6 thick slices
1 1/2 teaspoons
low fat, low sodium chicken broth
shredded Cheddar cheese
As usual, I read reviews - nearly 6 pgs of them - got tickled that several reviewers didn't really REVIEW; they REVAMPED the soup into something entirely different from Kwollaks original. Suit yourself, but this soup, just as it IS, is wonderful. I made this for a "Gourmet Group" and all agreed that it is terrific. Being part of such a group, I actually used fresh chicken broth, made from boiling a real chicken and no-salt added. Thank you-this soup was a HIT!
No good. Only decent after MAJOR changes. It was like potatoes in broth, not a creamy hearty soup. I had to add milk, knorr chicken bouillion and more to make it palatable. Will trash this recipe- not for us, sorry. Maybe better suited to those looking for a brothy potato soup vs. a hearty creamy one?
I changed a few things and all the neighbors loved it-5 people asked for the recipe.Instead of bacon I used 3cups chopped ham (leftover from Thanksgiving), I changed to regular chicken broth, 2 cups of cheddar, omitted the salt, added 1/2 cup milk, 3 chopped green onions, and 1 TBSP parsley. BEST SOUP EVER!!!
Excellent flavor! I made just a few modifications- sauteed the veggies in the bacon fat & used 1/2 chicken broth & 1/2 milk to make it a little creamier. I also used a potato masher to break up the potatoes in the pot prior to serving.
My husband and toddler gobbled it up!
I make about 20 soups a month and almost never make the same soup twice in a month however I've made this soup 4 times in the same month it is to die for people can't get enough of it. I'm a caterer for small event (under 50 people). I cater to all types of people from blue collars to suits and they all love this soup just the same. It will become a perminate item on my menu. Thanks so much!?!
This soup is delicious! I didn't think it would thicken up after I poured in 4 cups of chicken broth, but after simmering, I had no trouble with the thickness. I would recommend maybe 3/4 cup of cheese instead of 1/2. Other than that, this came out wonderfully!
This was very tasty! I used regular chicken broth, not low salt. I pureed half of the soup mixture in the blender, then added it to the remaining soup with the bacon. That made for a nice texture.
I added some corn and chopped ham to the leftovers the next day for a hearty lunch. This is a keeper, thanks!
It was pretty good as written, but why in the world would you get rid of all that yummy bacon grease and replace it with olive oil??? I know it's supposed to be healthier, but my grandparents both lived into their 90's eating bacon fat and/or lard nearly every day!
