    Potato Soup I

    This is my sister's original recipe for potato soup. At first, when I read the recipe, I thought that it would be bland and watery. Boy, was I proved wrong! It is very cheesy with an excellent flavor! I highly recommend you try this soup. It tastes absolutely delicious with french bread, so I would suggest serving this with my French Bread Rolls, also found on this website. Happy eating!

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 cup onions, chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 4 large potatoes, cubed
    • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
    • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • GARNISHES: 4 bacon slices, crisply cooked and crumbled; crushed croutons; green onions


    1. Combine onions, garlic, and butter in a Dutch oven. Cook for five minutes. Blend in chicken broth, potatoes, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
    2. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
    3. Remove from heat. Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in Cheddar cheese; heat thorough.
    4. Combine garnishes and sprinkle over individual bowls before serving.
      YIELD: 6 servings

    Final Comments

    Served with a salad and crusty french bread or rolls with real butter, this is perfect comfort food on a cold winter's day.
