This is a delicious and easy soup. Sometimes I go ahead and mix the bacon and sour cream right into the whole pot, which makes it richer and gives it a real and bacony flavor. This is one of my families favorites. I got this from a friend. I'm not sure where she got it from.

Wonderful potato soup! I did as you suggested by adding the bacon and sour cream right into the pot....so rich and creamy. "Delicious and easy" is the best way to describe this soup. Thank you so much, LeeAnn Duch!!
