REVIEW: recipe rating
Well, all the other reviews about how awesome this soup recipe is aren't wrong! It's incredible, actually. Quite possibly the best potato soup I've ever had (and I've tried a lot!) The crock pot gets the potatoes very tender and it has great flavor. Rich and filling. I loved everything about it!

This was the best soup I have ever made!!! It was very easy also. I only used half an onion and 1 clove of garlic; it was perfect for us this way. I will definitely make this soup often!!

This was a really good recipe. I did cut down on the potatoes from 6 to 4. I also cut down on the onion to half and the garlic cloves to two. I also added a little bit of the bacon grease and some Frank's Hot Sauce and it gave it a nice little kick.

hands down the best potato soup i've ever had! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! It's a new favorite here with us! I made it exactly as written and we loved it. It is a bit garlicky but we liked that a LOT!

This soup is incredible! I did use a small onion, not large (large is kinda relative so an actual measurement would be helpful). I did use three cloves of garlic but again that is one of those measurements that's not helpful. I used three small cloves and it was delicious. It's a rich soup so as much as I'd love to eat this every day, I'll have to save it as a treat. Although we're about to be snowed in so I'll probably make it as comfort food again!! Thank you for the recipe!

Way too much garlic...overpowering...next time no garlic and small onion. Loved the consistency of the soup though.

Amazing recipe!! OMG! We ate every drop. I only used a small onion (would be nice if it gave measurement in cups instead of just size) and it worked out great. Everyone in my family loved this recipe and that's rare. Best potato soup I think I've ever had! Thank you for sharing this recipe, it's going in my permanent rotation this winter!

The garlic and onion was overpowering. Too much! Won't be making this one again
