This is one of my families favourites. A creamy potato soup, with lashings of bacon and German style sausages - this is a meal in a bowl with a real Bavarian flavour. Serve with crusty bread and butter. We used to live and hour away from the the most amazing German restaurant. We moved and that restaurant is now now 28 hour drive away. This recipe took many attempts to get it just right, I'm keeping it here so I don't lose it - ever. As we have lactose intolerant family members, I use lactose free milk.
