I have never been able to make a good potato soup. This is now my new go to recipe.Even the kids ate 2 helpings. I didn't have any dinner rolls so I made quick drop biscuits with Bisquick and they gave it a wonderful taste and texture. I do have to suggest not to use dried thyme in this recipe. I didn't have fresh, so I used what was on hand. If I had to do it again without fresh thyme, I would leave it out all together. It was just way too earthy tasting for us.
