    WOW! I can not say enough about this soup. It is easy, low cost, and is delicious. My kids call it breakfast soup. I used part chicken broth and part water since I had some leftover and a bit of diced ham. However I did make it again following the recipe and it is still amazing. Don't be afraid of the poached eggs. It is well worth it.  -  25 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was a little uncertain about the ingredients at first but the soup turned out very tasty. I did add 2 beef boullion cubes for some additional flavor and also reduced the olive oil to 2 T. Next time, I'd probably only use 1 T and about half the amount of water so there's not quite so much broth.  -  21 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This soup is very good and easy to make! It tasts similar to traditional potato soup, and the poached eggs add a nice touch! When I make this recipe it makes about 3 servings, depending on what size potatos you use.  -  14 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
