    Used the grease from the bacon, and it was a game changer. So good.

    My family loved it. They felt that I should of had more bacon and not used the Greek yogurt. Stay with the sour cream.

    Super good. Though I unfortunately need to make some non diary modifications in the future. But original is so good it was worth it

    Yum!! I used chicken broth instead of chicken stock (it’s what I had on hand) and it came out very flavorful. Will need to try next time the stock to compare flavors. Otherwise it was a hit with my family!

    A little disappointed overall. Lacked flavor to me. I added a bunch of my own spices/flavors to try to help it out. This is more of a base recipe in my opinion. Of course, it all depends on whether or not you’re used to seasonings/spices in your food. Would make again since the base was good, but definitely with modifications.

    It turned out great. I used two tablespoons of butter and two tablespoons bacon grease.

    It turned out delicious. Couple things though: 1) Prep time didnt take no ten minutes between slicing the onion, the bacon cooking, and the potatoes. Maybe if you had precooked bacon and precut onions, then maybe. 2) I added basil and oregano. Otherwise it was a bit bland as if missing something. Adding those two seasonings was perfect. Otherwise we loved it and may have had plenty for leftovers. :)

    Very yummy! You could modify it but I didn’t and I don’t think I would next time I make it.

    Great. Very thick but easily modifiable. Delicious bacon flavor and easy to pull together.

    This soup is delicious and not too heavy. I added a bit more salt and pepper than the recipe called for to make it a little more flavorful but overall I loved this soup.

    Pretty good. Fam liked it, had seconds. I cut even more fat by using fat-free evaporated milk and turkey bacon. A little bland, used more freshly ground pepper than called for; probably try other spices next time.
