Herbs for Potato Soup

What herb do you add to potato soup? Potatoes are a bargain now so potato soup it is. I make a traditional cream based soup with onion, celery, grated carrot and bacon. Left in the garden I have dill, cilantro, sage, basil and thyme. I am leaning towards thyme...but wondered what others use. Thanks

    1. I love potato soup for its creamy neutrality. A garnish of parsley is nice.


      1. Of those you list, I'd choose thyme. Chives would also be nice.

          1. re: scuzzo

            I like a sprig of fresh dill on top. It just adds a nice 'lemony' twist.

          2. I always make potato leek soup, which doesn't need too much extra flavor. Just a pinch of thyme. If making some other potato soup, I would lean towards dill though, I add that to lots of my dishes, love it.
