Awesome soup I bowled potatos in chicken stock instead of water... used real cheddar cheese shredded about 2 cups and also 4 cups milk and 2 cups non fat cream with 3 tablespoons sour cream... thicker,richer! But still excellent base recipe

Pretty good, not the best cheesy potato soup I have ever eaten. It was missing something. Well worth if for the little effort required.

Everyone I have fed this soup to really love it and it really is easy to make. Kids seem to really love it. I make this at a middle school I work at and the kids really eat it up.

I have seven daughters and I need recipes that they all enjoy -- they ALL loved this one and have asked me to make it again.

this was a great base recipe. my husband doesn't care for carrots or celery, so i added extra potatoes, garlic and onion. to give it a little more flavour i used roasted garlic potato flakes. it was a huge hit!

I increased this recipe from 8 to 12 servings and ended up with a LOT of soup. And that's fine--I'm a soup maniac. This wasn't quite as good as another potato soup recipe I tried from this website, but was still excellent. I used this recipe to inaugurate my new food processor, which works great. If you still don't have one, consider buying one! It sure beats chopping all those vegetables when you are in a hurry! I picked this recipe because I had all of the ingredients without a trip to the store. Without any added spice to speak of, I expected a soup that was a little bland. Surprisingly, it was very tasty. Thanks for the submission!
