Don't drink the wine while your making this soup. I once drank the wine while I was cooking and added too much cheese. Oops! It took me over 12 years to find a recipe. I got this from All Recipes and messed with it to get it to MY liking.

The cream of mushroom & garlic soup overpowered this, and while the soup was ok, my husband and I didn't think it tasted like potato soup at all. The directions didn't specify when to add the soup, cheese or chicken bouillon. I added the bouillon with the water, and the cheese and soup after I used an immersion blender to puree most of the potato. I used heavy cream, not half and half, and added it all at the end. Served it with some cheddar cheese, green onion and extra crumbled bacon on top.
