A hearty soup that is very creamy and delicious. Warms you up on a cold winter day. Easily doubles or triples to make extra servings and tastes even better after it's been reheated. Best of all, it's easy to make!

Very delicious but the recipe is missing some information. It doesn't say what to do with the milk. So I added the milk just before I added the butter/flour mixture and it came out just fine. Read More

I think this recipe is amazing!!! I make enough to freeze about once a month. I've had my mom over for lunch and she loved it as well. People ask for the recipe all the time! The only real change I made was to use chicken broth instead of water. As well I always add extra veg and I leave the skins on my potatos. Read More

This potato soup is great and very easy to make. The first time I made it I followed the recipe as stated and the second time the only change I made was that I used Yukon gold potatoes and a little chopped onion and they both turned out great. The only other suggestion I have is to top with chopped green onion and crispy pre-cooked bacon before serving. Great recipe. Read More

This soup was really good and is a family favorite. My husband loves spicy foods and this soup had just enough spices to please everyone. It is a really cheesy soup and very delicious! I top my soup with extra cheese bacon bits and chives. I recommend this soup to everyone and will fix it again! Read More

Absolutely wonderful!!! Yum yum yum! I had to find a good potato cheese soup recipe when I found out the restaurant I used to eat it at used chicken broth (I am a vegetarian.) This was simple to make and so good! We used vegetable broth instead of water and we used twice as much. I also added onion and garlic with the carrots and celery. I would highly recommend trying this...the perfect potato cheese soup! Read More

This soup is sooooo good! As a vegetarian it's hard to find potato soups that have no bacon in them, so I made some myself. But couldn't have done it without this recipe! Only thing is it came out pretty thick- I had to add water to thin it out. Read More

Needed a bit more flavor. I think next time I'll use broth instead of water. Oh and I made a white sauce w/margarine flour and milk then melted the cheese into it. Then added the potatoe/broth mixture into the white sauce. Read More

I would give this 10 stars if I could. It is very easy to prepare and tastes like something you would get out at a restaurant! It's that good. The only change I made was that I used soy milk (unsweetened) because that's the kind of milk I have on hand. I added chopped bacon right before serving it. A delicious addition. Also a little green onion. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good potato and cheese soup! Read More
