Home-Style Potato Soup Recipe

I experimented with our family soup recipe until I came up wit this version. The mashed potato flakes provide a flavorful thickening agent, and the bacon adds color and lots of flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 18, 2014

"This is a good basic potato soup. Next time I will add bacon to the soup and a little more cheese. I liked this, too, because it wasn't thickened with flour. I have celiac disease so thickening the soup with mashed potato flakes is brilliant!"
