I played around with it a little bit: I omitted the bacon, threw in some grated zucchini at the end of the cooking time, and sprinkled a little cheese on top. I made some whole wheat croutons (no oil) and - wow - this was wonderful! We're looking forward to having it again soon. It's filed under "stew," so it's hard to find.

This was pretty good. I didn't have the material on hand to make the turkey stock so made a ham stock instead which I think added good flavor (though it probably raised the fat content, too). I didn't think it was creamy enough so I doubled the amount that I pureed in the blender. Also added a drained can of corn. I think this would have benefited from some fresh cilantro so I will try that next time.

Loved this. It's hard to find a potato soup recipe that's not loaded with cream. So fast and easy! Didn't have turkey stock so used chicken stock in a pinch but I'm sure it's delish with turkey stock! That was my only substitution.
