I didn't mind this, neither did my husband, but its probably not something I would make again or add to our regular rotation. The main reason being the kids weren't fans. As I always say, it was worth a try!
AWESOME! I made as directed except I added 1 t. garlic powder & 1-2 t. of dill weed. I used an immersion blender to make it creamy & smooth. Thanks for posting...it is a keeper!
I've had this soup before and it is delicious - but try this: pour this potato soup over fresh spinach and added small pieces of broiled sausage on top of it with a few onion straws. This makes for a wonderful meal by itself. That's the German way to make potato soup. They served hot butter rolls with pickled watermelon as a side.
WOW! Our teenage son made this easy recipe (doubled it) on "his" night to make dinner. It was AMAZING! DEFINITELY a keeper! (Could be simplified/even quicker by buying frozen cubed potatoes if needed.) This is a weeknight "keeper!" Thanks for sharing!
I don't like soup but tried this recipe and have been hooked ever since...family favorite kids are always asking me to make it
I love this soup and have passed it on to friends. They also love it. Of course when they ask me for the recipe, I have to send them the original since I don't follow the amounts given since I make so much more! The ways to make this are endless! I've added cooper cheese, a steakhouse onion cheese and now I'm going to try a horseradish cheese. I've also added broccoli and cauliflower to it. Instead of yellow onions, I use leeks which to me give it a great taste. I just love trying to improve the taste of it. I use my stick blender to blend the potatoes and it turns out great. This is one of my go to soups.
There is a bit of additions I made, red pepper flakes, lots more cheese, its nicer and creamier that way, but overall this is a keeper for certain.
Simple & delicious!!!! Will surely make again. This recipe had excellent flavor and texture. If you are worried about the cream cheese looking curdled when it is first added, don't worry it is just not 100% melted. after melting on low heat for 10-15 minutes cheese will nicely smooth into the soup. Also when it said smash a few potatoes to release the flavor I smashed a little less than 1/2 of the potatoes which worked great. We also left out the ground red pepper due to picky kids in our family, this also had no negative effect on the flavor. :) ENJOY!
