No where close to Outbacks, the cheese really thru off this recipe. I will stick to my own next time which is a lot closer and more of a potato soup less of a cheese soup. This just looked simpler to make with less ingredients.

I also followed some of the suggestions, I used 3/4lb cheese, but also included cooked bacon. Also I put half in the blender and it made it so creamy, and yummy!! Its a fabulous soup that my Huband loves, and he is very 'picky' over what he eats. Will be using this recipe a lot more in the future.

Great easy potato soup, but it's not close to Outback's.
