D-lish! This is a simple dish but soooo good. The texture is like velvet and the flavor is hearty and sublime. Added a bit less on the sourcream and was still wonderful. You could make a double batch so you have enough for the next day. Highly recommended.

Sounds great, and that is how we make it, but we also cook it with a bayleaf, which gives a touch of extra taste. If we made it thick - for fözelek -we put a touch of marjoram in it also, served with some leftover meat, or fried sausage/hotdog, etc.

I have tried many different potato soup recipes, and I must say now this is one of my favorites. I added a little more paprika because I love the flavor, otherwise I stuck to the recipe as written. This is a great comfort soup, and this recipe is going straight into my favorites file. Thank you, Glitter!
