"I made this for my daughter, son-in-law, and grand daughter (who is 1), and they absolutely loved it!!!! Its a keeper recipe for sure!!! I changed a couple of things, like I do to every recipe. I didn't have 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese...I had an 8 oz block of pepper jack I grated and some pepper velveeta slices (about 8) I used. I added some thinly sliced celery and 2 or 3 finely chopped garlic cloves with the onions and carrots. I had some whipping cream I needed to use, so I used about 2 1/2 cups 2 percent milk and 1/2 c. whipping cream. I used about 4 cups of potatoes because my kids love the potatoes and used about 3 cups of ham. Served it with some mile high homemade biscuits and they all three pigged out!!!!"
"Great soup, tasted just liked scalloped potatoes and ham. I also used chicken broth instead of the water and bullion. Was afraid it would curdle while waiting for the potatoes to cook but it didn't. I will make again, thanks!"
"Made this tonight for dinner! It has been snowing all day and sounded like it was worth a try. It was! Fantastic dinner will definitely make again! Super easy to make!"
"The whole family loved this. Great for those cold winter days."
"This recipe was easy and delicious. We made it last night for dinner. Definite keeper to make again on a chilly winter night. I was slightly confused on the cheese because 3 cups would be 24 ounces, but the recipe says 12 ounces...I used 2 8oz bags and it was fine. I'm not sure in our house there is such a thing as too much cheese! :)"
