      Kann, this is Delicious Potato soup. We like the Ham and Cheese in it. I add a can of evaporated milk as part of the milk. It was so good and creamy. Served it with a green salad.

      A really good, easy potato soup! My poor family is sick and don't have much of an appetite, so I wanted to make them something easy and comforting. I fried 3 slices of diced bacon with the onion and it gave everything a nice smoky flavor. My only complaint is I have no idea how this is supposed to make 12 servings! My DH & I and our 2 young kids each had a serving and there was only one left over.

      I found this recipe a wonderful "base". It needed a little something else. I did not use the ham or sugar and used only 1.5 cups of skim milk and 1.5 cups of fat free chicken broth. Also to cut the calories just a bit more I used a reduced fat butter but, only 1/2 the amount and then used a bit of cold pressed olive oil. Also added green onion, parsely, and 2% cheese. And just to give it that "hmmm what's in there" flair I put some fresh nutmeg in it! OHG it is wonderful!
