Shredded cheddar cheese and bacon makes a fantastic dish that tastes like your favorite baked potato with toppings!

To peel or not to peel, that is the question. We've made this soup both ways, and most folks prefer the unpeeled version. It gives the soup great depth of flavor; but it's really cook's choice.
Cream, Half-and-Half, whole milk or even 2% milk can be used in the recipe. The higher the fat content, the richer the soup.
