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!"

"I just finished making this and it turned out really good was wondering if it would be thick enough and it was perfect. I added a handfull of frozen corn and that seemed to top it off! Will make this again, it was such a quick and easy recipe!"
