Terrific!!Made this soup for Xmas Eve get-together and everyone wanted the recipe. I didn't add amt of salt and pepper from recipe, I added it near the end a little at a time and kept tasting it. I also added 3/4 stick of butter, it added a creamy, buttery taste to it.I put it in a crockpot to keep it warm(amount from recipe filled crockpot perfectly). I served it in round bread bowls, hollowed out, and topped with crumbled bacon and shredded chedder cheese. I'll be making this one for years to come, it's great!!!!!

I spent 4 hours making this soup and I had to throw it away! It tasted like melted pepper... If you make this soup DO NOT follow the directions about the pepper! I was awful--

my family loves potatoe soup however the ratio of ingredients was alittle off way too much pepper i also used chicken broth instead of the boullion cubes and omitted the the green pepper and the celery as we do not like it the garlic i used powder in stead of minced and only to taste so it was not overpowering other than that it was relativley good
