    This was delicious. We had it for dinner and several lunches. I used russett potatoes and didn't bother with the bacon and green onions. A definite repeat.

    This is a great hearty soup recipe. I made some subsititutions, I left out the bacon and added in blue cheese which was great. I also added in some reduced fat sour cream. really tasty and low fat.

    This recipe is super easy and quick. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal and I will be using this recipe again. I made a few changes to the recipe; I added a half a shallot and I used my immersion blender to break down the potatoes, onions and broccoli. Finally, based on the other reviewers advice, I added salt and pepper to taste.

    This was my first time making a thicker type soup and it was excellent! I did add garlic, and cauliflower which kicked up the flavor nicely. Then, instead of green onions, I used some fresh onion chive. It was great. My boyfriend said it was perfect once salt and pepper were added, but I'm not a fan of those flavors, so it's nice to just season once it's already served. Great dish, I will definitely be making this again!

    Yummo! I improvised a little. Added some chopped carrots for taste and aesthetics. Blended it with a whisk towards the end to make it a little creamier, and used skim milk. Left out the bacon and chopped green onion because I didn't have it, and tasted just fine without it. Was able to make this out of stuff I had in the cabinets! Such a great meal in a pinch!

    This was pretty simple to make and very tasty! My husband and I both enjoyed it. I didn't use any bacon or chives and I pureed it at the end. It turned out very rich & creamy. I also added in some red pepper flakes for a little kick. I can't wait to make this again as it gets colder!

    I made this soup and loved it made a few changes. I browned the bacon and cooked the onions in the bacon fat also add cayenne pepper just a pinch and used 2cups of milk because I like my soup a little thinner .

    I used one cup non fat milk and about 2-3 T of full fat sour cream... made it creamy and delicious! Also used red potatoes and turkey bacon... definitely a keeper!
