“You can use leftover meatballs instead of hot dogs and leftover corn in place of frozen in this yummy soup. It’s also okay to use any cheese blend you have on hand.” Jeannie Klugh - Lancaster, Pennsylvania
I came up with this comforting soup when I was crunched for time and wanted to use up leftover baked potatoes. Since then, it has become a mealtime staple. Its wonderful aroma always gets cheers from my husband when he arrives home from work. —Julie Smithouser, Colorado Springs, Colorado
"One of the ladies in our church quilting group brought this savory potato soup to a meeting," recalls Anna Mayer from Ft. Branch, Indiana. It's easy to assemble in the morning, then cook all day. Cream cheese and a sprinkling of bacon provide richness.
While on our honeymoon in New England, my husband and I walked into an old country store and were immediately swept off our feet by the aroma of soup that was cooking. We each ordered a bowl and found it to be absolutely delicious! We tried to persuade the cook to give us the recipe, but she said it was a secret. Upon returning home, I experimented until I came up with this recipe, which is very close.
“My garden produced a bumper crop of sweet potatoes and I created this soup to help use them up,” says Kathy Rairigh from Milford, Indiana. You’ll love the creamy texture and flavors of garlic and thyme.
