The Soup Saturday Swappers are sharing soups starring Potatoes today.......
I am hosting this month and I asked the others to join me in sharing Potato Soup recipes.  I chose this topic so that I could share this amazing recipe with you, my readers, after serving it up as part of my St. Pat's celebration last month.

I am anxious to see what potato soups the others are sharing with us today........

You could even make this soup using any leftover mashed potatoes if you are serving them for Easter dinner tomorrow, just stir them into the hot stock and skip the puree step.  This soup would be great paired with a leftover ham sandwich.
