Questions & Replies

  1. Do you drain the chicken broth


  1. Yummy! We really enjoyed this soup. I had ham broth I saved from a baked ham I made so I used that instead of the chicken broth. It turned out great! I wish I had made a double batch, it's so good. Thanks, GailAnn!
  2. Amazing potato soup !!! It's super easy to make and has great flavor I have made it several times and I think I finally have it perfected I didn't add the mushrooms because we don't really care for them I added a ladle of my chicken broth and potato mixture and put it in my blender with the cream cheese and puréed it so it was nice and smooth and then added it back to the potato/ broth mixture and stired it in it made the soup a lot creamier and you didn't have those little chunks of cream cheese that didn't get completely blended in
  3. Very Good!!!!! Was easy to make and very hearty. There wasn`t any leftovers on this one. My family is not real big into soups. They said this one was a keeper.
  4. Very good, very thick soup! I think celery would have been a great addition to this soup. I liked it even better the next day when I added some water and topped it with nonfat sour cream and more bacon bits. I agree with the original portion sizes you had on the recipe (serves 4-6). Thank you!
  5. Delicious! I did not have any mushrooms but it was wonderful even without them!
