Wonderful, wonderful!! This is not your average "cream of potato" soup. This is a hearty, meaty, one-dish meal! I didn't have ground pork, so I used ground beef, and it was great. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. One suggestion I would make, Lorac, would be to give a quantity in cups or number for the potatoes. I had a hard time gauging how many potatoes made 2 lbs. I used too many and had to add more broth. Not a loss, though, since we had more soup then!!

this is very good, a meal in a bowl. i used 3 leeks, 2 cloves garlic and 3 large potatoes, added a cup of chicken stock too. when the soup was done i removed the meatballs and used an immersion blender to thicken it a bit,then added the meatballs back. served this with fresh french bread and a salad
