"This cheesy recipe is great for any type of weather and any type of meal. It is great as a leftover, if there is any left over. Garnish with cheese, bacon bits, croutons, or even add broccoli to the recipe for a different twist."

peeled and diced red potatoes
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
WOW!!! With a little doctoring this soup is out of this world. By far the best soup I've ever eaten. I added 1 Tbsp of extra finely chopped garlic, an extra cup of potato, doubled the onion and pepper, and added 1/4 cup thinly sliced carrot. It was delicious!!!
I am rating this recipe based solely on the content--I made it exactly as written. It is an excellent base recipe, but a little bland without some additions. I did garnish with real bacon bits before serving. Next time, I will add some more seasoning components: bacon in the soup, green onion, and maybe some garlic. A really good start to what could be a 5 star knockout recipe!
I would suggest making this a day ahead of time. It tastes better after all the flavors have set in. I added dill and skipped the cheese. When I serve it, I sprinkle cheese and some bacon bits on top. Great recipe that can be made many different ways!!!
What a terrific recipe! I was searching for one that did not use potato flakes or cream soups to thicken, and this one was just right. I made very minor variations, like adding a little parsley and extra salt for flavor, and adding some grated carrots. I also used Yukon Gold instead of red potatoes and skipped the cheese, since I made it to accompany a main course. Yum...even the children enjoyed it!
GOOD SOUP!!!!! SOUPERB! I followed the directions with some minor changes: I used turkey broth instead of chicken broth. When the potatoes were tender, I used a potato masher and slighty mashed some of the potatoes the make the soup thicken, and omitted the cornstarch. I added leftover turkey pieces, and various herbs and spices like paprika, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper. I don't like cheese in my soup and I thought 2 cups of cheese was a little much anyways, so instead I just sprinkled some cheese on the top when I dished the soup up in individual bowls. It was a great change from my usual "leftover turkey from thanksgiving soup", and a delicious way to use up leftover potatoes and turkey! Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
This is my daughter's favorite meal of all time. My only modifications are to use colby-jack cheese instead of cheddar, because that's what we usually have on hand, and to add about three tbsp of crumbled bacon when I add the potatoes, so the flavor cooks in. I do use Kitchen Basics gluten-free broth, since we are gluten-intolerant and this way I can be sure it's safe. But this is hands-down the best recipe I have found for potato soup.
This was a real easy recipe. I mashed the potatoes up some once they were cooked and instead of using salt and pepper, I used a hickory smoke/pork chop season mix for a little flavor. Very good!
This was wonderful. I have family that can not have wheat or gluten and I can make this with butter and keep it gluten free. I added ham and carrots for a change. Very good!!!!
