Excellent! I used 1% milk instead of the heavy cream, lowfat mozarella instead of the cheddar, and used real garlic since it had it on hand, but followed everything to par. Less calories in my version, but still A+ taste. Thank you for posting!

This was absolutely wonderful! I used 2% milk instead of heavy cream, and I added the cheese as a garnish to let it melt in with a dollop of sour cream and some chopped green onions. Way better than a loaded baked potato!! I think a can of smoked baby clams would be another great addition. Thanks for the recipe.

This was delish! I did what I always said I wouldn't do but I "tweeked" it a bit. For the chicken stock I used half chicken broth and half chicken soup base(bouillon), I too used 1% milk instead of the cream and microwaved the potatoes, and I did not use red pepper sauce. Finally, before I added the milk and bacon I pureed the soup to make it extra creamy. My LH, who is usually fussy about his soups, loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

This was really good and filling. I thought it was a little spicy, though, so next time I'll make it with less red pepper sauce. Thanks for posting!

This was excellent, warm, creamy and simple just what we were wanting on this cold winter night. I followed it almost exactly - used fresh garlic (sauted w/the onion) instead of powder, swiss chees instead of chedder (personal preferance) and only used 1/2 cup of the cheese and 1/2 cup of cream cheese. Served with crusty Italian bread, cold, crisp white wine and fresh sliced tomatoes and yum - a great winter meal. Thanks Millie for posting a recipe that has become a family favorite.

This is our new favorite potato soup. DH thinks it's more of a chowder since it's so thick. It doesn't matter what you call it. Definetely worth the effort to make it!!! I can see this soup in our future for a long, long time!! Made for PARTY Tag

This is certainly different from my usual potato soup. This made for a much more savory soup. I used 1 cup of 1% milk and 1 cup of heavy cream. Great soup for those cold winter evenings. Made for Dec 2010 Let's P-A-R-T-Y.

Fantastic! DD requested potato soup for dinner tonight, and boy are we glad she did. This recipe is now "THE" recipe we will use to make potato soup. Very tasty! We will be making this soup again and again. Thanks for posting!

Excellent! Followed recipe to a tee with the exception of sauteing fresh garlic with the onion in place of the garlic powder. The red pepper sauce adds a fabulous little kick! DH always turns his nose up when we have potato soup, but gave this 5 stars! Simple recipe with basic ingredients. We will definately enjoy this often through the winter. Thanks!

Really good soup. I found that there was not enough bacon grease for the flour(lean bacon?)to blend so I added about 3 T. of flour for the roux. Also made as the recipes states and it was really good but found the heavy cream was overkill. Will use 2% milk next time and save the calories. It is just a taste preference. If you like the cream flavor- go for it.
