      I think this may be the best potato soup I've ever made! I also used bacon and only 8 oz cream cheese and it was a perfect consistency. I also used green onion instead of white as that was all I had on hand but I think I would do it the same way next time. Thanks for a wonderful and easy recipe!

      Fabulous and easy! I used bacon in the soup as well as bacon and chopped scallions for garnish. I only used 8oz of cream cheese and I still had a rich, creamy soup without any heavy cream! This is sure to warm you up inside. Thanx!

      Delicious! I don't mash my potatoes at all, just leave them in small cubes. My entire family loves this! It's a little rich, but yummy. (We use bacon)
