    Tasty! Even though I have a cold (main reason I made this, wanted a hearty warming soup) I could taste all the flavours very well. Alterations I made was to cook the bacon and then chop it up and put it in the soup to cook with it, and added about 1/2 dried parsley while cooking as well. Mashed up the potato before adding and then added the swirl of cream at the end. Very nice and will be a recipe I'll make over and over again, thanks!  -  16 Dec 2017
