    jillcomeau's Note:

    I've tried many potato soup recipes and most all of them have been pretty good. This one, however, it absolutely the best. It is truly a treat. All you need to go with it are some crusty rolls and a green salad and you have an excellent meal.

      This is an excellent potato soup! It is rich, thick and creamy and full of delicious flavor. I really enjoyed the bacon and sharp cheddar cheese in this soup. I will make this one again. It is now one of my favorite soups. I served "Parmesan-Basil Biscuits" with this. Made for the Photo Forum's Belly Warmers: Soup and Stews January 2009 Event.

      Thank you so much for sharing this terrific soup recipe Jill. We loved it. The soup was thick like a chowder and chocked full of beautiful flavors. It was quick and easy to make with excellent results. The flavor was just awesome and the textures were terrific. The soup was velvety and smooth. Made for Name that Ingredient Tag Game.

      I was pretty concerned that I'd have to scrap the whole thing when it came to step 4. Rues and I have a rocky history and this experience was no different. It was separating and looked like tapioca pudding. With a call to my mother-in-law though, she helped me salvage everything and it ended up turning out great. It tastes delicious and I'm glad it all worked out. With just two of us, we will have leftovers for several days which will be nice for us to take as lunch to work or as dinner if I work late.
