    just the recipe of which "I've been dreaming"

    Ann Novick from NASHUA, NH

    Just DELICIOUS & so easy & economical too. For months I've been thinking that it should be "simple" to make a great potato soup using Instant mashed potato flakes.I've thought about it but never got around to actually trying it out. Thanks for doing my work for me & making my job as main meal preparer easier too. I'll be ading cheddar cheese shreds & pre-cooked bacon pieces to your recipe

    Lori Johnson from CIBOLO, TX

    This is a great recipe when you need something hot and quick. I liked the flavor and it was so creamy. It really looked pretty. I sprinkled some bacon bits on the top and some parsley flakes mainly for the color and tasted great with some crackers on the side. It made a good hot meal in a snap.

    A good base

    Annette from Rosepine, LA

    This is a good base for a quick potatoe soup. With out the additions, it didn't seem to have much flavor. I added a can of cream of mushroom, bacon, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

    Quick Creamy Potato Soup

    Gloria Blake from Monroe Twp.,N.J. 08831

    I felt that the soup needed something in it so I diced two potatoes and once it started to boil added the potatoes and let it simmer for 15 minutes. That was better. Then sprinkled some bacon bits on top..

    MARGARET Casaletto from BROOKLYN, NY

    This recipe is very quick to prepare. I used chicken stock instead of water. I garnished it with chopped up scallions. The flavor was so rich and tasty. I love being able to make something tasty while controlling what goes into it. It is also yummy with a loaf of good, crusty bread.
