My children love this soup. It's the only one they will eat. Made with potatoes, bacon, and cheese - it is a meal in itself!

I made some changes I also added a clove of garlic chopped celery and helped the flavor along with chicken b. cubes. added a bay leaf and chopped parsley. Excellent. I served it with grated Guyrere cheese and chopped green onion... Definitely excellent. I omitted the potato flakes.

I had a perfect potato soup until I added the potato flakes. Yes they thickened the soup but the resulting texture was horrible.

We are real "soup people" and this recipe will definately grace the table again! I added some silced button mushrooms instead of the corn and also about 1/2 cup of grated parmesan to give it a little extra zing. The whole family really enjoyed it. Thank You!

This has got to be the best potato soup I've ever had. Even my granddaughter liked it and she hates everything. Thick and full flavored it won't let you down.

I have never liked potato soup but I must say this variety is wonderful. My husband and I like to add a few different things to it sometimes but it's great even if you leave it alone although a little worcestershire sauce is good in it. We love to fix the Portuguese Fried Bread recipe that we found on this site. Nothing is better on a cold winter day.

My husband LOVED this soup. I served it with grilled cheese sandwiches. Even my kids liked it! I did add just a dash of garlic for flavor. It is a very hearty and fullfilling meal!

I felt it tasted like runny mashed potatoes

This just wasn't good at all. I think it would be better if you used real potatoes.

My husband oldest daughter and I all enjoy this recipe. We do not add the corn but the rest of the recipe is perfect for our taste. This is the only potato soup I will make from now on.
