    Super yummy! I ended up adding about 1C of chicken broth because it was pretty thick!

    Added some chicken stock to thin it out. Crowd pleaser!

    Absolutely fabulous-a snowy day with yummy potato soup and football is a perfect day! I did dice up half a sweet onion and put it in with the flour/butter roux and I went a little heavier on the cheese. Served it with homemade bagel chips ( mostly because I had stale bagels that needed using).

    Very good and pretty easy overall! I saw a comment on the original blog suggesting to add some chicken broth to lighten it up a bit so I did and it turned out great (I did 3 cups milk and 3/4 cup chicken broth). Definitely will make this again!

    Very rich and creamy. I prefer this recipe over others that I have tried.

    This ended up really tasty, but the recipe is kind of deceiving in terms of the time it takes to make and how to get the soup to thicken. You need at least 1-1.5 hrs hands on to make it, because it really needs to be boiled for like 30+ minutes for the potatoes to soften, rather than simmer for 15-20. Cube your potatoes very small to speed up the process and reduce chumminess. I would also recommend adding a little extra milk and throwing some minced garlic in with the onions. Overall very yummy once you add all the toppings in, but takes a lot of work.

    First impression, it's a simple and savory soup with lots of potato chuncks. Reheating the leftovers presents a much thicker consistancy and more prominant flavor with a better incorporation of the potatos as far as consistancy goes.

    This soup is super easy to make, and is seriously yummy, hearty and filling! Although, one bowl was more than enough for me LOL. I made a few minor changes. In order to infuse the soup with more flavour I made it in the same pot I cooked the bacon in. That yielded me about 2 tablespoons of yummy bacon oil, so I reduced the butter to 3 tablespoons. And I just mixed all the bacon into the soup once the soup was done, since I'm cooking for one and it wouldn't make sense to have to keep/refrigerate loose bacon bits separately. Also, I happened to have some leftover cream on hand, so I used 1 cup of cream and 2.5 cups of milk...that's probably why my soup turned out so super-thick it was practically a sauce!! I would definitely make this again, it's great comfort food.
