Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and added sauteed broccoli. Thank you, Mark, for sharing this recipe.

I thought this soup was incredible! As with any soup, I really struggle to make the recipe EXACTLY as written. I halved the recipe (because I was only having one friend over for lunch), but I kept the amount of onion, celery, and pepper the same. I think this is really necessary for the seasoning to be right for my tastes. I didn't have any trouble with the consistency as some other reviewers did. I will definitely make again, as will my friend, who took home the recipe.

Disappointing. I made a double batch because I had some Cheddar Potato soup at a local restaurant and couldn't wait to try this one out...but it was way too bland. I spent an hour adding all kinds of things, like Worcestershire, garlic powder, more salt and pepper, and anything else I though would give this some flavor. Beside the blandness, my particular soup was too starchy. That might be more my fault than the recipe, but I used 3-1/2 large yukon gold potatoes...about 8 cups (remember, this was a double batch), so I don't think it was an ingredient problem. I'll attempt this soup again, but with a different recipe.

A little too mushy and bland for me..I added some cooked cubed potatoes and topped with green onions..the base is good though

To: HiThere.....Just wondering....how do you know what "male cow lactate" tastes like? And, by the way, what IS a "male cow"?

This wasted all of my good cheddar cheese, and tasted of male cow lactate. Please fix it, thanks!

I followed the instructions and ended up with stringy clumps of cheese.
