    Yummy

    Kiki Harrison from Itasca, Illinois

    I made this for Easter dinner and it was enjoyed my my whole family. It was quite easy too, and heated up leftovers are jsut as great, I recommend trying to make it first, before serving it at dinner, because it can be diffucult to juggle all of the directions.

    Potato Soup

    Betty Brooks from Cullman, AL

    My family are not big soup eaters, but even my 7 year old enjoys this on a cold day. I did not add the potato skins, just chopped remaining potatoes into soup, but did add a generous amount of bacon just before serving. A new family favorite.

  •  Star(s)

    Bacon Alternative

    Tina Shorey from Taunton, MA

    Turkey bacon, 'veggie' bacon, or even baco's make an excellent substitution to the cooked crumbled bacon. I stir in sour cream instead of butter, and add the cheese and scallions stirred in at the end rather than using them as an optional garnish.

    Mmm good

    Sandie Steger from CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH

    This soup is stick to your ribs filling. I used a couple more potatoes and mashed one to thicken the soup. I also didn't have green onions so I used green peppers and I thought it was wonderful. sprinkle with ground red pepper for a little zing.

  •  Star(s)

    close to restaurant quality with additions

    Terry B. from

    I added some garlic powder, dried parsley and dried tarragon to give it more flavor and thickened it with some instant potato flakes. My husband said it was close to what he ate at a restaurant. He said to add more cheddar cheese next time.

    A CROWD PLEASER!

    Lynn Urback from Tomball, TX

    I had to multiply this recipes times 5 to feed all my guests and it was a BIG hit! Folks were going back for seconds. What really makes this meal is garnishing the soup with bacon, green onions and cheddar cheese. Soooo good!!! TIP: If the soup starts to thicken where its like mush, just add some more Carnation milk. I only had to add 1/4 cup right before serving. I had made the soup up a few hours before the guests had arrived and when I reheated it, it lost some of the liquid. No big deal just to add a little more milk in order to keep the "soup" look.

  •  Star(s)

    Loved It!!!!

    diane wood from Crescent, PA

    This is delicious!! Quick and easy, perfect for those cold winter days! I added a little bit of cheese at the end of cooking and it was wonderful!

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    Teresa Marksbury from Sandusky, OH

    This was so easy to make and it tasted excellent. I love cooking but have always been a little afraid of making potato soup, worried that it would just come out all watery and thin. But this was perfect! I added about a handful of cheddar cheese while the soup was cooking, so it got a nice cheesey taste by the end. And I let it sit and simmer for a couple hours to get nice and thick.

  •  Star(s)

    Love it!

    Susan Stevens from Westmoreland, TN

    This is a quick and easy homemade soup. I season with salt, pepper and minced garlic as needed and it's so delicious! Much faster than boiling potatoes... less mess too.

  •  Star(s)

    Needed Help

    Robin Bayer from Peshtigo, WI

    I ended up adding my own ingreidents to this recipe because it did not have alot of flavor. I am looking for bold taste and this did not have it.

    Baked Potato Soup

    Bonnie Winchell from Cicero, NY

    This is the best verison of potato soup! It was just what I was looking for.

  •  Star(s)

    Season as You Go

    Richard Davies from Belleville, MI

    Decent soup, but being listed as easy you may get some novices that don't know to season as you go and properly cook out the roux. Use sweet potatoes for a change and real treat. A touch of cinnamon works well with the sweet potato version.
