    This is delicious! Tastes like a rich high fat baked potato soup from a restaurant. I used half the cheese with reduced fat Irish cheddar. Couldn't resist topping it with a dash of salt and low fat bacon bits. The bottom of the pot did burn with the milk though, not sure how to avoid that. What a great soup!

    Delish! Hard to believe that this is low-fat. I used reduced-fat cheese because I like the way it melts better and this made a very thick and creamy soup. I used an immersion blender in the pan, and left some chunks for texture. Thanks mickey for a nice soup. Made for Aussie Swap #14.
