    This is excellent. My husband loves bacon but he said this soup would be great even without the bacon! The herbs add a nice fresh taste.

    Hi Chefmeow, I just made this last night. I can now confirm that yes, this IS America's best baked potato soup! My kids don't even eat potatoes, but they liked the soup! The flavours and seasonings were perfect! Added this to my favourites and will definitely make again! Added a photo for you. Have a great one!

    What's not to like about soup with bacon, potatoes and cheese. Especially on a cold winters day
