Reviews for Creamy Potato and Cheese Soup
"It felt like it needed some spice, but it was good. I would make it again."
"Excellent!!! The whole family loved it."
"Wow, my son made this and invited us over for dinne! Delicious, it tastes like there's cream in the soup and was surprised to find out my son used 2% milk not heavy cream. Definitely a keeper plus my son is a great cook, thanks to his many talents and Taste of Home! He also said the recipe was easy and he had all the ingredients at home. Yummy!!"
"delicious!- super easy and fast!"
"This has become a staple recipe in my house. Everyone loves it & there's never any leftovers!"
"Excellent flavor! Reminded me of times with my grandma. She makes some of the best potato soup."
"Very tasty recipe with a really good home cooked flavor. Although we did make a few changes: I used cream of chicken since there was no cream of mushroom in the house and we used a whole cup of Velveeta since the family loves cheese. Great soup."
"I love how creamy and full of flavor this delicious soup is... I'm definitely adding this one as a favorite!"
"great soup would make again -i tweeked it a little - i added more veggies 2 more cups of milk more flour --i didn't cook potatoes ahead of time and they were perfect- i added some ham, a little thyme and fresh garlic -instead of cream of mushroom i added cream of celery. It was outstanding."
"This was very easy and quick to put together, and very tasty. I added 2 small cloves of garlic (minced) and double the celery, carrot, and onion. My kids even had seconds! A very good go to recipe to put a nice homemade meal on the table without needing too much time Cook the potatoes in the microwave to save more time."
"Very good and easy to make. I added crumbled bacon and more cheese to the top. YUM."
"I combined this recipe with another by substituting evaporated milk. I reduced the potato amount & omitted the carrots & celery, but put in celery seed. My husband just ate the entire contents of the pot!"
"Next time I would add a little bacon just to give but it was simple & delicious and I would make it again"
"This was a great soup that the whole family loved. My son can't have straight milk so I substituted rice milk and it worked perfectly, I did have to add a little corn startch to make it a bit thicker. I also added the potatos cut up and uncooked when I added the milk so they would stay firm. It turned out perfect and the cheese added brought it all together."
