Reviews for Golden Potato Soup
"This is everyone's favorite potato soup. I have used shredded potatoes & evaporated milk with great results. Flavor is excellent!"
"This is a recipe that everyone will love!"
"Excellent!! Loved by All!!*****"
"We instantly fell in love with the unique taste of this soup!! Have made it over and over since we first tried a couple of years ago!"
"This is delicious. I double it, and use extra garlic plus regular salt, in place of the garlic salt. It's very easy, and even better the second day!"
"This is SOOO good! I usually do not like herbs, so I was hesitant adding them to the soup. Boy am I glad I did! They lend a subtle flavor that takes potato soup up a notch. I used real bacon pieces from a bag and you couldn't tell the difference. I can't wait to try this with fat-free evaporated milk instead of heavy cream."
"This is the best potato soup I have ever tasted. My boyfriend is a huge potato soup lover and has always said his mom makes the best and he loves Olive Garden just for their potato soup. When I made this for the first time he was amazed at its flavor. He requested it for his birthday and has recently told me that his mom's and Olive Garden's potato soup comes nowhere close to this one. It obviously has become a staple in our house, and rightfully so!"
"best potato soup ever!!!!!!"
