This soup is quick, easy, filling, yummy! I took Laffer's advice and removed some of the potatoes before I pureed, then added them back into the soup, resulting in a creamy broth with some nice lumps of potato. Served with a salad, we enjoyed this tasty soup - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008

We enjoyed this very quick and easy soup. I did think it would be better if the potato was not completely blended. I also wished I had made the bacon to put on top. Next time I will for sure! It does thicken up nicely. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
