Without oil or butter, I also threw the green onions and bacon in the pot first to sweat some of the flavor out of both. Then I threw in the 2 cups of potatoes. Once everything started to smell really good, I put in the soup and milk as directed. The trick to make everything thicker is to let it reduce more than the recipe calls for. Once I got it boiling, I let it simmer on medium high heat until all the ingredients were suspended in the broth, also stirring constantly to avoid boil over. I added some garlic and celery to the recipe as well. This soup came out hearty, and thick like a chowder should be.

Instead of 3 cups of milk I used 1 1/2 cups of milk and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth. I also added 1/2 teas onion pwd., 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 teas salt, and 1/8 teas of pepper. That really helped with the flavor and it wasn't bland at all! After bringing the soup to a boil on high I only turned it down to med-high and frequently stirred for the 10 mins. Then when the soup was finished I added about 1cup to 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. It made it amazing and just like the potato soup I make from scratch but easier! YUMMY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family liked the chowder very much. My family liked the chowder very much. I doubled the recipe, used 4 cups of milk (instead of 6), and added 1 cup of ham cubes. I garnished the bowls of soup with shredded cheddar cheese and thinly sliced green onions. As someone else noted, the soup burns on the bottom of the pan. As a result, I spent a lot of time removing the burned pieces before reheating it in the microwave oven. I am considering cooking it completely in the microwave oven next time to prevent the scorching problem. When I put the leftovers in the refrigerator, I added a little milk since it had thickened upon cooling.

We did not have a problem with the chowder being too thin because we added more than two cups of hashbrowns. Out of bacon, we simply used bacon bits. Out of green onions, we used dehydrated chives. It simmered for a while and became rather thick, so I added a cup of water. The frozen hash browns with peppers and onions is what we used. Very good. I'll make it again, and make certain to use more than two cups of taters. Also, we cooked the cheese in the soup, rather than adding it later. Next time I'll add a can of mushrooms. MMM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a baby shower I hosted this weekend. I made this recipe for a baby shower I hosted this weekend. After making it according to the original recipe and being very satisfied with the results, I then multiplied everything by 6 in order to get the number of servings I needed.The only thing I changed (in the original and when I multiplied)was using potato broccoli soup (not condensed) instead of the regular potato soup condensed. It didn't seem to affect flavor or appearance and everyone was asking for the recipe. Definately a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorry if this is a duplicate posting. Sorry if this is a duplicate posting. It didn't seem like it went through. This was very good and not hard to make. I did have to watch the milk to make sure it didn't boil over...I kept stirring the whole time it was coming up to a boil. Other than that, it was easy. Although not as thick as one made with cream, it was very tasty. We really liked it (two of us ate it all at one sitting), and would definitely make it again. I sent it to my daughters to make. Good one, Kraft Foods.

I made this using frozen shredded hashbrowns with onions and peppers to give it more flavor as it sounded a little bland. Also I used real bacon bits so I didn't have to cook bacon for this recipe. It was good, but needs some tweaking. I personally added hotsauce to it, but next time will be adding a cajun seasoning to it to boost the flavor, because it still is a bit bland for us. But it has given me some great ideas to use as a recipe base.

This is a great compromise. I did make a few adjustments to the recipe as recommended in a few other reviews. I added some garlic powder and minced onion--I thought that really helped the flavor! I also added a little flour to help thicken it up. Overall, a great soup! I will be making this again!
