"This was very good. I made it as part of my St. Patrick's Day menu. I used a few extra potatoes to add thickness to the soup instead of the flour and it turned out just fine. A good recipe!"

"I make this recipe all the time. It is so yummy and pretty easy. I sometimes sub straight chicken broth for the bouillon and quart of water - depends on what I have on hand and what makes life easier. Also, have been known to sub half-and-half or heavy whipping cream for the milk. I serve it with a generous sprinkling of cheese and bacon bits. In my opinion, it's the bacon bits that really take the flavor over the top for goodness. Enjoy. This is a wonderful go-to recipe that is super quick."
