Boy, my husband loved this! I added some celery and chicken base, cooked the potatoes in 6 cups of water and added 2 cups of skim milk in place of the last 2 cups of water right before I stirred in the rub noodles. Hubby ate three huge bowls full and wouldn't let me throw away the dab of soup left in the kettle; plans on eating it for lunch today. A good 'old school" potato soup and a definite winner. Thanks!

This is a terrific soup! I used a combination of Yukon Gold and red skinned potatoes and probably used more potatoes than the recipe stated. Also, as a reviewer suggested, I cooked my potatoes in a chicken broth. In addition,I smashed some of the potatoes. It was thick, rich and wonderful. Will make it again! Thanks Jeanie Bean

Pure comfort food! Went together in a snap. I added some minced parsely at the end for color.

This soup is amazingly simple for how great it tastes. I did tweak the formula a bit. I made a 4 serving pot of this soup and added about half a can of evaporated milk just after i put in the drop noodles. I also used more egg because the dough was too dry and added sage to the broth. Fab!

I love this recipe. I have made it three times for my family. I usually use chicken broth and add chopped celery instead of celery salt.

I've been looking for this recipe for years. This is the way my mom made potato soup. It's delcious -- one of those recipes that is much better than it sounds.

Really good, I have made it twice already in a few weeks time. I added 2 chicken boulloin cubes, carrots, and celery to give it a brothier taste.

I grew up on this soup. My grandmother and my mother made it, and now I make it. We never used a recipe, but this gets guaranteed results every time. The ultimate comfort food!
