Very quick and easy. I boiled potatoes in chicken broth, used more dill,salt, pepper and bacon for more flavor. Next time will add carrots and celery.

Great recipe! I added some garlic to the onion and butter, and a teaspoon of vegetable soup base. Next time I will make the potatoes smaller and add a small amount of chives.

I used garlic instead of onions, did not use dill weed. Threw in a block of chicken stock, and some cayenne pepper and a some italian seasonings to give it a bit different flavor. It was amazing!!! Definitely adding to the list of favorites.

Very tasty and easy! I have a few picky eaters so I made a couple changes. I doubled it, left out the onion and bacon, and added chicken bouillon granules to the water for extra flavor. I also threw in some shredded cheddar I had on hand. Then it still wasn't thick enough for me so I sprinkled in some mashed potato flakes to thicken it up. It turned out amazing! My husband raved about it. Definitely on my regular recipe rotation!

My husband and I were craving potato bacon soup so I thought I'd try this one as I had the ingredients on hand. I substituted chopped, fried turkey bacon for the bacon bits, which was delicious. I also kept the peel on the nugget potatoes, which added heartiness. I looked in my cupboard and spotted liquid smoke, so added a few dashes (1-2 T.) and a few pinches of chill powder at the end- DELISH! Definitely making this recipe again. The liquid smoke made the soup VERY satisfying.
