If you make this recipe as stated it's way too salty (as I had feared with all of the boullion cubes and salt) and it doesn't have enough potatoes for me. I would suggest reducing the salt you add or omitting it altogether as the cubes have enough themselves. Also I used 3 cups of potatoes which still wasn't quite enough so I'd recommend 4 cups. This recipe has potential but just needs a little tweaking. Read More

Super delish!!! Like other reviewers I added more potatoes. I used almost 4 cups. This was really quick and didn't call for lots of ingredients. It has a wonderful taste...two of my children (6 yr old and 3 yr old) insisted on having a serving right away! I can't wait for hubby to come home for dinner! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Very yummy soup and with surprising results - my two young children LOVED it! I suggest adding twice the amount of potatoes...but other than that this will be a recipe we will make again and again! Read More

Very very good flavor in this soup. I added 3 cups of potatoes but sure wished I'd used another 2. I only added about 1/8 tsp black pepper to the soup before I served it. I'd give this 5 stars if I didn't think it needed double the potatoes called for. As it is though it wouldn't feed 4 people as it only fed 2 here. My son had seconds (he's a growing teen). Definitely a keeper. Thanks Sue! Read More

Two cups of potatoes are not enough.. I ended up using three medium size potatoes. I didn't think the soup was thick enough so next time I'll use a little more flour. As for taste... This is a five star soup. I ate three bowls of soup and skipped the rest of my lunch! Read More
