Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a really tasty soup. I love cheese and bacon so it was an immediate magnet for me and I sure wasn't disappointed!

I chose to leave the skins on the potatoes when I cut them up, and really liked the end result. When my husband tried the soup, though, he thought he might like it better without the skins.  This is a matter of taste, so feel free to experiment and make it your own.
