I liked this soup. To my mind ANY soup that includes GARLIC in its ingredient list is fine with me. And to my mind its consistency was better than good if you followed the recipe. You didn't like it? Too bland? Then ADD what YOU like (corn carrots peas potatoes beans celery onions etc.; salt pepper (red black white) bay leaf tarragon thyme cumin marjoram sage etc.) I personally liked the effect the NUTMEG had on this recipe. I've been cooking for over 40 years and I LOVE making soups (reduce the liquids and call it "stew"). And one of the things I have learned about cooking (and making soups/stews) is that if you like what you put into it you will like what you get out of it. JMHO. Read More

Needs more potatos but otherwise and easy excellent soup. Try adding shredded cheese and sour cream as a garnish with the bacon. Yummy. Read More

Very good recipe but I like a very thick hardy soup so I added instant mashed potato flakes to it along with margarine. I also added more garlic and some minced dried onions even though I had already used chopped onion. Minced dried onions and garlic go together so well and give depth to many recipes. If it had not been for my additions I would hve rated it a 5. As I fixed it the family loved it. Read More

My family liked this soup but for those of us not experts in quarts pints etc. and obviously not experts in cooking it was a drag to convert (especially when trying to teach children). We added more potatoes and left over Christmas turkey. Also added shredded cheese as suggested...yummy. Read More

This was a decent tasting soup but a bit simple and fairly watery. I used Russet Burbank potatoes which were barely medium-sized so if I made this again I'd use 5 pretty large potatoes to get the proportions more to my liking. I made this exactly as written although I took the suggestion to add bacon and put some Oscar Meyer "Real Bacon Recipe Pieces" in the soup. Also the serving count for me came out to 5 pretty big bowls. Lastly my palate wasn't sensitive enough to detect the garlic and nutmeg so I found such small amounts to be superfluous here (although I relished the chance to use my new "dash" and "pinch" measuring spoons!). Overall this was a decent soup to have on snowy winter days but nothing outstanding in my opinion. Read More

What a nice warm soup on a cold February day. I left out some of the water because it seemed like it was getting too thin but other than that I followed the recipe to a tee and it was a great lunch for us. Read More
