This soup was indeed delicious! But I can't leave well enough alone, so I did make a few changes (or should I say, additions) to the recipe, including a few slices of bacon which I fried until crispy (for topping), and the reserved bacon drippings which helped cook the onions. I also put in about 1/2 cup diced celery and one small diced carrot to the onions. Like some other reviewers, I also only removed half of the potatoes to be pureed, since I wanted some chucky bits left. I also put in more broth, just to make it a little "soupier." But, it would have been great without these additions!
I received highest reviews from my mother when I surprised her with a freshly made, hot bowl of this for lunch. She immediately called me back to exclaim, "Best potato soup ever!" And she is a wonderful cook, and grew up eating potato soups made by other great cooks as well! I couldn't have been happier! I wish I had made double the amount! I have tried various potato soups before... some which were passable, and some which were great, but this is the best yet.
This is a sure-fire recipe, and would be great as is or expouned upon. It was delicious topped with crumbled bacon and chives, and I look forward to eating the remainder at supper tonight. Thanks!
