Have made this several times, and is one of our favorites. Have received many compliments from it. Also love that it's lower in fat than many other potato soup recipes.

This was delicious! I did use chicken broth in place of the water though, but still added 1 bouillon cube. I increased the onion to 1 cup (personal preference) and added about 1 tsp. of thyme. Also, instead of thickening with flour, I used about 4-5 T. of instant mashed potatoes.

Super yum!!! Was a little thin for me with just 4 cups of potatoes, so I added another cup or so. Perfect! I added about a cup of chopped broccoli too. Gotta get in those veggies! Used FF evaporated milk. Makes it so creamy. Will definitely make again!

I've made this soup twice now. I like it better with 6 cups of potatoes and the rest of the veggies doubled. Because of these additions, I added a little extra chicken broth. I used 3 1/2 c of fat free half n half and 1/2 c of light cream instead of regular milk. I also increased the seasonings to taste. Very good, we ate every bite!

Made as directed except used chicken base instead of chicken bouillon, left out the dill; subbed 2 tall cans evap milk for the milk and added about 1 tbsp bacon grease to the soup. Also put the vegs in a blender after cooking so it would be a smooth, creamy soup and added 4 oz cream cheese & cooked til melted & combined. Very rich and very tasty! A keeper! Note: did not do the flour/milk step. Also added about an additional 3/4 cup water while vegs were doing the initial cooking. Rich enough w/out topping with any cheese...just topped with bacon. This will go in my regular rotation!!! LOVED IT!

This soup was pretty good. It was a little bland but overall this is a good recipe. Adding garlic powder did the trick for us. We will add fresh garlic next time. We also used vegetarian chicken stock and morningstar farms bacon. Thanks!

We really love this recipe. The first time I made it just like the recipe says. The next time I didn't have any chicken boullion, so I put in a can of chicken broth. It still turned out great. I also added some cayenne pepper to give it just a bite.

I fixed this for lunch today while we watched election news. I didn't know how the dill weed would work out, but it really added a terrific taste. Then I remembered that some potato salad has dill in it too. Anyway, it was a very tasty soup, and very easy to make. Thanks Shannonmc!

Made this for a soup cook-off at work! It was very good and quick and easy to make. The potatoes stayed firm and did not get mushy even after reheating! I put the bacon right in the soup instead of on top. It was a nice touch!
