"This recipe was quick and easy - and very TASTY! Next time I will use more potatoes or a little less broth. I like my potato soup a little thicker. Easy to modify to one's own taste!"
"I just finished making this and it turned out really good was wondering if it would be thick enough and it was perfect. I added a handfull of frozen corn and that seemed to top it off! Will make this again, it was such a quick and easy recipe!"
"Very good. Everyone that's had it loves it and wants the recipe! It's good with bacon bits sprinkled on it just before eating."
