Sauted a half an onion and a ton of garlic in the butter with a little olive oil to boot. I also used ww pastry flour (all I had) and added 1/2 lb of bacon that I fried up while everything else was cooking. I used the new knorr chicken stock concentrate (2 of them) and then 1/2 water 1/2 heavy whipping cream. I also added probably about 3 cups of cheese. It was AH-MAZING. Thank you for an excellent base recipe that helped me bring this together!
We loved this recipe. It was so easy to make. I used skim milk. I also added 1/4 cup chopped onion to the butter as it was melting. We added the cheese as a topping and also bacon crumbles. Delicious!!
YUM! I prefer potato soups with cream cheese, but didn't have any on hand, so I thought I'd try something new. I added diced chicken, onions, peas and carrots, and a dash of steak seasoning for added flavor. I topped with more shredded cheese and bacon crumbles. I served it with dinner rolls and it made a wonderful "comfort food" dinner for the new fall weather.<br/>**TIP** for those with lump problems - make the rue first by melting butter an stirring in the flour, it will be lumpy. Slowly add in milk, 2 cups at a time, stirring constantly. Don't add your next two cups of milk until it is hot, and on the verge of boiling. Then add the next two cups and repeat the process.
Loved it! :)
I felt like there wasn't enough flavor to this recipe despite the fact that I boiled a garlic clove with my potatoes then added 2 pressed garlic cloves into the broth; sauteed a minced onion, shredded carrot, and 2 minced stalks of celery in a tbsp of margarine that I added to the potatoes once finished; threw in a parmesean cheese rind in the milk when bringing the milk to a boil; added a little extra pepper & 1/4 tsp paprika; and then threw in 1 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley just before serving. It's a good starter recipe but definitely needs lots of modifications if you want good flavor.
This was awesome. Kids loved it, definitely adding this recipe to our regular menu. Thanks for sharing!
Really good base recipe. I sauteed onions & garlic in it. I doubled the chicken bouillon instead of adding extra salt. After a lot of reviews talking about the flour clumping I added half a cup of milk to the butter before adding the flour. It made no taste difference & it was easier. I used the cheese as a topping instead of mixing it in like a lot of others. This is the perfect recipe for making half. Thank you.
We followed the recipe, but made a few variations (probably making it similiar to the baked potato soup). I sauteed onions prior and added those at the end. Added some chopped garlic. We used skim milk. We also added a good amount of sour cream at the end (probably between .25-.5 cup). Put bacon on top and enjoyed!
Loved it! I used (defrosted) frozen hash brown potatoes to cut down on prep work. I used half the cheese in the soup and half as garnish. I also added bacon crumbles.
