"Great potato soup with a wonderful taste for anytime of the year. Don't forget to add the bacon bits to garnish for an added zip! Just double the recipe to fill your crock pot."
Serving Size: 1 (275 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"This was great soup! I did make some alterations. I added about 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I do that with just about everything) and 2 cups of cubed ham. Then when I added the milk and flour I also added 1 1/2 cups velveeta. I made it in the crockpot. I put everything but the flour, milk, and cheese in, then about an hour before the potatoes were done, I added them. It took about 7-8 hours on low with the potatoes in one inch dices. Oh, and I used chicken stock in place of the water and boullion. Thanks!"
"This soup is outstanding! It tastes great and is very easy to make. I did not add the flour, instead I put half of the mixture in the blender and pureed the potatoes - used them as the thickening agent. I also added a bit of grated cheese to the top of each bowl - really tasty! Thank-you for posting this!"
"Easy to prepare and delicious. I did leave out the dill as I had none. I also slightly mashed the potatoes and carrots in the pot before adding the flour. I added a very tiny amount of Sherry to the soup and I made medium sized dumplings right in the soup and placed one in the middle of each serving just because I love dumplings and they did go great and made a good presentation. Everyone loved the soup, even my DD who doesn't care for soup. Your recipe is a keeper in my house. "
"Too much dill for our family, next time I will use only about 1/2 tbsp dried dill. Very good soup - like a chowder without the clams."
"We love this soup! The first time I made it, my hubby texted me later & told me he overheard our kids talking about how awesome it was! :) I love that almost every ingredient is a staple item, and if you cut the potatoes into a small dice, it only takes 20-30 min to cook! Because of our preferences, I usually add corn and about an ounce of cheese, and some garlic salt. We also added Italian sausage instead of bacon once. And, in a pinch, you can decrease the amount of milk some and increase the broth. Fantastic as written, but extremely versatile! Thanks!! This has become a regular favorite!"
"Easy to make! I followed the recipe but - didn't have dill weed, added a little thyme, threw in a handful of frozen broccoli I had, a handful of cheddar in the soup, and used chives rather than regular onion. I didn't think it was going to come together but I added just a tad extra flour&water and the soup came out perfect. 5 stars for working perfectly and tasting fabulous."
"It was easy to make, and really delish! This will be a keeper recipe for me!"
"This was great, even my husband liked this one. He rarely eats my potato soup. I did use 1 tablespoon of dill and that was enough for me."
"This is a nice and easy recipe. I added some chives instead of the dill as I had none. I also shredded cheddar cheese on top when finished. My kids loved it and I will make this often. I also frooze some and it was just as good after reheating."
"This is a keeper. Wonderful soup family just loved it. Didn't change a thing. THANK YOU!!!"
"Delicious! Followed recipe except for substituting dillweed with 1/4 tsp dill seed as didn't have the dillweed on hand. We added a bit of shredded cheddar cheese, instead of bacon bits, as a topping to each bowl. Definitely a repeat recipe!
It would also be a good base for other types of soup like corn chowder or clam. Just add a can of creamed corn or a can of clams."
"I added a couple extra potatoes for a thicker soup and didn't use the celery. I also used cheddar cheese on top instead of bacon, which is a MUST for ever potato soup lover! Cheddar cheese was made for it :) Try putting it in a bread bowl! Carve out the center of a small round loaf, and pour the soup in- YUM! Husband loved it!"
"Very tasty soup. Will make again. Thanks for posting."
"Fantastic. Tastes just like my moms. Didn't have celery, and used only about 1/2 tsp. of dill, added rivels. Yummy! I did have to cook it longer than 20 to get the veggies to the 'tender' point, but I didn't mind waiting! Even my DD's loved it."
"I made this for my family the other night and it hit the spot. I have never added dill weed to my potato soup and it was a nice change of flavor. Its been cold here and this soup took the chill off of us. thank you for sharing with us."
"I only used the onion and potato for veggies but it was still very good! Will make again!"
"This soup is fantastic! My 5 year-old requests it at least once a month. The dill is essential for me, I use fresh when I can get it. We also blend about 1/3 of the soup to thicken it up. One of our favorite comfort foods, especially in the winter in a crisped bread bowl. Thank you for sharing!"
