peeled and cubed potatoes

chopped fresh parsley
This is a good potato soup if you make a few alterations. I omitted the celery. I added about 1 cup of cheese, a package of bacon (fried and crumbled) and added a few green onions. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Once I added those things, it was extremely good. I will make this again (but only with those alterations!)
I'm sorry, but this soup recipe is not warrant 5 stars. I followed this recipe to the "T" and found it very bland. After adding wine, whole thyme leaves, nutmeg I found it much improved!
This is a great potato soup and my family and friends have all loved it. I do make a few changes to make it even better. Cook about 10 pieces of bacon in the oven and use about 2 tablespoons of the oil from the bacon to add to the soup. Crumble the bacon to add as a garnish on top of the soup when you serve. Also add Mild Cheddar Cheese on top of soup and make sure it's about 2 tablespoons of cheese and bacon that you add on top. That makes the soup really good and everyone asks for seconds. Thanks!!
Also - if you don't have celery which I didn't - add 2 to 3 shakes of celery salt instead.
A fantastically versital potatoe soup! With 12 of us living in our home I have to satisfy many different tastes! I crumbled bacon and shredded some cheddar and put it on the table for those that wanted it. Me and the kids loved it the way it was but my husband loves more spice. I added a teaspoon of thyme and some onion powder to his portion of the soup and set his favorite HOT sauce beside him so he could add what he wanted. EVERYONE was happy because the original is so easy to adapt to the individual. I served this soup w/a recipe I also got on this sight called CHEESE Biscuit I...Satisfying and filling and easy and YUMMY! I give 5 stars to any recipe that can please that many of us at once!
Good flavor. I sauteed the celery and onion first in 2 tbsps of the butter and I used 1 cup of shredded cheddar instead of 1 cup of half and half. I didn't think it needed any more cream and I like cheddar cheese in potato soup.
fantastic. I wouldn't change a thing. Been using this recipe for a couple years now.
This recipe was great. I did change a few things, though. I used minced onion instead of fresh, and added extra boullion. Also added bacon, and instead of half of the butter, i used bacon grease. it added a great flavor to the soup. Also, since i can't stay away from the spice cabinet, i added garlic powder, onion powder, and more celery salt. At the end when you add half & half, I used evaporated milk instead. It was really good. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
Wow!!!! This was really good! I've never made potato soup before. I made it exactly as the recipe said except I used evaporated milk instead of half and half, just because I needed to use some up. I also added a little cheddar cheese and bacon bits! I served with Chedder Biscuits as suggested. Oh and I didn't peel the potatoes cause I'm lazy. :)
