My husband has a deep love affair with soup. I am not such a huge fan. I enjoy an occasional bowl, but it is not something I would ever order at a restaurant- I will go for the salad 100% of the time.
Being the wonderful wife that I am, however, on occasion I will indulge his cravings and cook up some soup. He happened to order a cheddar cheese potato soup at The Corner Bakery on Saturday night and it looked good. So tonight I decided to give it a try.
I found a recipe that I had all the ingredients for and whipped up what is sure to become a winter staple! It was DELICIOUS!!! With homemade rolls, it was incredibly filling as well. It's a very healthy, hearty, easy to make soup so I thought I would share:

Cheddar Potato Soup Recipe
1/3 c chopped onion
1/3 c chopped celery
2 T butter
4 cups diced peeled potatoes
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups shredded cheese
2 c milk
pepper, paprika, salt

Saute onion and celery in butter. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Simmer covered 10-15 min. Puree in the blender. Return to pan, stir in cheese, milk, and seasonings. Cook over low heat until cheese is melted.

This is from Taste of Home.
Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!


  1. Sounds good, but as a fan of chunkier soups, I wouldn't bother pureeing the veggies before adding the cheese, milk, and seasonings.

  2. That sounds great! Alan and I love soup. Spencer, not so much. I'll try it and let you know what we think. Thanks!

  3. Mmm... yummy! I love potato soup and cheese soup so this sounds like a winner to me! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Oh my gosh I'm drooling reading this recipe! I am making this for sure!
