Add parsley, mix with the immersion blender, until very smooth. Add cream, nutmeg, pepper and fishsauce, put in Frankfurter and heat through. Adjust seasoningss, laddle in deep soup bowls, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve.
- Note : If you add some more cream and mix the soup in a blender to get it supersmooth, than refrigerate it for 4 or 5 hours and serve it cold, you got a french classic : Vichyssoise.
