"I came up with this soup after I had tried something similar at a restaurant," explains Stacy Bockelman, California, Missouri. "Using chicken bouillon and frozen hash browns makes it easy to fix. It's good with sourdough bread," she adds. It's also good for your pocketbook at only 47 cents a bowl.

"We recently had this at a friend's house and LOVED it. I watched how she made it and she told me where she got the recipe. This may well have become my new favorite go to potato soup, and I'm not even a cream cheese lover!! I will be fixing this for myself as soon as I get to pick up the ingredients I don't have. A definite keeper!"

"I just made this for Church tonight and I can not believe how awesome it is. The only thing I changed was to use bacon instead of ham. I am sure it would be great with ham also. LOVE it with bacon! So easy. So GOOD!"

"This is hands down the best potato recipe ever. My husband forbids me to make any other kind, even his mother's!! We like to crumble Ritz crackers in ours for a thickener and an extra zing."

"Delish! There are only 3 of us at home tonight for dinner so I prepared 1/2 the recipe. My picky teenage son informed me I need to double it. My husband says this recipe is a keeper. The only changes I made was I used bacon instead of ham and added lots of white pepper. We didn't have ham on hand and we like white pepper."
