"I made this today and used 4 large new potatoes with skins on instead, added bacon grease to the saute, and added crumbled bacon to the garnish. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I did not let it cool at all and used an emersion blender instead. I think I used more salt to taste than the recipe called for. Was able to eat right away. Took a total of a half hour and was delicious!"

"This was super easy to make, especially with an immersion blender, and delicious! I sprinkled a little bit of paprika in, but did not try the sour cream. It is creamy enough without it."

"Took way too much time b/c you have to let the soup cool to room temperature. I used my food processor instead of a blender. Is average on taste."
