Great base recipe, however I made a few simple changes. I made the bacon, but didn't use as directed in the first step of the recipe I set aside and added later. I combined the celery, onion and garlic in a pot and cooked for 3-4 minutes then added the potatoes and chicken stock and allowed to cook until the potatoes were tender. In the next step I combined the butter, flour, heavy whipping cream and substituted the tarragon and cilantro with 1 1/2 TSP of Rosemary then combined it with the potato mixture. No need to puree the potatoes just a few simple passes with the potato masher worked just fine. I then added in the bacon to the mixture and allowed to simmer for another 5 minutes. Before the last 3 minutes of simmering I added 3/4 jar of Cheese Whiz and 1/2 cup of Sharp Cheddar cheese (shredded). My husband and 2 very picky boys LOVED IT!
