This was delicious! I made it up ahead of time then put it in my crock pot to stay warm until supper time. Next time, I'll remove the potato peelings before mashing--my family didn't care for the peelings in the soup. My 18 year old son wasn't home to eat with us so he had leftovers the next day. His comment--"That soup--it was awesome!" I will definitely make it again.
