The directions on this recipe are confusing. I did not drain the water off my potatoes before adding the other soup mix and therefore it came out really watery....make sure to drain your potatoes!

Fantastic! Much quicker than my normal recipe. My hints: To ensure it's not too thin, cover the potatoes with just *barely* enough water. I used powdered chicken broth instead of just water -- added a lot. A stalk or two of celery is a great addition. For more depth of flavor, add a dash of worchestershire sauce. Oh, and if you use red or yukon potatoes, you don't need to peel them!

Yum! I did doctor the recipe a bit to accomodate our tastes, but the base recipe is perfect. I don't like onions - left that out. I read some of the other reviews and thought that the celery salt sounded good. So I added salt, pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder to the potatoes while they were cooking. I then added a bit more pepper, celery salt with the dash of Thyme when I added in the milk/soup. I stirred in about 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese before serving. Garnished with additional shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. It was sooo very good. My boyfriend went back for seconds - that never happens. Later that night he told me he can't wait for lunch the next day so he can have leftovers. I will definitely be making this again and again! Thanks!
