Here's a recipe I created as an alternative to plain potato soup. Hearty and comforting, it disappears quickly when I serve it to my family on chilly evenings. Team it with bread and a salad, and you have a complete meal.

I love this recipe. I changed a few things to make it my own. I add carrots and subsituted some milk for whipping cream. It was nice and creamy, perfect consistancy and flavor. My new favorite comfort food! My family loved it! I can't wait to make it again.
