      I really liked this soup. I've made it several times now. The first time I put some bacon in it and realized it really didn't need it. The second time it was a tad bland so I just sprinkled salt on it. Thanks for posting this recipe it is a new favorite! Oh, I used 4 tbsp flour. This soup has always come out nice a creamy/thick for me.

      This recipe was just ok for me. I am used to a creamy, mashed potato type of potato soup. This was more runny than I am used to...and I prefer sour cream and half & half...this recipe calls for evap. milk which was different. It was good, but not great for me...
