you need a sugar free, Whole30 bacon, check out Naked Bacon! Use code THECLEANHAPPYLIFE to get a free pack of bacon with your order! Naked Bacon has such clean products, they’re my favorite Whole30 compatible bacon. They raise their pigs humanely, and treat them well.
Their bacon comes in different varieties, including chipotle and jalapeno! Check out their sausage links too, they’re so yummy! It’s so great to have clean breakfast options available!
Other good options are Whole30 approved bacon from Applegate. You can also check out local farm shares or CSA options. I recently got my first pig share and absolutely love it, I know how fresh the meat is and how well cared for the animal was. You’re also supporting local farmers this way, which is a wonderful way to use your money if at all possible.
Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Did you like this? Check out my other soup recipes! Paleo beef stew made in the crock pot is a comfort food classic! Perfect for cold fall or winter days. Most beef stews contain gluten, but the paleo beef stew is Whole30 compatible and paleo friendly, so no gluten there!
Another favorite is Angel’s Soup. Angel’s Soup is made in the Instant Pot! It’s also very easy and tasty! It has coconut milk, which surprises some people. They think coconut milk in soup must make it coconutty or too sweet for a savory soup. However, it’s just the perfect balance, and I now prefer coconut milk in my soups over dairy milk!
Instant Pot Variation
Prefer to make baked potato soup even quicker? Put the broth, potatoes, onions, and salt in the instant pot. Using the soup setting, cook for 3 minutes. When done, blend and add toppings as normal. It’s a great option for when you forgot to set the slow cooker on time, or you just need a faster version! Still just as delicious!
Do you NEED organic veggies?
If you’re doing paleo or Whole30, you don’t need to also buy organic! It’s great if you can, but not necessary to be compliant. When shopping, I rely on the dirty dozen and the clean fifteen lists. Not sure what those are? Check out this blog post I wrote on it.
Potatoes frequently make the list for the dirtiest produce, sadly. However, because the conventional versions are so cheap and I’m on a budget, I buy them conventional and am sure to peel them! When I do buy organic potatoes, I don’t bother to peel them. So on your journey to clean eating, buy what you can organic and don’t worry about the rest! You can absolutely buy conventional produce and this will still be paleo and Whole30 if you do the dairy free option!
