    Chef #831701's Note:

    When I was a little girl, cold winter nights at my grandmothers always called for her wonderful potato soup. She would serve it with fresh hot cornbread or home made yeast rolls and it warmed you all the way to your toes. It always brings back memories of a wonderful woman who was a great influence in my life. I still miss her. Sometime she would add fresh broccoli, and it was also great. I misplaced this recipe once and searched the web over never finding another even close. Thankfully, I had given a copy to a friend and was able to get it back.

      I have made the cream of potato recipe several times. I have subbed the bacon for ham and have added in some Hot Italian sausage (about 12 oz) browned and then a dash of red pepper flake for kick. The recipe is great as is but I like to "kick it up a notch".
