    ms_bold's Note:

    This is a thick and hearty potato soup. It really satisfies a hungry appetite on a cold day. I have prepared the soup and left in a crockpot on low for several hours.

      This was good! Left out the parsley. I did add a little chicken bullion and red pepper. I will try it with sausage next time.

      This is a keeper! Very easy to do and fairly quick. I used 3 slices bacon and a handful of tiny diced ham, added 2 big cloves of garlic to the onions, and had to use a bit more water than called for to cook the potatoes. I also used a LOT of pepper! I think I may try broccoli next time in place of the green beans. This didn't make enough to serve 6 in my opinion. We got 2 bowls, and leftovers for ~ 1 and a half bowls.

      WOW! This soup is amazing! It's creamy but also flavorful, which is something a lot of creamy potato soups lack. Also, if you use fat free sour cream, skim milk and turkey bacon, it's also a very filling but reduced-calorie dinner! (this is what we turned out great!) Sprinkle with a little low-fat mozzarella cheese, and you have a soup that makes for a great-tasting meal all by itself!
