    Easy recipe but it definitely needs more flavor. I added 1 tsp. Better than bouillon chicken base and a little Lawry's season salt. I think I'll experiment with other recipes that start with a better base.

    So delicious! I did make a couple alterations simply because my household love LOTS of flavor. In the butter/flour mixture I added some onion powder, old bay seasoning, and cayenne pepper. I also added about a 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. Also, I don’t like big chunks in my soup so I mashed the cooked diced potatoes up. The soup was even better the next day! Will definitely make again.

    so bland I'm embarrassed to say I made it. This took a lot of extra ingredients to become edible.

    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.

    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.
