New Recipe Review – Lightened Potato Soup

Last week I tried making Lightened Loaded Potato Soup, a recipe I found from Handle the Heat


I’ll be honest…it was way too bland for me, which was strange since I tend to like meals with less salt/pepper.  I know one thing that affected the flavor was that I didn’t add in the green onions.  I’m just not an onion fan, as they tend to bother my stomach.  I might consider adding in some garlic powder instead to see if that would help next time. 

As for preparation, it was fairly easy to throw together.  I did change a few things in the recipe and steps…I used skim milk, fat-free sour cream, and turkey bacon.  For the steps, after I heated the bacon in the microwave, I crumbled it and added it right into the soup mixture, then heated everything up again and let it simmer for about 7 minutes.   After I ladled it into the bowls, I shredded some cheddar cheese right on top.

Overall I would give this recipe a 6 out of 10…with some more seasonings, it would end up being much much better :)
