How much does it make? I have a soup cook off and must hand out small samples to allot of people.i usually fill my big oversized crockpot for events like this. Should I triple/quadruple the recipe?
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.
I love this soup - much lower fat than the cream based potato soup and it tastes great!
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!
This soup was great!! The texture is so creamy and smooth. Great cold weather meal.
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!
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.
