I followed the instructions and ended up with stringy clumps of cheese.
Excellent and easy, followed others suggestions and left some chuncks along with some carrots and broccoli. A definite keeper!! thanks for sharing!
Delicious soup! My hubby loved it. I omitted the celery the first time I made it, when I make it the next time, I will leave some of the potatoes chunky, as some others said, and I am going to add chopped, fresh broccoli to it while the potatoes simmer as well. I may also top it with green onions to give it some color! Yum!
It was so full of FLAVOR!! To make it vegetarian~ I used vegetable broth instead of the chicken broth. Also- I was out of onions so I substituted green onions. They worked great!!
Wonderful soup! I used a mild cheddar cheese and fat free milk. The kids and hubby loved it.
