This was really tasty, however I didn't know if or when you should add the bacon, so I added it with the potatoes, it was so creamy yumm..

Tastes wonderful! I added some cheddar cheese, which topped it off. Once, I used cream of mushroom instead of bullion and milk, and it was just as good.

I made the LAZIEST version of this soup imaginable, and it still came out fabulous. I used half a pound of bacon (about 8 strips?) that I had cooked up earlier in the week, crumbled and stuck in the freezer. I subbed the onion for a tablespoon of onion powder and the minced garlic for a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder (my very picky daughter does not like chunks of onion in anything). Started off by putting the water, potato, bacon, boullion cubes, garlic powder and onion powder in the pot together, then followed the recipe from there. Added an eighth of a teaspoon of ground white pepper right before serving.

I love this! I added a few chopped baby carrots and a celery stalk with the onion. I used 1 1/2 TBSP cornstarch instead of flour so it would be GF. And I didn't have evaporated milk, so I substituted one cup of whole milk. It turned out great. It's an easy, hearty, delicious soup.

Very good. Replaced evaporated milk with powdered milk. Evaporated milk is milk minus 60 percent water. 350 Ml = 3/4 Cup powder and 1 1/2 Cup water or twelve oz. At 60 percent. Still very creamy plus lowers the fat.
