Reviews forPotato Bacon Chowder
"This soup is good on a cold winters day. I doubled the recipe to get a pot of soup. It calls for a lot of bacon and I used 3/4 of what it called for. I also used one can of cream of chicken and a half a can of cream of mushroom, as I didn't have two cans of cream of chicken. My husband and Son loved this soup."
"This is quite good and so easy. My husband loved it!"
"I liked this recipe. It was extremely easy to follow, and it turned out tasting very good. Even my picky 5-year-old ate it (he loves bacon). Thank you!"
"It was ok. A little to rich for my taste. Next time I think I will substitute the milk, sour cream and cream of chicken for half and half."
