My father was Swiss, so cheese has been a basic food in our family as long as I can remember. With its big cheese taste, you'll want to prepare this soup often. A steaming bowl plus a salad and a slice of bread makes a wonderful light meal. —Carol Smith, New Berlin, Wisconsin

"Absolutely amazing. So good I only got four servings lol. So easy to make, had everything on hand. I used good old cheddar cheese, and grated one garlic clove near the end and let simmer. Thank you for a great recipe."

"I love this soup! I add sliced carrot and celery rib, and I use unpeeled red potatoes (or new potatoes, as we call them around here). I mash about half of the potatoes and leave the rest in chunks."
