    Very delicious but the recipe is missing some information. It doesn't say what to do with the milk. So I added the milk just before I added the butter/flour mixture and it came out just fine.  -  10 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I think this recipe is amazing!!! I make enough to freeze about once a month. I've had my mom over for lunch and she loved it as well. People ask for the recipe all the time! The only real change I made was to use chicken broth instead of water. As well, I always add extra veg and I leave the skins on my potatos.  -  16 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This potato soup is great and very easy to make. The first time I made it I followed the recipe as stated and the second time the only change I made was that I used Yukon gold potatoes and a little chopped onion and they both turned out great. The only other suggestion I have is to top with chopped green onion and crispy pre-cooked bacon before serving. Great recipe.  -  21 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
