Bacon and Potato Soup

Recipe by Tandy Higgins

Comfort Food from January 08' Bunco! I had to triple the recipe in order to feed our group of eight. Serve the soup in a sour dough bread bowl from Panera Bread for something different. Top with shredded mild cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Awesome!

Simple and delicious, very comforting! We like a less-chunky soup so blended after the potato-simmering step, then put the purée back in the pot for adding soup, sour cream etc. Thanks for a lovely easy winter warmer! (Or autumn warmer, more accurately!)
