Here's my recipe, adapted from my mom's. I like Yukon Gold potatoes, but any kind is just fine.

CONNIE'S POTATO SOUP

Ingredients:
6 thick slices of bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 leeks, white part only, sliced thin
1 medium carrot, grated
cup chopped celery
6 cloves garlic, minced
approx. 1/4 cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups skim milk (or whatever kind you have on hand)
2 cups water
6-8 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and chopped in bite-size pieces
2 tbl salt
white pepper to taste
2 tbl chopped Italian parsley
4 oz cream cheese, cubed (opt)

Directions:
Sweat chopped bacon slowly in a soup pot over medium heat. When it's beginning to crisp, add vegetables and cook a few minutes, until tender. Add flour and turn heat up to med/high. Cook and stir a few minutes until flour browns a bit, then deglaze with the chicken broth. When soup begins to thicken, add milk, water, potatoes, Italian parsley, salt and pepper. Cook till potatoes are tender, reseason, then add cream cheese and stir till melted.

I'm glad you all like it! The cream cheese is just an extra...the soup is still good without it.
My mother actually never made potato soup, but Grandma White did, and mom said she just used bacon, onions, potatoes and water. That's where I started, and the recipe evolved from there.

My Mom used to make the basic one and I liked it. But this one looks really good.
