This soup is awesome. I did as others suggested and added additional potatoes, cut back on the milk so it was a bit creamier, and I also left out the salt since there were so many other salt ingredients.

Followed the recipe exactly - sage over powered the taste, couldn't taste the cheese. Way too much trouble for the poor taste. Definitely wouldn't make again.

Awesome and unique soup!! Very simple to make! I ommitted the sage (none available), reduced the amount of thyme by half and only used 3 1/2cups of milk (which was all I thought was neccessary to keep the soup at the consistency that we enjoy). Very flavorful and "high-class." Next time, I may use 1-2 more potatoes and perhaps even the addition of a 1/2c celery while sauting the onions. Excellent soup and would go great as a first course entree' to any meal!! Thanks Kristin for sharing this recipe!!

Wow! What a soup! I used 3 large russet potatoes in mine. Thanks for the recipe!

The flavors of the soup were very rich and sharp. You could really taste the parmesam, and the bacon added a nice smokey flavor to the soup. I halved the butter in this recipe, and ended up just caramelizing the onions, since I think the flavor is a little better if you can get them nice and brown. I also stopped adding milk at 4 cups, because it was a pretty thin soup by that time and I wanted it to retain some thickness. Overall, a very easy and tasty soup to make; quick to prepare and eat.

You weren't kidding! This was the best potato soup ever! I added garlic, didn't add all the salts, doubled up on the basil, used buttermilk and cut the amount in half. Also, I cooked the onions in the bacon drippings. Boy was it good!

Delicious!!. I used only 2 14.5oz cans of chicken broth (not the 4.5 cups called for) and 1 to 2 cups of milk. I wanted it thick. I also added about a tablespoon of granulated garlic to the spice mix. Thanks for a great recipe. The family loved it.
