    Excellent soup! This is a family favorite now. A very nice layering of flavors highlighted by the smoky bacon flavor. I preferred adding the cheese to the soup instead of as a garnish. The only thing I did different was add two cloves of garlic, because I love garlic. This was a great meal on a rainy Sunday night along with warmed up sourdough rolls and white wine. Three of us ate the entire amount of soup.

    We loved this, potato soup is my familys favourite and this was no exception. I phoned DH on my way home and got him to start the prep, the vegetables were already smelling delicious by the time I got home, and it only remained for me to make pesto/cheese bread and add the finishing touches! I only put in one tsp of salt, in fact initially I didn't add any, we dont care for a lot of salt, but after tasting, thought just a little would be good. I also omitted the butter, felt it was rich enough already! I did have fresh parsley though, and finely minced a green onion. This was a delectable soup and we all thank you for a wonderful supper!

    While this was a pretty good recipe I had to change it a bit for my family's liking. We are not big onion eaters so I used only a 1/2 cup of sweet onions. I found that I needed to use 3 tsp. of salt. We also like our potato soup thicker so I used a flour/water slurry to thicken it. It was also snowing pretty hard and I didn't have ANY chives, fresh or dried, and didn't want to go out for them ,so I did without. I would have liked green onion tops but then my DH wouldn't have eaten It!! LOL!! I would make this again but with the changes I've suggested.
