This is really good!!! I sautéd the carrots and onions in a bit of the bacon grease for more flavor. I used a bit celery salt and Yukon gold potatoes since that’s what I had. I used a very small amount of Velveeta for its creaminess and for the rest I used aged cheddar cheese.
Best soup!!!! I made a batch and my husband who hates soup even loved it! His only recommendation was next time a double batch!!!
This really is the best potato soup ever! All I changed was adding more carrots (diced).
This recipe is almost the same as one i have been using however i use a combination of cream cheese and pepperjack cheese I add fresh diced celery and use celery salt instead of "seed" the person who said the celery seed was to strong must have used the wrong measurement or celery powder "great recipe"
Fabulous soup! My husband and 9 year-old grandson request this soup often. The only changes I make is to use Better than Bouillon chicken flavor mixed with water rather than broth and Mexican Velveeta cheese. A friend said she combined sweet potatoes and white potatoes in her soup and loved it.
I am awful at cooking, yet I found this recipe easy despite my challenges as a chef. Loved the flavor, so did my family. I did use the bacon grease that came out the bacon to sauté the onions then add the rest of the veggies.
This was so much more flavorful than most potato soups I have tried. In fact, I do not usually bother ordering or making potato soup as it is usually pasty and bland. I made as written except used only 1/4 tsp celery seeds. My husband enjoyed it and is looking forward to leftover soup this weekend. Thanks for new take on potato soup.
I can't believe anyone would think that 1/2 tsp of celery seed would have an overpowering awful taste in a big pot of soup. I thought the soup tasted fine, and could not taste the celery seed.
This is such a delicious soup! It’s hearty and a crowd pleaser. I also swap out the velvets for shredded cheddar or a mix shredded cheese and use some heavy cream in place for some of the milk.
So disappointed in this soup! I made this exactly as the recipe read. For my family, the celery seed gave this a bitter, awful taste. So upsetting to try a new recipe, spending time and money, only to be so disappointed!
