    Soooo good!!! Even the 1 year old devoured it! Think this will be a staple throughout winter!!! YUM!!!

  2. Should the cream be added when the potatoes are soft and leave it to continue to cook or should cream be added at the end before cooking is finished?

  3. Big winner in our house now winter is here it’s cooking away .. can’t wait for dinner we love a crusty loaf with loads of butter on it with it yummy

  4. Best soup ever. Even my extremely fussy 2 year old ate it and my 7 year old said she wants it every night forever ?

  5. We made this Sunday
    Was yummmmoo..

    Having a cauliflower hater in the house (the biggest baby of them all; MY HUSBAND…
    ???), I used broccoli, instead.

    I also
    doubled the potatoes tripled the chicken stock,
    added an onion.
    Ad well as frying the bacon.
    It filled my Spotlight square sear ‘n cook, and tonight we’ll finish the last of it…

    Yummy yummy,

  6. I doubled this recipe and cooked it for my work’s weekly Soup luncheon and people are still talking about it weeks later!

    I used fresh herbs (guessed the amounts) and used maybe half the cream. I also fried the bacon pieces for a few minutes in my slow cooker before adding all the other ingredients and it was absolutely delicious. 10/10, can’t wait to cook it again.

  7. This recipe is absolutely delicious. I make this at least once a week in winter and it came in very handy when we were all down with COVID!
