Very easy and quick to make potato soup that won't disappoint! For a thicker broth, add potato flakes. For a more creamy broth, add more butter.

This recipe was ok. I did miss the part about adding potato flakes which I would do if I made it again. The potatoes were really mushy as I think the recipe calls for them to cook too long. We added about 1/2 a packet of country gravy into the soup to try to thicken it a little bit and give it a kick. I would try this recipe again with a few adjustments. Thanks! Read More

Very tasty and easy! I have a few picky eaters so I made a couple changes. I doubled it left out the onion and bacon and added chicken bouillon granules to the water for extra flavor. I also threw in some shredded cheddar I had on hand. Then it still wasn't thick enough for me so I sprinkled in some mashed potato flakes to thicken it up. It turned out amazing! My husband raved about it. Definitely on my regular recipe rotation! Read More

My husband and I were craving potato bacon soup so I thought I'd try this one as I had the ingredients on hand. I substituted chopped fried turkey bacon for the bacon bits which was delicious. I also kept the peel on the nugget potatoes which added heartiness. I looked in my cupboard and spotted liquid smoke so added a few dashes (1-2 T.) and a few pinches of chill powder at the end- DELISH! Definitely making this recipe again. The liquid smoke made the soup VERY satisfying. Read More
