    It was so good but you’ll have to add a little more milk and it makes a lot so you’ll have plenty for a week or so

    Soup turned out great. Wasn’t too thick.i added Oregano, parsley, and some chopped onion...and a lot of black pepper, but the consistency was great.

    I split this recipe in half, although I think I got some of the measurements wrong as it seemed to be the normal consistency of soup and I had seen others say it was very thick (I also substituted the flour for a gluten free flour) but it tasted very nice and will definitely try it again.

    Very thick tasted great though

    Very good! I split this recipe in half & we still had some leftover. It is very thick so I ended up thinning it out with about 3/4 a cup of 2% milk!

    I used unsweetened almond milk instead of whole milk, consistency was the same! But if you don’t have your potatoes pre baked or bacon cooked this recipes will take much longer then 35 minutes. It doesn’t say in the recipe till the very very end that she used pre baked/ pre cooked potatoes and bacon. Only con for myself! Other then that simple and easy dinner

    Super rich! Great flavor but I would cut the sour cream, flour and cheese in half next time.

    This is so good! Funny story - my pepper opened up and dumped into the soup - I was able to scoop most of it off the top but there was still way too much left! It was still really good!

    My whole family enjoyed the soup. Very easy to make. It does need extra salt and pepper, but overall it came out great.

    I made it for dinner and it was a little bland so I added more garlic powder, salt, and pepper and it was better.

    Holy moly this was amazing. I fed a hungry horde with this soup and even the leftovers were devoured. It was very fast to make. I cut up and boiled the potatoes rather than baking. I also followed someone else's advice and used onion and garlic in the roux. Will use this recipe all the time!

    This was by far the easiest potato soup I’ve made. It tasted great and there’s plenty for lunch for hubby and I to eat tomorrow. I halved the recipe. The only ingredients I did not add was the garlic and Parmesan cheese.

    So easy and tastes like it took all day to make ! I didn’t bake the potatoes, I boiled them like I would for mashed then added them at the end once everything was melted. It was perfect!
    The soup was great! Lots of flavor and great taste.

    Fam fav!! Delish! However, I did change up the amount of ingredients and ‘eyeballed’ them if you will. This turned out to be the BEST POTATO soup I’ve made! 6 c milk; 1/4 c sour cream; 2 c (shredded) mild cheddar; 1 c butter and 2 tbsp bacon grease; 8 small russet potatoes, 1/4 tbsp of kosher salt. and 4 (maybe) green onion. It was creamy but chunky for just the right balance.

    I make this sooo often! It's my favorite soup! It's even delicious without the bacon when I make it for my vegetarian friends!

    WOW!! This is being added to the rotation - only change I made was half the salt and I added in all options. People are already asking me for the recipe!
