Easy Creamy, Cheesy Potato Soup W/ Crisp Bacon

This soup is fabulous, and much easier than the more complicated, time-intensive potato soup that I sometimes make. It is easy to throw together on a weekday night, or for lunch. You can, of course, use real potatoes (2 cups potatoes, skinned and cut into cubes), but I find it is even easier, and just as delicious, to use canned, sliced potatoes. It is a filling, creamy, and hearty soup, one that can easily be served alone for a complete meal. Although shared with me by my sister-in law, it actually originally came from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, and then has been adjusted by me. You will love this soup - as my husband says, "This soup is awesome!!!! "

    Yum! This soup should be called "loaded baked potato soup"- it's very quick and easy, and really hits the spot on a cold windy day. I made it with a some slight deviations- I used only 1 cup of milk, to lower the total amount of liquid and make it creamier. I added about 6 ounces of shredded cheddar jack into the melt and I used dried chives instead of the parsley. Beacuse I could not find Johnny's seasoning salt, I used Cavenders, and I used real bacon bits thrown in at the beginning to get hot instead of fresh fried bacon. It tastes just like a big restaurant baked potato, but in a creamy soup! Love that it is 99% pantry staples.
