    Photo may be seen here (in Savor): www.annacia.com. DH and both feel that this is one of the best potato soups we have ever had. I didn't use any sausage and in place of the half and half I added about 1 1/4 cups of heavy cream (leftover from Christmas that had passed it's date -still good though- and had to be used) which likely had something to do with the excellence of the soup,lol. Honestly, it was something that you would expect in an expensive restaurant. I topped mine with sliced green onion and some black pepper. This is going into my Favorites of 2013 cookbook right now and I will most certainly be making it many times again (DH even ask me to print the recipe so that he can make it!!!!)

    Very good! I used chicken broth instead of water, used no salt, lots of pepper, and I added smoked sausage. I like my soup thick, which this was, and chunky, so I just mashed the potatoes a bit. Thanks for posting!

    I made this as 2 serves planning on giving the DM 1 and putting the other in the fridge for the next day but the DM ate up the lot in 1 sitting (not bad when she said she wasn't really hungry :lol: ). The only change I made was to use hi-lo milk for the half and half and Carisma potatoes (a low GI potato). Thank you Debbwl, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by averybird.
