“This recipe is now one of my all-time favorite soup recipes. It would be good for tailgate parties, brunches, or winter luncheons. I did add a couple extra potatoes just because I love them and I skipped the bacon, but I posted it as written. Recipe courtesy of Beyond Burlap, Idaho's Famous Potato Recipes Junior League of Boise. DELICIOUS!”
