I loved this soup. I didn't have any bacon so I used lowfat smoked sausage and added to the soup the last five minutes of cooking. I also added half of an onion to the boiling potatoes and about 2 t of garlic pepper, but would saute onions in some of the butter first next time. I also used the water that the potatoes cooked in, I think it would have been too thick for me if I hadn't done this. Loved the taste, and so simple to make.

This is good soup. Very rich. I didn't peel my potatoes, nor did I drain the water from them after they cooked. You lose a lot of flavor and nutritional value if you do. The vitamins in potatoes are in the skin. There aren't any ingredients listed to give the soup more flavor, so I used a package of Sausage flavored Country Gravy mix. That gave it a good flavor. This was easy to make and is inexpensive as well. I love potato sooup and will probably be making it again. Made for the Fall '07 PAC
