I gave this four stars because I made just a few tiny tweaks. Dill instead of basil, 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce. I left ALL the drippings in the pan from the bacon. I also still needed to increase the salt by about 1/2 tsp. Also I didn't have cream or half and half on hand. I substituted 2% milk and it was still plenty creamy. I loved that this recipe used REAL potatoes not instant flakes like a ton of other recipes on this site. If I wanted chemical flavored potato soup I would just get that "tastefully simple" garbage. This recipe was way easy too. Potatos MUST be baked before adding to the pot!
