Recipe – Potato Cheese Soup

Standard

Potato Cheese Soup

1 Onion, chopped

6-8 Large Potatoes, peeled, rough chopped

Chicken or vegetable broth to cover

2 cups grated Sharp or Med. Cheddar Cheese

Warm large stock pot or dutch oven and add vegetable oil (butter can be added for flavor) to cover bottom. Add onions and saute until soft. Add potatoes and broth to cover (water can be added to soften the flavor). Bring to boil, then reduce heat and cook until potatoes are soft. Mash with a manual potatoe masher or with a stick blender (be careful not to over blend, it’s best with some bites of potato left whole). Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off heat and stir in cheese just before serving. Sprinkle with fresh parsley if desire and more cheddar cheese as a garnish.

  1. Yummy – making the soup right now – thanks for tonight’s dinner. I’m adding ham to ours.

    Congrats on 27 years – they do go by so quickly. What a joy to be in the “middle” marriage years!
