Reviews for Bacon Corn Soup

After reading other reviews of this soup, I was anxious to try it. I followed the directions as stated in recipe. I thought the soup was not very flavorful. Too many calories for something without a lot of flavor was my overall impression. :(
The directions in this recipe are very clear and easy to follow. As a side not if you don't like the soup super cheesy cut down on the valveeta cheese. Other than that the soup ended up just perfect.
Was very good, I too used shredded cheddar cheese. I also used 3 cups of milk rather than the cup of half n' half to save on calories and replaced the flour with 1/8 cup of cornstarch as well as used canned corn rather than frozen. My family ate it up, and I especially liked that I was able to pull this soup together with ingredients that I had in the pantry and fridge. Is a keeper for sure.
