This soup is sooo delicious. Baking the potatoes gives it a much better flavor than regular tater soup. I didn't have any green onions, so I chopped a large onion, sauteed it and added it to the soup along with 1 tablespoon minced garlic and 1 tablespoon chopped chives. My family started making "mmmmmming" noises when they tasted it and that is the absolute truth. I know this has become a favorite in our home. I can't wait to try some more of your recipes, Evelyn.

So this was a good base recipe! Made two changes...blend 1 potato along with some celery and carrot with 1/4 of the total milk you use to give it a nice creamy texture. Add some Tony Creole seasoning to give it a bit of zing.

Very yummy and filling. Halfed the recipe and it was plenty for us. No skins, only a few that fell in on accident.

This soup has a good taste, after you add a bunch of garlic powder, onion powder, seasoning salt and pepper. There is no way you can make this in a medium saucepan. It makes A LOT of soup and you have to use quite a bit more than 8 cups of milk to thin it out because it is very thick. We did like this and this is a good starting off recipe. Thank you evelyn/athens.

This recipe was pretty fast and very delicious. I loved it and it was thick enough and hearty enough for a bread bowl. Great flavor too. Thanks for posting.

Mine came out thick. Leftovers are like twice baked potatoes. Had a good flavor but I agree with another poster...no way could this be done in a medium sized pan and it needed tons of salt.

Loved it! Just needs a bit more seasoning to my taste, which I'll adjust next time I make it. I didn't put in the skins, but added saut?ed onions. Thank you for this great recipe, my kids want the leftovers for lunch.

Delicious! I did have to add some salt though, I probably didn't use enough bacon, my bf kept swiping it!
