Recipe by Junebug's Mom
"When I was a child, my best friend and I loved when my dad made this cheese, potato soup with dill. It looked to us like dad he had shaved all of his whiskers off into the pot of soup, earning the name Daddy's Whisker Soup!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

potatoes, peeled and diced
yellow onion, diced
1 (1 pound) loaf
processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed
dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
I submitted this recipe and wanted to note that I actually boil the potatoes in 2 Tablespoons of salt and 1 Teaspoon of pepper. I also use 1 teaspoon of dill...or maybe a heaping teaspoon of dill and about 3/4 of a 32 oz. block of Velveeta cheese because I like the soup pretty cheesy. I have tried adding other vegetables, etc. but for some reason, I think it is the tastiest as is. I hope you enjoy it!
We thought this was ok. I will not bother making it again. I have made ones that are much better.
What can I say that hasn’t been said? This is a great recipe, with great taste and texture. M’Lady actually thought that I had added cream to the dish! This will definitely be made again and again in this household. We are eager to try this with other cheeses, too.
It's Sunday--my weekly soup making time! I boiled my potatoes in homemade chicken stock and because I only had half the amount of Velveeta called for, I used half Velveeta and half Cracker Barrel 2% extra sharp white cheddar. Nice basic cheddar potato soup that went well with black forest ham grilled cheese. My oldest boy chowed down on this with me. I did add a bit of Frank's Hot Sauce when I ate mine. Next time, I might add a little more cheese. NOTE: Almost all of the ingredients I used in this soup I bought cheaply at my Grocery Outlet. This soup cost next to nothing to make and it doubled real well.
This was delicious! Made it last night and every kid - and hubby - said, "Good soup!" (and I make a LOT of soup) Creamy, delicious and very comforting.
This soup was great! When my very picky family first saw it, they turned their noses up. I told everyone that they had to at least try it, and every single one ended up loving this soup! My potatoes were very large, so I used 9 instead of 12. I also used only 4 cups of milk...I saved the potato liquid and used a cup of that in place of the last cup of milk. I hated to see that flavorful water go to waste, and the soup was very rich, creamy, and yummy without the last cup of milk! This recipe is just what I wanted, cheap, easy, family friendly, and yummy! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing this recipe! I put too much milk so I added some instant potatoes to thicken, a bit of garlic powder and my husband requested some bacon bits to put on top. I didn't have any dill, but if I missed anything, I sure didn't taste it! First cold day after Summer and yummy hot soup for dinner. I'll make this again and pass it along as well!
I cut this recipe in half since only 2 of us were eating. I substituted 8 oz. of extra sharp white cheddar and 12 oz yellow cheddar for the processed cheese. I grated it and added it to the milk and heated and stirred the milk until it all had melted. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. We enjoyed it and will be making this again over the winter, although I may add a bit more dill and maybe a shake of worstershire. Thank you JM for a soup that will warm many a cold night at our house.
