Very tasty and really easy to make! Made it without any changes. Just like everyone said, it's a little bland. Would probably try to add more ingredients next time. This is a great potato soup base though!
This is the first recipe I've ever usef for a crockpot, unbelievable is the best word I Can use. Its such a simple amazing recipe. I did add sweet potato to mine though, overall I'm extremely happy thanks for a great idea!
I added the white pepper, basil and thyme. Great taste! The only change I would make is less broth or more potatoes for a thicker soup.
We gave this 3 stars as it was a great base to work from. We followed the first most helpful review and added 1 1/2 tsp. white pepper, 1 tsp. dried basil, and 1/2 tsp. thyme and that perked things up a little. Thanks stacylu for a great base soup to work from. Will probably drop the pepper a little and today added shredded leftover BBQ chicken for lunch - yum!
This was a good base recipe but my husband and I both felt like it was missing something. I added shredded carrots, bacon, garlic powder and pepper about an hour before serving and that helped a little but we still felt like something was missing compared to the potato chowders we get in restaurants. I will have to fuss with this a little to find the perfect combination for our family. Thanks stacylu for a good start.
I followed the exact recipe and it was YUMMY!!!! After taking his first bite my husband said you will be making this again...right? I may change it out with holiday ham next time.
Thanks for a great recipe!!!!!!
It was just ok on it's own...definitely add stuff to it because I found it a bit bland. I'm going to make it again and follow some of the other reviewer's recommendations.
I made this chowder today...and found it very tasty. I think next time I will add some ham to it.
I think a dollop of sour cream...along with some chopped green onion will send it over the top.
I very good and filling dish. I will be making this chowder again and again...a real comfort food.
This was so delicious. DH ate this and asked if I had bought it at Whole Foods. He finally believed I made it after I showed him the recipe. I used a jar of Hormel Bacon Pieces, you know I am lazy but kept to the original recipe. The chowda was hearty and flavorful and was a great meal with a green salad and some crusty bread. Thanks so much for posting.
Added a can of corn to cooking time and shredded cheddar cheese with the topping. I also thickened it a bit with some flour... but it is an awesome recipe!
