This soup was very good! My husband and I both enjoyed it! The first time I made it, I didn't have any leftover mashed potatoes, so I just cooked some up really fast. I also only used 3 pieces of bacon instead of the 8 the recipe calls for.

This is SO good! I am a soup lover and always trying to find a good one. This is a keeper! I used a bit of left over ham and is was delish!

This recipe is quick and easy and has a really good taste. Instead of cooking bacon I use pre-cooked real bacon pieces which lessens the preparation time. I have also used ham pieces left over from a ham this makes this a tasty soup.
