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!

I just finished making this and it turned out really good was wondering if it would be thick enough and it was perfect. I added a handfull of frozen corn and that seemed to top it off! Will make this again, it was such a quick and easy recipe!

Very good. Everyone that's had it loves it and wants the recipe! It's good with bacon bits sprinkled on it just before eating.
