Followed this recipe to the T. Thumbs up from all 7 family members. Keeping this recipe in the brain bank.

It was a hit with my family! I added garlic to the onions and (more) butter, and I skipped the chicken bullion (Lent and all…). I also added a little basil and some quick egg dumplings since my mom always had that in hers. Delicious!

I mashed the potato soup with a potato masher instead of using my blender because everyone was so hungry and couldnt wait and it still came out at just the right thickness. I also sprinkled chopped fried turkey pastrami on top and skipped the cheese.

I added 5 cloves of chopped garlic and 1 tablespoon of diced ginger to the onion (used 1/2 cup) and added fried bacon and green onions at the end. It was amazing! The hubby loved it! I'm definitely keeping this one in my recipe book and will make it again!

LOVE this recipe. It's quick, easy and tastes awesome. Love that it doesn't use flour as a thickener. I do add sharp cheddar cheese to it when it's done. I let it melt, then stir it up. This is a keeper for sure.

Loved it, but need to cook onions longer as they were not done.

This is absolutely delicious! We used 1/2 cup onion and 2 1/2 cups of milk as well. Winner with the kids and the adults!!

I used more butter, added bacon (a bit of the grease), sour cream, cheese, and red pepper flakes and its one of the best things I've eaten in a while.

I thought this recipe was easy and very tasty. The only changes I made was at the end, I added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup cooked bacon, crumbled. Yum, my whole family lived it!!!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have changed the time to 25-30 seconds.

Mild and somewhat bland, I thought, so I punched it up with a dash of turmeric, another of smoky paprika, and some chives. Right before serving, stirred in a bit of sour cream. Improved the flavor quite a bit. Also, the recipe calls for blending the soup for 25-30 minutes. I think they meant 25-30 seconds.

Loved it, however i added bacon and used 2 and half cups milk and a 1/2 cup of onion...it was so good!

I made it today for lunch for my husband and me and he loved it! Very creamy and surprisingly flavorful, despite the fact that only a few ingredients are needed. This one's going in my recipe notebook :) Thank you!

I did add some bacon, garlic and a half a can of celery soup. And it was delicious. Great recipe. Thanks

Rating

Absolutely delicious! I felt that it needed a little something more so I added crumbled up well done bacon. It made it that much better. Without the bacon it was very good, but for that extra flavor the bacon made it perfect. My husband said it is now his favorite potato soup!

found this recipe,delicious!

This recipe was off the chain but I put a little garlic power and corn and it was very good.

This is good, but I did make a few changes, used low sodium chicken broth, unsalted butter, used the broth the potatoes and onions were cooked in,didn't fry the onions, and used an imersion blender to make the soup smooth,
