  1. In a covered medium saucepan over high heat, combine the potatoes, onions, water and bouillon. Bring all to a boil and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Add the cheese spread and mash with a potato masher. Add more water if a thinner soup is desired.

Cheese spread with bacon isn't available in my corner of the world, so I used cream cheese instead. After mashing with a potato masher I didn't like the texture, so I put it through the blender. The result was a creamy, delicious soup. I was going to add bacon, but thought it tasted great the way it was. It's not a good diet food because of the high fat and calories, but it's an excellent comfort food and treat. The three servings produced were quite large.

I would have given this recipe 5 stars if it hadn't just turned into mashed potatoes when I made it. I used homemade chicken stock instead of water and bouillon but when I cooked it like the recipe called for the potatoes absorbed all the liquid and all I was left with was mashed potatoes. I used 3 medium sized potatoes and ended up adding about another 2 cups of stock. I also used an 8 oz block of cream cheese instead of the cheese spread which I added and then pureed the soup. I added 6 slices of bacon cooked crisp and chopped up. It tasted fantastic and everybody in my family loved it. Will definitely be making this one again.



This soup is wonderful, I used 4 cups of water, 3 chicken bouillon cubes. will make this often. I added cooked chopped broccoli.
