    Chef #169102's Note:

    This soup is my own recipe and is easy to make. It's thick and creamy texture is very filling and combined with a crusty french bread becomes a meal unto itself. Reheats on the stove or in the microwave very well so don't be afraid to make this several days ahead of time.

      This soup was excellent! I made it according to the recipe. It was easy to make, and warms up great for leftovers. It is very cheesy. I don't care for sharp cheddar, but I used it anyway, and it was delicious. The sharpness is mellowed by the cream. I thought it made more than 6 to 8 servings. I believe it made about 13 Cups of soup.
      Next time, I am going to double the bacon and use "whipping cream" instead of "heavy whipping cream", to try to cut back the calories. I am also going to increase the amount of potatoes. I thought about trying half and half, and then cutting out one of the Cups of water, but I'm not sure I want to ruin the soup.
      I would highly recommend this. I had compliments from everyone that tried it. It has gone into my "Favorites" cookbook.
