Very good basic recipe-have to add spices accding to your tastes..2nd time making recipe, I added a can of Cream of Chicken soup at the beginning, and also diced onions. Spices used: Old Bay, Garlic salt, reg. salt, garlic powder, white pepper, dill weed, 2 bay leaves, Cavender's seasoning. Very very good with 'real' bacon bits & shredded cheddar added too. Top w/sour cream & more cheese if you want! Read More

I like potato soup but I really didn't care for this one. It was easy to prepare, thinkened up real nice but it just didn't have any flavor. Salt and pepper helped a bit, but it needs something more in my opinion. If you like plain tasting soup this will work for you if you don't keep looking. Read More

This soup was good. When I printed the recipe it called for eight pounds of potatoes so I made much more than called for. I think it should have read eight cups? Read More

I opted for vegetable bouillon instead of chicken and olive oil instead of butter. Salt and pepper and garlic to taste. The soup was wonderful and hearty. It was almost a garlic baked potato soup and delicious! Read More

Simple and good recipe. My pickiest child loved it. I will use this recipe again. Also I did use 8 cups instead of 8lbs potato. I also added some velveeta to it about a half hour before serving. Read More

I added a few dashes of Mrs. Dash's Onion and Herb Powder when preparing the soup and a few more dashes about an hour b4 i served the soup. I put bacon bits scallions and some cheddar on the side for folks to garnish the soup. Huge hit at the office food day. Read More

Yummy! I added two carrots sliced up and used Knorr Leek soup mix instead of the other seasonings. For sure the 8 POUNDS of potatoes has to be a typo; I used 8 potatoes. Before adding the milk (I cut it down to 1 cup of milk and 1/3 cup of flour) I scooped out the carrots then mashed the potato soup mixture; then put the carrots back in added the milk and flour. Topped with cheddar cheese and served! Great! Would make again! Read More

This was a real life saver when my family and I got snowed in for 2 days. I added a little bit of cooked bacon and "squeeze" cheese the second time I made it and it made a terrific recipe just that much better!! Read More
