    Nice and creamy! I followed the recommendation to add cajun seasoning and I added WAY too much (1tbsp is recommended). If you want something spicy I would only add a half tablespoon or less. I also added corn for extra texture. Very good!

    Very good! My husband had been craving potato soup, and now he is in the recliner in a carb induced coma. 😂 After reading the reviews, I questioned including the garlic. My husband said yes, so I did. It was delicious and he loved it, but I think I would have preferred it without. Either way, it was a winner for the first cooler, cloudy day of the season

    This came out excellent. I threw in 1/2 cup of cream because I had to use it up, and increased the chicken stock a bit because mine thickened up too much. (Probably due to the cream!) Pretty versatile base to add things you like, but terrific just the way it is.

    I am an avid potato soup junkie. This beats every recipe I’ve tried by far
    So creamy! And great flavor

    This soup is perfect! I am a fan of Yukon Gold potatoes but this recipe is so Rich and creamy that I have found russets with their earthy flavor and light texture are the perfect match!

    It turned out well. The only thing I would change is for the time it takes. It takes a lot longer then 35 mins. I also added homemade guacamole to my bowl and it was delicious.
    I cut the flour in half as well as omitted the cheese. It’s so delicious!!!

    Easy and delicious, especially since I had all the ingredients on hand. I made it exactly as the recipe called for, and my husband and I both thought it was yummy! Will definitely make it again.

    Easy and delicious. Cook the potatoes a little longer than you think you need to so they are all tender. I skipped the bacon, but I did use a tablespoon of bacon grease with butter because I had some in the refrigerator. (I recently moved south, so it has become a staple.) I also skipped the sour cream added at the end, but set it out as a stir in option. We will definitely enjoy this one again! Saved it,

    Good!! Liked by my 5 year old and very picky 9 year old! I followed the recipe exactly but used just a little bacon grease with 1 tbsp of butter. At the end, I mashed some of the potatoes with my potato masher.

    Easy to make and quite delicious. It pleased every palate in the family. I substituted the bacon with sausage links to get more of a meaty bite.
