WOW!!! With a little doctoring this soup is out of this world. By far the best soup I've ever eaten. I added 1 Tbsp of extra finely chopped garlic an extra cup of potato doubled the onion and pepper and added 1/4 cup thinly sliced carrot. It was delicious!!!
I would suggest making this a day ahead of time. It tastes better after all the flavors have set in. I added dill and skipped the cheese. When I serve it, I sprinkle cheese and some bacon bits on top. Great recipe that can be made many different ways!!!
What a terrific recipe! I was searching for one that did not use potato flakes or cream soups to thicken and this one was just right. I made very minor variations like adding a little parsley and extra salt for flavor and adding some grated carrots. I also used Yukon Gold instead of red potatoes and skipped the cheese since I made it to accompany a main course. Yum...even the children enjoyed it!
GOOD SOUP!!!!! SOUPERB! I followed the directions with some minor changes: I used turkey broth instead of chicken broth. When the potatoes were tender I used a potato masher and slighty mashed some of the potatoes the make the soup thicken and omitted the cornstarch. I added leftover turkey pieces and various herbs and spices like paprika basil garlic salt and pepper. I don't like cheese in my soup and I thought 2 cups of cheese was a little much anyways so instead I just sprinkled some cheese on the top when I dished the soup up in individual bowls. It was a great change from my usual "leftover turkey from thanksgiving soup" and a delicious way to use up leftover potatoes and turkey! Thanks for the recipe it's a keeper!
This is my daughter's favorite meal of all time. My only modifications are to use colby-jack cheese instead of cheddar because that's what we usually have on hand and to add about three tbsp of crumbled bacon when I add the potatoes so the flavor cooks in. I do use Kitchen Basics gluten-free broth since we are gluten-intolerant and this way I can be sure it's safe. But this is hands-down the best recipe I have found for potato soup.
I am rating this recipe based solely on the content--I made it exactly as written. It is an excellent base recipe but a little bland without some additions. I did garnish with real bacon bits before serving. Next time I will add some more seasoning components: bacon in the soup green onion and maybe some garlic. A really good start to what could be a 5 star knockout recipe!
