"I have tried so many potato soup recipes - but this one tops the charts! Definately double or triple this recipe if it is served as the main dish. I did tweek it a little based on other reviews. I ..." See morefried bacon and set it aside to top the soup when serving -- then browned the onion in the bacon fat. I added a can of Campbell's cheddar soup and used only half of the shredded cheese. I also omitted the extra salt. The cheese and chicken broth had enough salt already. I put half of the potato/broth mixture into a blender, but saved some potatoes cubed to give it some texture. I have a big family and they all loved it!"
"i've made this soup at least three times now. instead of pureeing the potatoes i mash them somewhat in the pot with a potato masher. also, i add 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk instead of the heav..." See morey cream. this soup is excellant!"
"This soup was indeed delicious! But I can't leave well enough alone, so I did make a few changes (or should I say, additions) to the recipe, including a few slices of bacon which I fried until crispy ..." See more(for topping), and the reserved bacon drippings which helped cook the onions. I also put in about 1/2 cup diced celery and one small diced carrot to the onions. Like some other reviewers, I also only removed half of the potatoes to be pureed, since I wanted some chucky bits left. I also put in more broth, just to make it a little "soupier." But, it would have been great without these additions! I received highest reviews from my mother when I surprised her with a freshly made, hot bowl of this for lunch. She immediately called me back to exclaim, "Best potato soup ever!" And she is a wonderful cook, and grew up eating potato soups made by other great cooks as well! I couldn't have been happier! I wish I had made double the amount! I have tried various potato soups before... some which were passable, and some which were great, but this is the best yet. This is a sure-fire recipe, and would be great as is or expouned upon. It was delicious topped with crumbled bacon and chives, and I look forward to eating the remainder at supper tonight. Thanks!"
