Rated 4 out of 5 by Brett from Follow recipe to the letter. Good recipe. I goofed and put bacon in too soon - still tasted good. Leave out the dill if this is for kids or picky eaters - just keep it simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StevenT from Oh So Good! I received a Vitamix for Christmas and have been using it several times a week. I have been making hummus weekly and I am beyond happy with the creamy texture. Last night I made the Bacon Cheddar Potato Soup, I thought it was SO GOOD! I added more cheese once in the soup bowl and mixed in, the result was perfect on a cold and rainy night. Sure you can doctor it up the way you like, but I followed the recipe as instructed and was not disappointed. I will be making this soup often, along with other recipes in the cookbook that I received with my Vitamix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by candycrusher from Family winner! I made this soup with vanilla almond milk coz that's all I had, also added more cheese (we like it) , onion and some water due to thickness. Added potatoes and bacon at end as recommended. Turned out great, even for my picky daughter! Next time I think I will use regular almond milk tho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SKSKEETERS from Good, But Not Great I really wanted to make soup tonight, so I went in search of a recipe to make. This one seemed simple and sounded yummy. I omitted the dill and only used half of the rosemary that the recipe called for, but it was still overpowering, in my opinion. I would make this again, but with less rosemary and a bit more salt and pepper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sms59 from Easy & Tasty I swapped out 1 cup of skim milk with 1 cup of heavy cream. Freshly grated Cabot Seriously sharp cheddar cheese.Used fresh Thyme instead of rosemary and other spices. Also added roasted corn that was mixed with caramelized onions., Next time I'm going to follow recipe as intended to see if the low fat cheese and skim milk makes the recipe that much less richer & creamier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Banker852 from Great soup! This was the first soup recipe I made with my new Vitamix and I loved it. I didn't have the herbs so I left them out. The only thing I might do different next time would be to just cut up the last potato and mix it in for a little more texture to it, but otherwise great recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shelli from So disappointed There is a distinct gross after taste. And the consistency is awful. I even tried to add extra salt and milk and even went as far as adding sour cream to add creaminess. Didn't help.

Wit says baked in the ingredients

So was the peel used for the recipe? I saw the previous answer about this but it did not specifically state that you use the peel in the stated recipe. It only said if you want to.
Yes. I made this using the peel and it was great. The peel does have a lot of nutrients and the vita mix makes it so smooth you can't really tell it's there..

Do you really need to bake the potato first? And if so, for how long?
Yes, if you do not bake the potato before, your soup will taste very earthy. It would be the taste of a raw potato... Bake the potato until it is fork tender. You can use the oven, or you can use a microwave. Time will depend on how large the potato is.

Hello, I have the 6300 with the soup variable, can I use that without going thru starting at 1 and stepping up the speed?
You certainly can!

I don't have a 'high' speed. Can I just blend on 10 for the entire time?
Yes blending on 10 is equal to blending on high speed with other machines.

Do you take the peel off the potato?
You can use the peel of the potato if you would like, the peel has a lot of nutrients in it.

How can you cut the sat fat even more?
To cut the saturated fat even more you could use skim milk instead of milk and remove the Bacon from the recipe.
