I started making this because I grew up with the mundane Potato Soup every family has tried and wanted more to it and after trying soups in restaurants I made this.
Family enjoys on cool days when they need to warm up. and want comfort food
Using Bought Potatoes gets dinner done quicker.
For vegetarian omit bacon
