This is a simple basic potato soup recipe but it is so good and just the way I want potato soup to be. Will be making it often. Made exactly as recipe said and wouldn't change a thing.

This is an AWESOME soup, very easy and tasty!! I have never made any potato soup without using the potato water so.....only change made was, 3 cups potato water and 3 cups milk, and sauteed some onions with the butter! Everyone loved it and said this is a keeper.

I love this recipe! The only thing that I do differently is to add lots of sauteed onion. Very Yummy!

This is a simple, delicious recipe. I had never made potato soup before, but I found, with this recipe, that it wasn't hard at all. My family loves it. I used some celerey salt in mine, and that was a hit.

This soup was fantastic! I have a suggestion for those who had trouble getting the lumps out of the flour mixture..i used a hand blender on the soup after adding the first half of milk and then after the 2nd half....i also doubled the salt and added 1/2 tspn of garlic powder and 1/2 tspn of onion powder....i used whole wheat flour, nonfat milk and half the amount of cheese to make it a bit healthier...also after boiling the potatoes i used a hand blender on them too to give them a creamy texture. when i blended them in to the soup the result was a hearty, creamy potato soup with no lumps- i served it with a loaf of warm homemade bread...it was delicious on a cool, overcast night- thank you for posting!

This soup taste wonderful! I made if for my family and they absolutely loved it. I made a few changes. I didn't have any chicken bouillons so I used a can of chicken stock and added it to my flour and butter mixture (also added 1/2 onion). It was very easy and was mmmmm, mmmmm good!

This is a favorite of mine. Not only creamy and delicious but also hearty. I do like to add some cooked carrots, celery, and onion to it. It's also great with broccoli in it.

"I was skeptical but gave it a try. It turned out wonderful. I added some chopped kale and mild sausage. This will be added to my favorites."

If you're new to making your own soup, allow about an hour to an hour and a half to make this. It's a much heartier soup than I had first imagined or am used to for Potato Soup, which makes it even more amazing! I made it without any modifications minus adding some parsley for garnish on the top. I found (like most people) that adding something like bacon bits, a little extra cheese on top, or something else would help make it that much better! I would also suggest potentially adding some of the milk in before you mix in the flour with the butter. I had difficulty fully un-clumpifying the flour and butter mixture. Overall, a delicious soup that will be even better after I get some bacon bits!
