This is my go-to potato soup recipe. I found the recipe online about 4 years ago and still use it to this day. I double the batch when I make it and guests rave every time it’s served.

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.
