Yum. I halved the recipe and left most of the potatoes in chunks because I like chunks in my soup. lol. Very easy to make and it made a wonderful lunch. Thanks for sharing, Pat.

A great soup that we really enjoyed, thick, flavourful and comforting!!! Bacon is sooo nice ha ha!!! Enjoyed it with your garlic bread, rather than sprigs of thyme I added a good shake of dried thyme. All in all a pleasure, thanks Pat!!!

Yummy, yummy, and more yummy!!! I made this as written, although adding just a bit of cheddar cheese and green onion to the top for some added color and I used butter in place of the oil (and used a bit more). I served it with some sour dough baguette and salad for my lunch. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!
