Reviews for Potato Cheese Soup
"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."
"my family loved it!! The only thing I will do next time is make a bigger batch."
"This is a perfect basic recipe with many possible variations"
"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."
