This is the best potato soup ever. I did have to cut back on the flour and butter for the thickener . Half of the called amounts was perfect.

my boyfriend and I go to outback often and he always orders the potato soup. So I made a bet with him that I could make the soup. I did today, it tasted great I won the bet. I will surely be making this soup again

Awesome potato soup!!! Loved this. I wasn't sure about the measurement for cans of broth since I make my own so I did 6 cups, added a couple slices of cooked bacon to the soup (as well as used more for garnish) and otherwise kept everything the same. Makes a lot, but was so good as left overs none went to waste. By the way, even the kids loved this soup. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Great Soup! Made as written and also added about a cup of shredded cheddar in the soup as well as the cheese on top. Made for Lets P-A-R-T-Y 2011.

Loved this soup but thought it had way too much butter in it. I think you could use 1/2 to 1/4 of the butter and it would still be a great potato soup. I added my cooked bacon right into the soup and also added a hand-full of cheddar cheese which was all I had. I used half & half for the heavy cream and that worked very well. I also microwaved my potatoes with skins on rubbed with a little EVOO, let them cool and peeled and chopped. I'll be making this one again. Thanks for sharing. Made for "Let's Party 2011"

This is the closest you will get to Outback without having to leave your home! I didn't change a thing and it turned out beautifully.

I can't eat potato soup at Outback because it contains wheat flour (like 99.9% of other restaurants). Subbed 6 Tbs. cornstarch for the flour in this recipe; it's easy, hearty, inexpensive - a family favorite. Thanks for sharing!

Sorry forgot to rate it... Our son used to be the kitchen manager at the local Outback. I ran this by him and he said this looked a lot like the original (been a while since he worked there). I have made it a few times and although I have not done a side by side test this tastes just like Outback's IMO. I brought a crock pot full to a Super Bowl party and it was a hit. Many people coming back for seconds and asking for the recipe! Thanks Jazell. I would like to point out to the newer cooks that the 8 qts of water is for boiling the potatoes.
