I love potato soup and always looking for a way to jazz it up. This was delicious! I did not have whole milk so used 2% one cup and 1\2 one cup. At the last few minutes I added chunks of ham off a bone, from the night before. Really good flavor. I will definitely make this again..

Easy to make and delicious! Only changes in the recipe was to use skim milk and added 1/2t. Thyme and 1T parsley. I didn’t put finished soup in blender either. Will make again!

Very easy and excellent taste. Used medium cheddar cheese and diced the potatoes into 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes. Wondering if I can freeze some leftovers?l

Good start of the recipe but needed a lot more for my taste. Add added extra cheese and an extra potato, bacon, garlic, thyme and rosemary. It turned out delicious! Also I didn't puree the potatoes, I just cut them small. Cooking is fun, play with the recipe and make it your own.Nicole K. Milwaukee Wisconsin

Next time I would add more potatoes to make it a little thicker, but it was delicious. I made it as written.

This recipe was quick and easy - and very TASTY! Next time I will use more potatoes or a little less broth. I like my potato soup a little thicker. Easy to modify to one's own taste!
