  • “This is great.I added a handful of chopped green peppers and some fresh mushrooms with the onions.Also, after I started making this I discovered that there wasn’t any milk, so I used frozen creamed corn instead of regular corn for creaminess and then added some of the water from cooking the potatos.This is a wonderful dish and I have now made it twice this week to use up leftover ham.”

  • “This was very excellent, my family loved it.I have already gave this recipe to a friend.It is fast and easy to make, short cooking time and makes a great meal if you are in a hurry,I added celery very thinly chopped and a cooked 2 carrot diced with the potato, to add color and taste to the dish. I used red potato keeptthe skin.”

  • “What great additions you all have thought of to the soup! Actually, mystery girl, I use canned milk ( 1 1/4 Cup) so I can use the potato water too. So full of nutrients. Haven’t tried any of your additions yet. We still love it plain and simple, fast and cheap. It is our comfort food all winter. LOL Thanks for all the comments. What a nice group of people you all are.Ann”

I normally follow the recipe exactly however, today I was trying empty the fridge and added 3/4 cup cooked floweerets from cauliflower, 1 1/2 ounce of cream cheese and 1/3 cup of sour cream at the end just melting the cheese and blending in the sour cream.
