I made this last night. I must say I have had better. Like other reviewers who said the soup was bland I have to agree. I would add more salt and pepper to taste rather than sticking with the described amounts. Also, I have made a better potato soup on my stove top in a lot less time and with a lot more flavor than this recipe. Probably won't make this again.
This classic soup gets a double hit of cheese--stirred into the soup and sprinkled over the top.
