Very good basic recipe-have to add spices accding to your tastes..2nd time making recipe, I added a can of Cream of Chicken soup at the beginning, and also diced onions. Spices used: Old Bay, Garlic salt, reg. salt, garlic powder, white pepper, dill weed, 2 bay leaves, Cavender's seasoning. Very very good with 'real' bacon bits & shredded cheddar added too. Top w/sour cream & more cheese if you want!

I like potato soup but I really didn't care for this one. It was easy to prepare, thinkened up real nice but it just didn't have any flavor. Salt and pepper helped a bit, but it needs something more in my opinion. If you like plain tasting soup this will work for you if you don't keep looking.

This soup was good. When I printed the recipe it called for eight pounds of potatoes so I made much more than called for. I think it should have read eight cups?

I opted for vegetable bouillon instead of chicken and olive oil instead of butter. Salt and pepper and garlic to taste. The soup was wonderful and hearty. It was almost a garlic baked potato soup and delicious!

Simple and good recipe. My pickiest child loved it. I will use this recipe again. Also, I did use 8 cups instead of 8lbs potato. I also added some velveeta to it about a half hour before serving.

I added a few dashes of Mrs. Dash's Onion and Herb Powder when preparing the soup and a few more dashes about an hour b4 i served the soup. I put bacon bits, scallions and some cheddar on the side for folks to garnish the soup. Huge hit at the office food day.

Yummy! I added two carrots sliced up and used Knorr Leek soup mix instead of the other seasonings. For sure the 8 POUNDS of potatoes has to be a typo; I used 8 potatoes. Before adding the milk (I cut it down to 1 cup of milk and 1/3 cup of flour) I scooped out the carrots, then mashed the potato soup mixture; then put the carrots back in, added the milk and flour. Topped with cheddar cheese and served! Great! Would make again!

This was a real life saver when my family and I got snowed in for 2 days. I added a little bit of cooked bacon and "squeeze" cheese the second time I made it and it made a terrific recipe just that much better!!
