We loved this with a few changes. I used two cans of diced potatoes and milk instead of half and half. I loved the seasoning. I added about 1 1/2 of cheddar cheese and 3 ounces of cooked bacon directly to the soup. Hubby took about half the soup and added minced clams to it and some old bay and he liked it even more. Even my boys told me I could make this again. So easy and good!

Great! I used 4 large baking potatoes I had microwaved the day before for this. I cut the recipe in half & used 1 stalk of thinly sliced celery and many chopped celery leaves and not as much onion. Syco chicken base with water and milk.Basil & thyme was wonderful! I topped two bowls with minced bacon, shredded parmesan cheese and green onion. The other bowl will no garnish. I didn't have any half & half so used milk but I didn't want it thick like mashed potatoes so left the instant out. . I will make again, just this way. The cornstarch was enough to make the consistency just right! Thanks for posting!

I have to add my opinion on this, FANTASTIC!!!!! If you are looking for a change, this is it! Added a few more potatoes, threw in some cheddar cheese and added bacon to the soup and it was great! Reheated wonderfully! Very filling....

This soup was quite good! Nice flavor and good texture, though I did have to add considerably more half-and-half than the recipe called for (before I added more, the consistency was close to mashed potatoes). We will probably make this again.

This was excellent, Luvs2EatMeat! The "stick to your ribs" soup's texture is velvety smooth, without being pasty or heavy. I omitted the onions since I didn't have any. My favorite part was the cubed potato in the soup, which didn't break apart. I will be making this again! Roxygirl

This recipe turned out great and my company loved it as did my family. It really was a lot more work than "regular" potato soup though. I'm still not sure if the extra time it took is worth the taste. I would reccomend this recipe to anyone who has a little extra time or left over baked potatoes.
