Creamy Potato and Cheese Soup

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me shortly after my husband and I were married. A bowl of the hot and creamy soup is perfect on a cold winter day.—Michelle Wollenburg, Beatrice, Nebraska

    It felt like it needed some spice, but it was good. I would make it again.

    Wow, my son made this and invited us over for dinne! Delicious, it tastes like there's cream in the soup and was surprised to find out my son used 2% milk not heavy cream. Definitely a keeper plus my son is a great cook, thanks to his many talents and Taste of Home! He also said the recipe was easy and he had all the ingredients at home. Yummy!!
