Wonderful! Very thick, creamy, cheesey and satisfying. I only used 3 slices of bacon and used low-fat milk and Velveeta. I finely chopped some fresh celery because I had no celery seeds. I loved the green onions for garnish. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Even if it's really not the "best-ever" potato soup, it's gotta be darn close! ;) Thanx for shring it.

This is the best potato soup. I found this recipe several years ago and have been making it ever since.
