Outstanding!!! I didn't have heavy cream and used half and half and just loved it. Will definitely do this again. (this time with heavy cream) :) Really appreciate your sharing this recipe. Thank you.

This soup is absolutely wonderful! I am SO glad I tried it over 2 years ago. Since then we have made it countless times. My grandmother (who had her own potato soup recipe that she used for 40 some years) asked me for the recipe the first time she tried it and now she makes it more than I do! The only thing we do differently is add egg noodles and most of the time we use canned potatoes because it's quicker and still tastes wonderful. I have tried it before leaving out the butter and flour and it is not nearly as good. This has become a Christmas Eve staple because the whole extended family loves it. I always get the potato soup at restaurants and none compare to this.

Chose this recipe for PAC Fall '06. I'm happy I did, as this was very comforting on a chilly night. Delicious! :)

This soup was absolutely delicious. But not as thick as we like it. I doubled the flour and butter and added 2 more large potatoes. I didn't add the milk as it would have made it to thin and i pulverized a few of the potatoes to make it thicker..... Bacon crumbled on top

My family loved this soup! It was cold and snowy outside and it just hit the spot! My family does like potato soup a little thicker so next time I will do step five. I will definatly use this recipe again! THANK YOU!
