A nice hearty soup with a lot of flavor. I substituted turkey bacon for the ham and used a combo of chicken and beef stock instead of ham stock, I don't think I could even tell a difference. A very easy soup with just some chopping and stirring, thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PAC fall 08.
This was a satisfying soup. I really liked the addition of the bay leaves and all of the veggies. They made a tasty change to traditional potato soup. I omitted additional salt as both the ham & the chicken bouillon had plenty for us. I didn't find this particularly creamy. One could easily sub more milk for part of the broth if needed. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring '08 Pick A Chef.
