I've made this recipe before, and it was fantastic. My mother in law made a variation of this same recipe. It was DELICIOUS! She added bacon (because my husband insists on meat at every meal), and it was a great touch. She also added sour cream, about a small container's worth.Excellent recipe. Thank you.

What a great soup for my 1 year old! I only blend had the soup though, so that it is still a little chunky!

My family of eight loves this tasty and economical soup, and we make it regularly. We sometimes add bacon bits to our individual bowls for extra flavor. (Note-- It's nearly impossible to make something that everyone in this family loves.) Thanks for the recipe!

I've made this several times both at home and at my mothers&grandmothers house. gram hated it mom said it was ok but needed more potatoes(both very picky eaters) My children beg for more and want it all the time.Hubby and my self can't get enough ,the kids eat it all before we get a second bowl. Definitely a keeper.

this was a good soup, but i changed the recipe. i dident have green onions so i used half of a large yellow onion, then i didnt fry the onions in the pan with butter, i just cooked them in with the potaotoes, i cut back on the milk and i left a small portion of just bearley mashed poatotes, instead of blending them all, to make the soup have more texture. it was defaneetley watery, not as thick as i would like it thhough. but it would make an awesome base for differant homemade soups! :) also goes good with finger sandwitches!

This soup is so easy to make and it's delicious! I made it for our "Cultural Diversity" potluck at work and this was the only dish that didn't have to be packed up for leftovers.
