peeled and cubed potatoes
ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
shredded American cheese
This is a fantastic recipe. I had to make a few modifications because where I live in France, some ingredients are either not available or not exactly the same. Therefore, I substituted cheddar cheese for the american cheese and bacon for the ham. The other thing I always always do is sautee the vegetables (onion & celery) first. I just prefer the flavors that sauteeing brings out. I Fried the bacon and set aside. Used 2 tbsp. of bacon drippings to sautee the onion & celery then followed the recipe as stated. I added the bacon (crumbled) at the point where the ham would have been added. This is by far my favorite potato soup recipe that I've tried.
This was OK, but not my favorite. I have a similar potato soup recipe that uses smoked sausage and corn (no celery) along with the cheese and potatoes and we like that a whole lot more!
Made this for dinner last night...and OH MY GOD!!! This is IT!! I didnt have any ham so I use some keilbasa...threw that in while it was simmering, also added some crushed garlic...YUM..It's all gone and I am going to make more for dinner tonight. Perfect for COLD WINTER NIGHTS!!! Thanks Marge! This is a keeper!
THIS SOUP IT GREAT!! THE FIRST TIME I MADE IT THE SOUP WAS TOO THICK FOR ME, SO ON THE SECOND TRY I DOUBLED THE WATER AND THE BULLION AND ONLY USED 1CUP OF THE CHEESE. I WILL BE MAKING THIS REGULARLY.
Ok, I don't often leave "reviews" but this time I gotta! My hubby said he wanted potato soup for dinner so, not having a great recipe, I ran to allrecipes.com and tried this... it's fantastic! Everyone, including my picky 8 and 2 yr. olds loved it! I'm going to email this to my sisters and mom. Yum. The only thing I did differently is to use Colby cheese as it's all I had in the fridge.
My whole family enjoyed this recipe. I substituted frozen cubed hashbrown potatoes for the fresh potatoes to speed up preparation.
This soup was very good. I tripled the recipe, added broccoli, sauteed the onions before adding them to the potatoes, and partially blended it before adding cheese and ham to thicken it a bit. I served it with Fantastic Foccaccia Bread. Thanks for the recipe!
We really like this soup. It was easy and fast. I like that it uses ingredients I already have on hand!
