Bacon and Potato Soup

Ok so this soup may not having been the easiest to photograph since the color palette isn't the prettiest, but it was so good! I have always loved loaded potato soup with all the fixin's, but I wanted something similar without all the calories.

This soup has so much flavor for being a basic broth soup and it's perfect any time of the year. I loved the addition of the bacon and cheese to the individual portions so everyone can personalize their own. I added a dollop of sour cream to mine and loved it!

In other words, your family will love this easy and tasty soup. Be sure to give it a try!
