“LEFT OVER BAKED POTATOES STOP HERE! Who dosen't like potato soup?! This one is infused with an amazing basil flavor. It is very authentic, but the basil gives it a little something wonderful..a new dimension if you will. I bet having leftover baked potatoes from a grill would really bring a new smoky flavor to this soup if you've got em'.”
