This was soooo good! I noticed the video was a little different from the written instructions. They shot the video using the Baby-Bow-Lady's suggestions, so I pretty-much followed that.
Many users mentioned the soup being too salty, so I decided to just use low-sodium chicken broth, no bullion.I also omitted the season salt, garlic and the red onion; didn't think it was needed since I would be using the green onions and dry ranch dressing.
Other than that I pretty-much followed the recipe. I was very generous with the bacon and I did chop and brown some smoked sausage into mine to make it more meaty. That may have added a bit of saltiness, but no more than I'd taste with a regular baked potato in my opinion.
One reviewer mentioned giving your soup more time to thicken after you add the half-in-half, and I was glad I saw it! That may be why it's turning out too thin for some. I thought I had ruined mine because it was so thin when it came time to add the half-in-half. But after a little more cooking and stirring time (mostly with the lid off) it thickened to the perfect consistency. Creamy, hearty and delicious. Even better then next day. My girlfriend was definitely impressed!
