The soup is good. The instructions, on the other hand, need some clarifing. Putting flour in a pan & cooking it til "pasty"? What's that all about? I think most of us realize the idea was to make a roux. Anyway, it was delicious with only 4 slices of bacon. I would definately make this again.

I think it would be better without the potato flakes. Just use more potato and puree most of the solids at the end. I did add fennel and that was good.

This was just about THE best potato soup I've ever had! My husband raved about it. The only thing I added was a couple of stalks of finely chopped celery and 1 tsp of chopped garlic (I put it in just about everything, though). This one is definitely a keeper!!!!

Thank you for the base to a great soup. The only thing I omitted was the flour. For the instant potatoes I used 1 packet of garlic and cheddar along with 3 med size potatoes grated like hash browns, two cans of cream of celery and a little pepper. I also only used the meat from the bacon, none of the fat and only half a med size onion. My whole family loves it!

I made this soup for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit! I made it exactly as written and it was delicious. I agree, the recipe was confusing regarding the flour, but you just need to make a simple roux with the bacon grease and it will turn out fine.

Pretty good stuff & easy. I always use bacon bits- so I just saute'd the onion in a little butter, then added the flour. Then chicken broth & bacon, etc. Definitely mash the potatoes quite well in the pan,(when done) & stir between mashings to bring up the potatoes from the bottom. Cook at least 30 minutes- maybe 35-40!

This potato soup is delicious. I used skim milk and upped the flour to 2 tablespoons. Very good and easy.
