very bland - let's try to review the recipe as written, not the recipe as you modified it. Adding celery, carrot, scallions, chives, and/or sharp ceddar would certainly help this recipe. But I am not writing a review about something other than the recipe as written. It needs work as it is woefully under-seasoned.
My husband brought this recipe home last night and made it for me, very easy! I would add green onions and cheese for toppings, but they are not needed!
Good stuff. Made a triple batch to use up red potatoes from the farmers' market. Added celery (with the onions) and carrots (with the potatoes) as well. Also used real bacon. Made it last night, so I'm betting it'll be even better today!
Solid recipe, I used an 8 quart pot so I had to double the chicken stock in order to cover the amount of potatoes I used. I also added celery and carrot pieces. I would make this again, it's great for someone on a budget!
