    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    This soup gets its depth of flavor from slowly cooking the onions until they become delightfully sweet and golden brown. Bacon, ham and potatoes add to the soup’s heartiness, while fresh dill gives it a sophisticated touch. Fingerling potatoes work nicely if you can find them. Submitted online by Janice Cole, and saving for Fall/Winter months...

      Well this was a wonderful, warm lunch today (it only reached 59* here). Very filling for a soup. I only had Russet potatoes, but I cubed them and it worked just fine. I used regular chicken broth (not low-sodium) so I skipped the salt. I had left over ham, so I cubed that. The kicker was the sour cream. Nice, velvety texture. I actually added a dollop more to my individual bowl. I even thought about sprinkling some shredded cheese over the top (maybe tonight). The crispy bacon really adds to the texture and flavor. Hubby isn't home yet to try it, and he doesn't get here soon, there may not be any left! Thank you for posting a very nice soup recipe. (Made for "My 3 Chefs")
