My husband I really enjoyed this recipe. There were a few things we changed that made it even better. We doubled the recipe as well as added extra chopped potatoes. We cooked some chopped garlic with the onions. And added some ramano and parmesan cheese. It was amazing!

This was good... not great... but good. This is the perfect recipe for when you have ingredients to use up or limited ingredients in the house. I like it alot but wasn't blown away.

Yum yum we LOVED it I 'accidentally' added more cheese than stated (about 2 cups) and it was delicious. My boyfriend dipped whole mushrooms in it like fondue. I will definitely make it again but will probably double the recipe as it only ended up being about 2 servings.

I didn't have condensed cream of potato soup but I did have potatoes...and those were peeled and cut into cubes. I added a little extra milk and used chicken broth instead of water. Also salt was necessary and I added an additional 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese to the 1/3 cup of cheddar. Overall solid recipe for a basic soup.

Great way to use up broccoli. Like other readers I also used about twice as much cheese and seasoned it with 1 tsp. chicken bouillon granules. It really only makes about 3 good sized servings for a main dish served with salad & bread. Had to use dried basil of course you use less amount than fresh.

I needed a quick soup for my bridge group that was coming on a very snowy day. I found this the day before made it that night and the group loved it. Even had a request for the recipe. Only thing I would do differently would be to chop the oinions instead of slice. It has a very good taste. Thanks for submitting it. PP

This is a good soup as written but as others said it doesn't make very much. I now steam the broccoli rather than stir frying it including the stalk. I put the cooked stalks with the milk in the blender before adding it to the rest for a bit more flavor.

This soup was wonderful. I would definately suggest doubling as it doesn't make much.

I loved this soup! It took no time at all to whip up and my DH who is soooo picky licked his bowl clean. I did like others and chopped my onions (fine) and added approx. 2 cups of cheese. Wonderful on a cold winter's night.
