Daddy's Whisker Soup

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!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine potatoes, onion, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 tablespoon pepper in a large soup pot. Cover with water; bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until the potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain potatoes, and return to pot.
  2. Stir the milk and cubed cheese into the potatoes. Season with dill, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note
  • For a cheesier soup, use 2 pounds of cheese.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We thought this was ok. I will not bother making it again. I have made ones that are much better.
