Delicious!! My whole family loved it!!
Substituted ham for bacon. Was good that way. Haven't tried it with bacon yet.
This is the BEST potato soup ever!!!
I made this soup to feed the 12 people in our office for lunch one day (doubled the recipe). It very quickly disappeared and I regularly have request to fix it over and over. I add garlic and onion powder for extra flavor.
Hubby loved it! Will definitely make again:)
