    Best potato soup ever!!! and so easy to make. Made it for St Patricks Day and this will definitely be made more often than once a year. I skipped the bacon and only used Asiago cheese as that is what I had for a topping. Also great for babies- my 9 month old devoured it.

    I made this soup tonight for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow and my Mom's Birthday. It was very easy to make and yummy! I used a hand mixer right in the pot instead of having to mix in batches in a blender. The soup seemed a little too thin, so I baked 2 extra potatoes in the microwave and added them to the mixture at the end. I also did not blend them in so that the soup would have some chunks in it. I also added more pepper. Enjoy!

    My husband said this was the best potato soup he had ever eaten!! That was worthy of the five stars alone. I added smoked paprika and a dash of nutmeg. Also added a couple of roasted bell peppers that I had sitting in the refrig. I found the texture to be what you would expect from potato soup. Outstanding!

    Love, Love, Love this soup recipe! It is so easy and delicious. Use a little more potato to make the soup thicker - and use an immersion hand blender to make this recipe even easier. My friend Kathy makes this frequently for guests; my teenage sons say this is one of their favorite meals of all time!

    I love this soup - much lower fat than the cream based potato soup and it tastes great!

    I love thick and creamy baked potato soups, so I was tempted to use some of the suggestions about adding more potatos. I didn't though and everyone really liked this soup. It was light and delicious. I have onion-phobic family members, and the blending removed the evidence! I used an immersion blender and that was much easier than putting in an actual blender. I will definitely make this one again.

    Nice and light soup. With sodium restricted diets, along with the unsalted butter I used reduced sodium chicken broth. Added some paprika and nutmeg but will have to increase the amount a little next time to add a bit more flavor. This was the first time I made potato soup and was not disappointed. The recipe was simple to do. I too used a hand mixer in the soup pot. It will added to our favorite soup file for sure.
