Parmesan Potato Soup Recipe

Meet the Cook: Even my husband, who's not much of a soup eater, likes this. Our two boys - ages 5 and 2 - do, too. With homemade bread and a salad, it's a satisfying meal. -Tami Walters, Kingsport, Tennessee

"We love this soup. Once the autumn chill arrives, soups become a favorite dinner item and this one never fails to satusify. Always made exact to recipe and even better the next day."

"I loved this soup! My wife loved it more. I haven't made it yet this winter and she's been asking me to non-stop. I followed it pretty closely the first couple times I made it. The one change I do make now is I add just a touch of the bacon grease to the base. It doesn't take much but it really brings the bacon flavor out in the soup, and every man loves bacon!"

"This was a wonderful recipe. I was truly surprised because I didn't have enough milk. But it didn't matter. I had never made potato soup before, but this will be a regular recipe in my kitchen!"
