This soup is sooo yummy, and quick and eacy to make. I even made mine a lighter version by using skim milk and using only enough butter to saute the onions and celery instead of the full 2 tbsp. The chicken broth gives the soup a yummy buttery flavour without all the fat. I also emptied the entire batch into my blender at once and didn't have any problems and only needed one pot. I will be making this again and again.

very easy,very good. I doubled up on quantities - adapts well for gluten free diet < the cheese, bouillion for the broth and the seasonings need to be GF, omitted croutons >as the pot was nice and clean after the potatoes were cooked I took the easy way out by using a potato masher and finishing off with my hand held electric blender right in the same pot.the results were probably not as smooth as the original way but acceptable and this saved on time and washing up!!!! reheats well,great flavour-- a keeper.

This is an excellent, rich and creamy soup! I went all out and used real cream in this. Heavenly! This one is a definite keeper!! Thanks Ginny!

Great tasting soup Ginny! Made today for a quick lunch when MIL and cousin coming over. Just felt like eating in rather than going out. Soup fit the bill since it's quite cold outside and I found myself without meat in the freezer (except some bacon). I didn't have celery, but subbed some carrots and used skim milk. Used the immersion blender to blend some of it and left some chunky. Garnished with some cheese and crumbled bacon. Thanks so much for posting!

Potato soup is one of my favorite foods from my childhood. I have tried to make it many times and each recipe was a disappointment. Until I found this one. This is the best potato soup recipies I have found. My husband also loved it.

I thought this was easy to put together and tasted good. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of creole seasoning and blended all but about 1/4 cup of the soup so there was some chunk to it. Really warming on a rainy night!

Delicious soup according to my family! Broke my blender, but if there's a meal that's worth breaking a blender over, it's this one. LOL! It wasn't long for this world anyways. I didn't use celery, because my son hates it and eyeballed the onions, but put a little more in than called for, I'm sure. I also used skim milk, because that's all I had and it worked out wonderfully. Next time, I may even sneak and use part skim cheese to make it lighter on their waists. I did save out about 1/4 of the soup and added that to the final pot so that there were some chunks. The family loved the consistency of the mostly blended soup with the chunks, so it was great! Thank you!

My new default soup recipe. Subbed in carrots for celery since that's what I had, still tasted wonderful. Used skim milk and three small potatoes (washed but unpeeled, I'm a lazy cook!), consistency was perfect!

This is a great soup, with a wonderful velvety consistency. The only reason I'm giving it four stars and not five is because it needs something - maybe a dash of Tabasco, a bit of Creole seasoning, or possibly some bacon bits on top. I'll definitely use this recipe again and just add a little something. Thanks for a keeper!
