I followed your recipe but made it lower in calories and carbs by using cauliflower, oh my this is so good - thanks for the idea.

As my first attempt at potato soup, this came out pretty good! Instead of onion, I used two chopped leeks which were much milder in flavor. However, I made the mistake of using red (waxy-type) potatoes instead of white (starchy) potatoes -- the red potatoes held their shape even after 7 hours in the crockpot ... not that big of a deal, since the flavor was still fantastic. I just used my immersion blender to puree it further. Even after that, the soup was still a little thin (b/c of the type of potato I used), so I added a few tablespoons of instant potato flakes & that did the trick! I didn't have any ham on hand, so I added a little hickory salt instead, and some parsley flakes -- delish! Next time I make this I will use the right kind of potato, though! Thanks for posting -M =)

Awesome flavor. I am always looking for low fat recipes and this one is great. I doubled the recipe but only used 8 cups potato and added 4 cups cauliflower. I too added celery and one leek. I used the peppered country gravy. Even though some of my family members are not fond of cauliflower - they ate this soup up and loved it. Will make again and again.

WOW!! That much flavor, ease and low fat to boot. Awesome Chuck! I did saute the onions in a little olive oil and 1/2 cup of chopped turkey bacon in place of the ham. Added a little more chicken broth and only simmered it for 1/2 an hour. Will be making this in the future and sharing this great find with my friends.

This was so simple to make, and very delicious. I used low-sodium chicken broth, to counterbalance the saltiness of the ham. I used a little more broth than the recipe called for, and simmered for only 40 minutes, and it came out just right. Thanks for posting!

As a beginner at cooking this was so easy and it tasted so good. We had it for dinner tonight and loved it. The only thing i would have left out the deli ham it didnt add much taste. #1 on potato soup. This is my new recipe for potato soup. Loved it.

Wow--what an easy, yummy recipe. Tried this the other day, and I followed the directions as stated. However, my soup became quite thick about half-way through, even on very low heat (though we like thick soup). I did find I needed to add a little more chix broth to thin it out--and it still took less than the hour specified, about 40 mins. But we really liked the taste, and I wil be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
