A great, hearty and filling soup! I also served it with bacon sprinkled on top. Perfect for those chilly winter nights!

I already have a dynamite Broccoli Cheese Potato soup recipe, but I wanted to give this one a try. While it is good, it was the family's consensus not to make it again. There is nothing wrong with the recipe, per se, it is just a matter of which recipe we enjoy most. It is an easy recipe to do. I did use fresh hash browns and it worked well.

Can you cook on high and shorten the time?

I made this yesterterday. I added a yellow chopped onion with the hasbrowns. It was wonderful. Husband said its a keeper. I will definitely make it again.

I made this today, however I added some better than bouillon chicken flavoring, used full fat sour cream and without the bacon. This recipe is a keeper. Wish I would have thought of the sourdough bowls. What a great harvest time soup. This one goes in the recipe card file.

This does sound really good -- but I don't have a slow cooker (or room to store one). Wish there had been directions for those of us who want to make this on the stove. Maybe another site can tell me how to convert this temperature and time wise? I'll be back to really rate it when I've made it. Thanks for the recipe!

I made as described, except used double the broccoli florets. This was absolutely delicious. Everyone loved it. I served it in sourdough bowls too. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
