    Used different ingredients. Yummy way to use up mash. I added sour cream, chives and cheddar cheese on top. Mmmm- comfort food. - 29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Very easy and very tasty! Perfect comfort food. I added a bit more milk and let it simmer a while to really let the flavours blend. - 29 Sep 2008


    I made the soup as is, except I did add some baked potato cubes as well. This is a good basic potato soup recipe. Nothing super spectacular - but, not unpleasant either. I would make it again, because it is tasty and very easy to make. - 29 Sep 2008
