    Very rich and very thick! Delicious! You could almost put it in a casserole dish and serve it as a potato side! LOL! We enjoyed this last night while we watched Thursday night football. Thanks for sharing another delicious recipe!

    Yum. Love baked potato soup! I halved the recipe and this came out very well. We loved the taste and ease of this recipe. I used a Mexican cheese blend and green onions as the garnish. Thanks Nancy for a nice warm keeper on a cold winter day. Made for PRMR Tag.

    This was rich but very tasty! I used veggie bacon and soy milk. Thanks!

    This was really a great soup! Baking the potatoes made a big difference in the flavour, much deeper. Very simple to put together, we had this for a very filling meal along with some crusty bread. Thanks for posting :) Made for Aussie Reunion Tag!
