This is a good recipe. I did do a few things different. I added a few cloves of fresh minced garlic and shredded carrots, I also added more onion and celery than what the recipe called for. i cooked the veggies in bacon grease instead of butter to give it a bacon flavor. I added a tablespoon of flour to thicken it up and added 4 slices of american cheese to make it creamier along with another cup of milk. I also did not cook the bacon in the soup just used it as a topping. I think it looses its consistency too much when cooked in liquid and is much better with some crunch, besides cooking it in the bacon grease gave it alot of bacon flavor. Overall my family loved it! This is my favorite kraft recipe so far. Even though I would never tell my grandmother this, this potato soup blows hers out of the water!
