My son just got braces and cannot eat solid food. He loved the soup! I put about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese since I find most recipes call for more than I like. I used a little more milk, but our family likes thick soup. More can always be added. Enjoy!

Thick and creamy soup! The parmesan cheese gives such a great flavor. I used only 4 tbsp of butter and reduced-fat cream cheese. I mashed the potatoes, leaving just a few lumps. I love thick soups, so the texture was perfect for me. I garnished with chives and cheddar cheese. Thanx for sharing. A keeper for sure!

This soup is really nice. I have a very picky vegetarian daughter who loves it; I'm not a vegetarian, but I love it too. Not expensive, really easy to make, almost no mess, makes a good quantity. A definite keeper.

I tried this recipe tonight. I made a few adjustments: I used about 6 oz whipping cream (had no cream cheese). I used 4 tb of butter instead of 6, and also used about 5 or 6 cloves of garlic that i sliced thinly. I also added a bit of vegetable base to the boiling water for the potatoes. I only used about 3/4 C of freshly grated parmesan. At the time I added the milk I added back to the pot about a cup and a half of the potato stock. Results: a very nice, smooth and creamy soup...Very tasty, I did have to add a bit more salt than was called for, and I also added just a pinch of celery seed. I thought the liquid was just right, however I prefered to cook it a bit longer to let all the flavors meld, but that will also happen as it sits in the fridge over night. It was very easy and very quick to make and that's just perfect for me. Thanks for a great recipe. I will keep this near the front of my recipe folder! And, next time I will try it with the cream cheese.

This is a perfect potato soup for my family!!! I did add another 1/2 cup of milk (but just so it would last a bit longer....) All the kids and myself absolutely loved it!!! That makes 5 thumbs up! So rich, and so satisfying...Totally a meal in itself (although I did make crescent rolls too.) Thank you, Junebug! This is a definite "wintery comfort soup" that I will make over and over!!! :)

A bit too thick to be what I would consider a soup, this had the consistency of runny mashed potatoes. I ended up doubling the amount of milk called for and it was much better. The taste is very good- parmesan is just right! Another time I may reduce the amount of milk and make mashed potatoes out of this. Thanks for posting!

Very good soup!! I used about 2 cups milk to make it how I wanted it. I think next time I may just mash a portion of the potatoes and leave the rest as chunks. We topped it with bacon bits and scallions and had grilled steaks with it. Great meal. I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today!
