      This was exactly what I was looking for when I had a craving for bacon and potato soup! It was easy to make and very satisfying. Loved the nutmeg! I did make a few changes though: I used garlic salt instead of plain salt, added white pepper along with the black pepper, and then I used whipping cream instead of just cream so it was very creamy. I have had this recipe for only a couple weeks and I have already made it three times! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It is the best! It will be a favorite of ours for years to come!
