"This soup was great, so creamy. I add some carrots and green beans to it and it has a little more fiber and a little more heartiness to it." — MakeItHealthy

I have always liked the original version of this recipe and I liked this too, but I don't know how much 'healthier' it is. I used about 4 large carrots and a whole smallish onion - a lot more celery than is called for. Add what ever vegetables you have available. This is one of those great comfort meals - enjoy but don't think it is that much 'healthier'.
This soup turned out wonderful!! I think I used this recipe more as a guide..
Used the ham bone from my New Years ham to make a stock- covered the bone in water in a stock pot and let it simmer for about 3 hours. Then used that as my base. Added celery, onion, carrot, and potatoes- cooked. Then added roux. I also added a little garlic, salt, chicken boullion, and cayenne pepper.
My first time cooking potato soup & it will definitely not be the last!!
My mom and I just made a pot of this potato soup
for dinner.It is very good.I didn't have any chopped
Ham so I used Hillshire Sausage instead.I used can cut green beans
because I didn't have any fresh ones.The amount of vegetables
were lowered because of the amount of juice.I also used less
butter and flour.I added a tablespoon of corn starch.I also
added some whipping cream.I seasoned to taste with salt pepper and seasoning salt.This recipe is certainly a keeper.
This was tasty! I glanced at the recipe thinking I had everything, but was very wrong. I had to butcher it because I was out of so much. I subbed a leek for celery, shallot for onion, chicken broth for bullion/water and cornstarch for flour. I had only about 1 Tbs butter and made that work too. For being so short on some key ingredients, it turned out great! It's also good to know I could make it with much less butter and it still tasted wonderful! Next time I will be sure to have flour, otherwise I kinda like the revisions I had to make. I had to use a little more than a cup of milk but that may be due to the cornstarch.
My husband and two kids all really liked this soup. I didn't even add the milk/flour. I found that once I used a masher to mash up the potatoes, the soup was plenty thick and creamy. Also I used a spiral ham that had enough salt, so I skipped the bouillon. I added fresh dill and parsley too. So with less salt and no milk, it was even healthier/low calorie.
Great soup. I added corn and used a bit of beef bouillon instead of chicken. turned out fine. Thanks for the recipe!
Absolutely the very best soup I've tasted.
This was delicious! My husband said it was the best potato soup he's had. We didn't add the green beans because all we had were canned beans and I didn't think that sounded very good. I will probably experiment with this a little bit- my husband wants to add peas.
