Excellent soup for cold nights;goes very well with cornbread.
Very good basic recipe-have to add spices accding to your tastes..2nd time making recipe, I added a can of Cream of Chicken soup at the beginning, and also diced onions. Spices used: Old Bay, Garlic salt, reg. salt, garlic powder, white pepper, dill weed, 2 bay leaves, Cavender's seasoning. Very very good with 'real' bacon bits & shredded cheddar added too. Top w/sour cream & more cheese if you want! - 01 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I like potato soup but I really didn't care for this one. It was easy to prepare, thinkened up real nice but it just didn't have any flavor. Salt and pepper helped a bit, but it needs something more in my opinion. If you like plain tasting soup this will work for you if you don't keep looking. - 25 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This soup was good. When I printed the recipe it called for eight pounds of potatoes so I made much more than called for. I think it should have read eight cups? - 28 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
