Wisconsin Potato Cheese Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. I was raised on a farm and these ingredients were readily available in our area. We have many potato farms nearby, and, of course, being "America's Dairyland," there's always plenty of cheese and milk for this great-tasting soup. —Darlene Alexander, Nekoosa, Wisconsin

"This recipe was quick and easy - and very TASTY! Next time I will use more potatoes or a little less broth. I like my potato soup a little thicker. Easy to modify to one's own taste!"
