UPDATE: SINCE I WASN'T A FAN, I GAVE MY PARENTS LEFTOVERS. ALTHOUGH MY DAD LIKED THIS, HE ALSO AGREED THAT THE SOUP WAS A TAD WATERY (BUT TASTY). This was allright.... Certainly not the best potato soup I've ever had, but not the worse one either. Had my soup thickened as it should have, I would have a different opinion. Even after 30 minutes on HIGH (I bumped my sc setting to high in hopes that my soup would thicken - 30 minutes on low did NOTHING), my soup was pretty watery. It seemed to thicken up after sitting on the warm setting, but was still a tad too thin for my liking. I invited my neighbor over for dinner and she ended up showing up an hour later than expected. Because the soup seemed to thicken over time, this worked out well. :) As many other reviewers did, I too cooked my bacon, drained it and saved to use as garnish. I then sauteed my onion in the reserved grease (mmm...) and proceeded as directed. For a pretty (and yummy!) presentation, I garnished each bowl of soup with my reserved bacon, snipped chives and shredded Monterey-cheddar blend cheese. Sourdough bread was a perfect accompainment. Although good, I think I'll stick with my stovetop recipe for ham and potato soup (it's MUCH better and just as easy to prepare). Thanks anyways, ROZANRENEE. :-)
