  1. In large pot, boil potatoes in water 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. In large heavy pot, sauté bacon, onion and celery over medium-high heat until celery is tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove mixture from pot, drain bacon grease and return mixture to pot. Add milk, water, base, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture is very hot, about 8 minutes, stirring often. Do not let mixture boil.
  3. In small, heavy saucepan melt margarine. Add flour and mix well. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture bubbles, stirring 2 to 3 minutes to make a roux. While constantly stirring soup, add roux slowly until soup is thick and creamy, about 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in parsley, reserved potatoes, and cream. Garnish with cheese, bacon bits, onions or all three.
  5. Serve hot.

Everyone loves this soup and asks me for the recipe. It's so good. I don't add the extra salt because otherwise its a bit salty for my taste. I'd recommend leaving it out and adding to taste at the end.

This is delicious, rich flavored. I didn't have parsley but used dried cilantro and I used Sysco chicken base but this is an excellent recipe! I will definetly make again!
