This is a great soup! I did add chopped celery to it, and I took out a cup of the soup and whirled it in the blender to make it smoother. Very good!!

Awesome Soup! My husband even liked it and he is not a fan of soup for dinner.
I added some left over carrots & broccoli...made it colorful in addition to its awesome taste!
Thanks for posting!!!! :)

I loved this! It's nothing fancy.... just good, thick tator soup with a hint of bacon. I used fat free milk to cut fat calories even further. I garnished with chopped scallions and cooked, crumbled bacon. Great soup to warm you up. Thanx!
