What an excellent recipe! We were sitting here watching "While You Were Out" being lazy - neither of us wanted to cook. Suddenly I had the urge for Potatoe Soup. I picked the first 5 star that I came across. Added an extra cup of chicken broth and instead of bacon I used turkey bacon - very nice! I also added 2 Tbsp of Parsley Flakes. Thanks Karen, this recipe will definately be part of menu!

I made this tonight for dinner and it was fantastic! I added some grated cheddar cheese on top of each bowl for and added touch.. By the way, my husband says we should rate this as 6 out of 5 and recommend it for a weekly treat...he loved it!!

Just about perfect. It could use a little red pepper flakes but it could not be more simple to make. This has now replaced the old family favorite recipe that I have used for 25 years.

love this soup! I added the bacon at the end using turkey bacon, and i also put this in a crockpot once the potatoes and soup mixture were cooked. Let cook a little bit more in the crock pot to keep it nice and warm! My whole family loved it!

Oh, this was so delicious-- and I'm picky! I like my potato soup creamy and not thin or watery and this fit the bill perfectly. I used heavy whipping cream, and instead of bacon (I'm all bacon'ed out in my life right now) I used browned Jimmy Dean sausage. When I drained the potato water, I added chicken bouillon and used that as my broth. I halved the garlic (personal preference--I like to be able to kiss my husband) and added the optional butter. I didn't think it needed any added salt at, but i peppered the heck out of it-- again, personal preference. Simply divine. Thank you so much! I'm so thrilled with it!

Made this soup, very good shared with our friends. Thanks for posting it. I used cereal cream instead of heavy cream, was still delicious.

AMAZING. This is my first try at soup. It was almost impossible to mess up. My husband wanted it creamy and thick for an afternoon with the flu, and that is what he got, but if you want it thinner as a side dish this is easy to make happen as well. The flavors blended well together, no salt was added. I left the corn out and added pepperjack cheese for a little bite. This will be added to the Fall and Winter must haves. I am going to try and freeze some and see how it comes out as well. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipes.
