  • My family really enjoyed this soup…Easy to make.We left out the bacon..No chopping just throw it all in..you can add whatever you want to it..But if you just want a good cheesy potatoe soup this is it.

  • I made this soup for my boyfriend and I last week. I didn’t change a thing, and it turned out perfectly! It was very cheesy and bacon-y. A very thick soup as well. I will definitely be making this again, but possibly in a smaller amount next time, as it was way too much for only 2 of us to eat.

  • Fantastic soup. Made it 2 days ago and everyone loved it. I really think it was even better the 2nd day. BTW, I crumbled real bacon and also added bulk sausage to recipe for husband who loves meat. Will be making it Christmas Eve

  • I made this and it was glorious! I used real bacon, however!

  • Made this a few days ago added cream of potato to the soup also used fresh potatoes instead of frozen and real bacon in the soup and on top so good !!

  • So glad you enjoyed it, thanks for sharing feedback.

  • Glad you enjoyed it. It is a big pot for the two of us too, but the left overs are as good if not better. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  • So glad you enjoyed it. I think the left overs are just as good myself if not better. Thanks for sharing your input!

  • So glad you enjoyed it. The Bacon bits are made from real bacon as well. Just helps speed up the process. Thanks for sharing.

  • So glad you enjoyed it. The potatos we used are made from real potatoes and the bacon bits from real bacon. This just helps speed up the process for those with limited time. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • I have tried several different recipes, and this is by far the easiest and the best!!!! I did add onions to the recipe. Made once for my husband and our friends, then for my aunt, uncle and cousin and they love it! Cant wait for the rest of the family to try it on Christmas! My husband keeps asking me when I'm making it for him again lol!

  • My wife loved this recipe so much it has become a go to recipe!

  • Can this be frozen?

  • How many servings do you think? I want to make it next week for about 7 people, do you think this will be enough or can I double it?

  • Thanks so much for the feedback. So glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

  • That's awesome, thanks so much for the feedback. Please share with friends and family.

  • Sure it can, just put it in a freezer container or freezer zip lock. 🙂

  • There are many ways to make this with various ingredients… It started out years ago using hotdogs for the meat well over 30 years ago Ham works great Adding Cream of Mushroom soup Sliced Mushrooms…. Many ways to make a good thick rich Soup…

  • Also this can be made on a Stove in a Good sized Pot….

  • I made this two weeks ago and have another batch of it going for dinner tonight. It's a super easy recipe and it is very, very good!

  • So glad you enjoyed the recipe. Have you seen our Cheesy Beer and Bacon Soup Recipe? This one too is amazing and easy to make in the Crockpot. 😁

  • Does the cream cheese curdle or separate?

  • No it blends together well.

  • This soup is amazing! So so yummy anf wonderful for a cold day! My husband is a picky eater and he loved it!

  • I make this alot. But I put half a bag of cubbed hashbrowns in and the real potatoes with ham. Amazing!

  • I've had this recipe saved for almost a year and finally trying it today. Only changed one thing by using real bacon I diced and fried up. Cannot wait!!

  • How long will it keep good frozen in freezer??

  • I've made this several times. Its so good and easy to make. You just dump it all in. My family loves it!

  • That is awesome, You should have him try out Broccoli Soup recipe or the Beer Cheese Soup recipe also. Both of them are just as good. 🙂

  • Sounds good, but these frozen diced potatoes are made from real potatoes. They are just for saving time. 🙂

  • Hope it turned out awesome. The bacon bits we use are made from real bacon. We used these little quick ideas during this video to show a quick and easy way to make this soup without lacking the taste.

  • Id say it would last a couple months frozen. After that it would probably loose it's flavor getting frost bitten.

  • So awesome to hear. You should try our Broccoli Soup recipe or the Beer Cheese Soup recipe. Both of these are just as tasty and easy to make. Be sure to share with friends and family.

  • I made this for a retirement party and it was amazing!!!

  • nuice

  • Would love to make this in a pressure cooker ,any suggestions how long to cook??

  • How many people does one batch serve? I need to serve 8 people.

  • Oh wow! It looks nice but I wonder if I could use facon and vegetable broth. I'm a vegetarian and I would love to find a way to make it veggie friendly.
