It tasted good but took WAAAYY longer than the suggested time. It would be easier to cook your potatoes first before you add them to anything

Excellent I like it a bit creamy and I made enough for 20 people, so I added 4 cups 35 % cream 4 cups half and half with 8 cups of 2 % milk and used extra old Cracker Barrel

This soup is super good. I made it a day ahead though, well because soup is always better the day after.

My first attempt at potato soup, and it went really well! The directions were clear and easy for me to follow as a beginner. If you would like the soup to be thicker, add in milk very slowly while whisking slowly for longer than you feel may be necessary. It will eventually thicken, and/or just add extra potatoes.

I have made this 3 or 4 times now and it's so good. It can be fairly time consuming to bake the potatoes but worth it in the end. This is a very creamy soup pefect for fall.

It's a nice recipe that gives you what you need, but it does have a few flaws. Besides the nutritional outrage that comes of the calories and fat content, even with low fat substitutions, it isn't as thick as one would expect from a potato soup. Adding flour didn't change much, likely because of just how much milk is needed. I myself used half whole milk, half 2%, so it might be a slight difference compared to using all whole milk, but I doubt it would be a huge change. All in all the recipe needs a few adjustments, but everyone still enjoyed it and I wouldn't recommend against it.

It was ok. Nothing impressive. I will try a different recipe next time. This recipe has too much butter and sour cream to my taste.

My husband hates soup, but between 3 people (mostly him) it was gone in no time! Will double next time for leftovers!
