Bea please tell your hubby his soup is fantastic! My mom loves potato soup so I sent some over to her and she also loved his soup. I did add a cup or so of shredded cheddar instead of topping everyone's bowls and forgot to fry some bacon. Even without the garnish the soup was so very good! I want to make this over and over again! Thank you honey for sharing with us! Made and reviewed for the Photo Forums February Soup and Sandwich Event.

mmm good soup ! I just made half a recipe, turned out delicious even using 2% milk instead of cream, i can imagine it would be over the top with cream! and so easy to make. for the topping i used extra old sharp shredded cheese and crisped up bacon, loved it. Also used some garlic croutons cus i had to have a photo for the croutons, very good with them too. I'll be making this one again , thanks for posting.
