  4. Add the paprika and cook for further 30 seconds.
  5. Return the bacon to the pan and add the potato and stock.
  6. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are very soft.

Made it for bf and self. Added extra cheese and wish I had added some more bacon. I also think next time I will add some half and half in place of stock. Overall great recipe though. Just a little tweak for perfection. Thanks!

Excellent Soup! Since we all like the skins, I just scrubbed the potatoes and then chopped them. I will be making this again, and again ...
