"One of the ladies in our church quilting group brought this savory potato soup to a meeting," recalls Anna Mayer from Ft. Branch, Indiana. It's easy to assemble in the morning, then cook all day. Cream cheese and a sprinkling of bacon provide richness.

"This was OK but I like my potato soup much thicker. I even added cornstarch, tried mashing some of the potatoes and added shredded cheddar cheese to try and thicken it some and it was still to watery. It also took a lot of time to get the cream cheese to blend in. I had used the whipped cream cheese hoping it would work better but it did not. This didn't taste bad but I don't believe I'll make this recipe again. I have other potato soup recipes that I know I like better. I would definitely recommend, if you like your potato soup on the thicker side, reducing the amount of chicken broth."

"TI LOVE this recipe, it is so quick and easy to make and one of our favorite recipes, I make it on on the stove and its done in no time. I use real bacon bits its so much easier then cooking my own bacon. This is a must try."

"Amazing recipe!! My whole family loved it! I added about 2 cups of chopped, fully-cooked ham instead of bacon, and topped with chopped green onions! Very good recipe!"

"My family LOVES this recipe! I made it at a Craft Retreat this weekend up in the mountains for 30 women and it was a HIT! I'm now sharing with all of them who want to make it! You can also add a couple ears of roasted fresh corn of the cob and some celery...and its wonderful! I have also thrown in some sweet potatoes for color and great flavor....I top mine with cheese too!"
