Creamy, Cheesy Potato Soup
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
15 ingredients
4-6 servings
Fast, easy, creamy, and cheesy! A great weeknight meal when you want something that will stick to your ribs but don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I found this recipe in my mom's recipe collection after she passed away and we love it! The recipe is very forgiving if you need to sub ingredients based on what you have on hand. Don't have broth? Use the potato cooking liquid with a tsp of chicken bouillon mixed in. No heavy cream? No worries, use all milk. I make a lot of soup when the weather turns cold and you know what they say about Wisconsin.... we have 2 seasons, Winter and Road Construction... we eat a lot of soup- LOL :)
