    Love potato soup! It is such a comfort food!

  8. Melissa P. says:

    This looks like the perfect thing to make for my friend having twins. Can you tell me if this freezes well?

  9. I made this today and it was AMAZING!!!! I did not add the bacon or any of the extra toppings because it really does not need anything! I didn’t have Kosher salt, so I used sea salt and it turned out perfect. A new family favorite!

  10. What a wonderful soup! I chopped my carrots into small pieces, and they were not tender at 6 hours on low. Maybe next time I should try thinly shredding them instead? What a great way to get a one’s vegetables. I LOVED this soup and will be holding on to this great recipe.

  11. Love soups,and potatoes,ones!!
