You could try and make this Baked Potato Soup with Bacon more healthy by cutting some of the fat out of it. You could go about doing this by using some yogurt instead of sour cream, or a lower fat milk or plant based milk, like almond, coconut, soy or rice milk. This is probably what I would use, since I just prefer those things over the sour cream and milk. So you could really tweak this recipe to your tastes and preferences if you like, even add some different spices. Otherwise, it is a wonderful recipe as is, with all of the fat in it. It would totally be the perfect fall or winter time soup that will give you some sustenance to keep you warm throughout the day. Awesome to bring to a potluck or make for a dinner you are hosting too as a starter, or even as a main course! Try this soup this fall when things start to get a bit more chilly.
