Nothing beats a nice warming bowl of soup on a cold day. I made half a recipe using sharp cheddar cheese. I used my immersion blender to break up the potatoes a little before serving and reserved a bit of the bacon to garnish along with the green onions. This was served as a meal with a tossed salad.

Oh my; this is a thick, creamy and great tasting potatoes soup. DH was truly impressed. It had the best blend of flavors - like a loaded baked potatoe and pretty easy to make. I did prepare it all and then put it in the crockpot on low for 4 hours, adding the cheese in the last 30 minutes and lowing the heat to "keep warm". We were having company and this way it was ready to go when everyone arrived. Made for Fall PAC 2012
I really enjoy making and EATING this soup! It has been a big hit at Poker Night and several pitch-in suppers that I have attended. The trick is to not let the soup get hot enough to curdle the cheesy goodness.
