New England Potato Soup

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Thanks to Priscilla's New England Potato Soup for the starter recipe that I tweaked. Use your imagination! Throw in what you have available! Not sure about spices, read the label on the container. If it's for soup, try it! You can easily make this vegetarian by leaving out animal-based stock and the ham. Enjoy - very delicious!"

Very nice. Easy to make. I made it using an old ham bone as the stock starter, and then followed the recipe. Nice flavors.

We really liked this recipe and I made it as listed, however I had only had fat free milk on hand. I added 8 oz of velveeta cheese giving it a richness it was missing. I didn't peel the potatoes...

Easy recipe to put together and delicious to boot. I made this as written in the morning, cooled it and reheated it for dinner. The ham and peas were a nice addition to potato soup. My family...

I didn't put in the peas (used yellow potatoes instead of red just because I had them on hand) otherwise followed the recipe and it was wonderful! This recipe is also a terrific "base" for a sta...

Thumbs up all around the table, including my two year old grandson.

This a very good soup. Made it just as it said and the whole family loved it!
