This cheesy recipe is great for any type of weather and any type of meal. It is great as a leftover, if there is any left over! Garnish with cheese, bacon, croutons or even add broccoli to the recipe for a different twist.
WOW!!! With a little doctoring this soup is out of this world. By far the best soup I've ever eaten. I added 1 Tbsp of extra finely chopped garlic, an extra cup of potato, doubled the onion and pepper, and added 1/4 cup thinly sliced carrot. It was delicious!!! - 06 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I would suggest making this a day ahead of time. It tastes better after all the flavors have set in. I added dill and skipped the cheese. When I serve it, I sprinkle cheese and some bacon bits on top. Great recipe that can be made many different ways!!! - 20 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What a terrific recipe! I was searching for one that did not use potato flakes or cream soups to thicken, and this one was just right. I made very minor variations, like adding a little parsley and extra salt for flavor, and adding some grated carrots. I also used Yukon Gold instead of red potatoes and skipped the cheese, since I made it to accompany a main course. Yum...even the children enjoyed it! - 08 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
