Reviews forWisconsin Potato Cheese Soup
"Very easy and excellent taste. Used medium cheddar cheese and diced the potatoes into 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes. Wondering if I can freeze some leftovers?l"
"Good start of the recipe but needed a lot more for my taste. Add added extra cheese and an extra potato, bacon, garlic, thyme and rosemary. It turned out delicious! Also I didn't puree the potatoes, I just cut them small. Cooking is fun, play with the recipe and make it your own.Nicole K. Milwaukee Wisconsin"
