Great, different potato soup!! I was lucky to have wonderful smoked pork hocks,that we bought in LaPlace,La. I cooked them the day before making the soup, with a hunk of onion, celery, carrot and bay leaf until tender. Removed the hocks, strained the broth and refrigerated until next day. This way I could skim off the fat layer before using the broth and proceeding with the recipe. We skipped the sour cream and cheese. This will be a new favorite at our house.
