This hearty soup was just as the name implied! I made the recipe almost completely as written (subbing half and half for milk and therefore using more broth to compensate for the added richness), but I did use a tater masher to thicken it up and break up the potatoes after it was cooked.

My husband complimented this soup, saying it was a big improvement over "regular" potato soup. I agree. It was filling and delicious. Thanks for posting this recipe!
