I'm a soup lover and will be trying this as soon as I have left-over turkey. In the meantime, I'm posting this from Cooking Light's Nov. 08 issue. Pancetta can be subbed for the Canadian bacon.

Absolutely delicious!! My whole family loved the soup. I didn't change anything except that I didn't have fresh sage so I substituted with parsley. I didn't think Canadian bacon would taste good with turkey but it sure did. My son who is 5 usually don't like soup, but the first thing he said that it was yummy. This recipe is definitely a keeper for me. Thank you so much for posting.

Taste's like mashed potato on a spoon. Just delightful! A smooth soup that is so filling and satisfying that you want to eat two bowls. I didn't change anything except to use a apple cured thick sliced bacon in place of the Canadian bacon. Otherwise, followed the recipe exactly. I left a couple pieces of potato whole and the sage/celery leaves really added such a pretty look to the whole soup bowl. Quite a lovely soup, DuChick, thanks for posting this recipe! Made for a bonus tag, *Potluck Tag Game* January 2009.

This is just plain yummy! Especially on a chilly day. I didn't have the Canadian Bacon and my proportions were 'just what I had already on hand' but the mashed 'taters' made it so, so good! 2Thumbs up at my house!
