This soup ROCKS!! I can't say I followed the recipe exactly because I choose to use a few more green onions that what the recipe calls for. :o) I LOVE green onions and I LOVE this soup! Thanks for posting it, I will never buy canned potato soup again! :o)

Totally fabulous!! I doubled the recipe and added a tsp of herbs de provence and a couple carrots. The soup spent all day in the crockpot. An hour before dinner, I mashed up the potatoes and carrots. Fresh salad and buns, I can't believe how yummy this recipe was.

I found this recipe on the Kraft site a few years ago. Super easy too. It's the only one I use. You simply can't stop eating it, it's THAT good.
