    Good side dish or soup. I use Hormel bacon bits (lower fat than bacon) and add bacon salt which boosts the bacon flavor and is 75% lower in sodium than regular salt. I also add a little chipotle pepper to kick it up a notch. - 8/30/08

    I didn't have half and half so I substituted more milk. It still game out great. I added extra bacon, garlic powder and some shredded colby jack on top. YUM! I'm going to try it with chunks of ham in it next time too! - 8/31/08

    Easy and naturally sweet. I agree with CrafyC's additions. A low sodium chicken or vegetable broth would make a good base. - 8/30/08

  • Really good! I used frozen corn but still cooked with onion. I also added just a dash of cayenne pepper so it has just a little kick. It seemed a little bland to me. And I did use 2% milk and found that 1/2 c potato flakes was too thick so I ended up using about 2 1/2 cups of milk total. - 6/3/11

  • Sylv from Oz. Please could you remember your recipes are going world wide? What is 'half and half' ? Also too much sugar in this, I have been fructose free for 7 months, yay for me, no poison in my body any more. Plus I have lost 7.2 kilos!! Thanks - 4/15/11
