This soup was excellent!
I did not use any of the potato peel and omitted the sour cream.
We had a soup and salad luncheon for 25 people during the holidays and everybody loved this soup!

I haven't tried to make the receipe yet because you do not specify if you are supposed to cook the potatoes ahead of time, if you are supposed to cut them up. Can you help me with an answer?

Cherry, you bake the potatoes beforehand in the microwave or oven.

I used low fat sour cream, 2% cheese, and cut the bacon in half to reduce calories and it was still great. It gets too thick though, so milk has to be added after the first day. I did not peel my potatoes and used 6 instead of 4.
