A stick to your ribs meal! Serve with cheese, bacon or herbs.
This was some great soup! Just one note; The recipe says to add the garlic cloves to the pot....should they be roasted with the potatoes? I roasted them and the soup was delicious! - 19 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thought this was was really good. I think it would be even better the longer it sat but it didn't have time to sit very long before it was all gone. Even my son the picky eater ate 2 bowls. Personally i didnt put it in a blender til smooth. I used a potato masher, left everything in the pot and mashed it up some in the pot. I used larger chunks of potato so i was able to just mash those up into smaller ones. Topped it off with light cheddar, bacon bits and chives. I didnt hold any of the potatos back in reserve. I didnt even use any oil as it said to do so i could cut the fat count down further. Great recipe and great base for other things. Thanks. - 09 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've made this twice & I really like it. I added the garlic to the potatoes & roasted them, too. This time I just mashed the potatoes, so it would be a little bit chunky and added some ham and colby/jack cheese. YUM! Don't forget a nice loaf of crusty bread! - 27 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
