My husband loved this chowder! I used the southern style hashbrowns with onions and peppers included in the package. I also had about a cup of heavy cream to use up, then used the other cup as half-and-half. I did feel that the soup needed to be thickened up just a bit, so was glad that the instructions stated to thicken with flour water. It turned out perfect. Before serving, I added about 1 cup of cheddar cheese to the chowder and stirred it until it was just melted. (We love cheese!) Then, I added a sprinkle of cheese on top for garnish. Thanks, Trisha W for a tasty meal!
This has got to be the easiest potato soup I've ever made and the taste is fantastic. I couldn't find southern style hash browns so just used Ore Ida Hash Browns, worked out fine. I would probably get some shredded cheddar and some bacon bits to top the soup with next time. Another great recipe by Trisha that I will use over and over!!
