    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!  -  10 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  03 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  23 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
