Very delicious but the recipe is missing some information. It doesn't say what to do with the milk. So I added the milk just before I added the butter/flour mixture and it came out just fine.

Both my husband and I thought this was bland. Perhaps with a bit of tweaking, we could ge it to our liking. I think, however, I will keep looking. Thanks for sharing.

I think this recipe is amazing!!! I make enough to freeze about once a month. I've had my mom over for lunch and she loved it as well. People ask for the recipe all the time! The only real change I made was to use chicken broth instead of water. As well, I always add extra veg and I leave the skins on my potatos.

This potato soup is great and very easy to make. The first time I made it I followed the recipe as stated and the second time the only change I made was that I used Yukon gold potatoes and a little chopped onion and they both turned out great. The only other suggestion I have is to top with chopped green onion and crispy pre-cooked bacon before serving. Great recipe.

omw! I sauteed the veggies in the bacon fat before simmering in beef broth instead of the water, added 1/2 parmeasn cheese, 2tsp of franks red hot sauce...and wow! very savory!

This soup was really good and is a family favorite. My husband loves spicy foods and this soup had just enough spices to please everyone. It is a really cheesy soup and very delicious! I top my soup with extra cheese, bacon bits and chives. I recommend this soup to everyone and will fix it again!

Absolutely wonderful!!! Yum, yum, yum! I had to find a good potato cheese soup recipe when I found out the restaurant I used to eat it at used chicken broth (I am a vegetarian.) This was simple to make, and so good! We used vegetable broth instead of water, and we used twice as much. I also added onion and garlic with the carrots and celery. I would highly recommend trying this...the perfect potato cheese soup!

This soup is sooooo good! As a vegetarian it's hard to find potato soups that have no bacon in them, so I made some myself. But couldn't have done it without this recipe! Only thing is it came out pretty thick- I had to add water to thin it out.
