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 =)
Love it but we make it without the veggies and ham, still fantastic!!!
super fast, easy, and so good! I didn't add ham since I'm not a big fann of it, but it still had a great flavor. put it all in the crock-pot on low for about 7 hrs than partially mashed it with a potato masher. first potato soup recipe i've made that turned out good! thsnks!
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.
This soup was excellent! Even better then next day.
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.
