Best potato soup ever! I just use real bacon bits from a package or jar along with the cheese as toppings. Easy and so delicious.

Just made this for dinner and it was good. Hubby (aka Mr. Picky) asked me to make it again sometime. I gave it 4 stars for the recipe as it was written. I thought the leek flavor was too mild so I added about a tablespoon of dried onion flakes and then cooked it for the 5 minutes. FYI: I never can tell if my potatoes, onions, apples, etc. are medium or whatever so I looked up on the Internet and 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced equal about 1 and 1/3 cups.

Delicious and easy .... my favorite two words to describe a recipe! The blend of flavors was excellent and the consistency was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing!
