Potato Cheddar Soup

on November 22, 2013

I think we have a new comfort food, and this is comfort food of the highest quality.

Potato Cheddar Soup is great for a rainy night, or for a snowy night, or for a quick weekend supper.

Sometimes nothing will do but a big steaming bowl of soup.

I don’t remember Grandma making this one, but it’s a good one.

This soup is very cheesy and delicious.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Potato Cheddar Soup

4 slices of bacon, crisply fried and crumbled

3/4 cup of unseasoned croutons, crushed

1 cup of onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

3 Tablespoons of butter

4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 Tablespoon dried parsley (I didn’t have fresh)

1 quart chicken broth

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Salt and Pepper

Mix bacon and croutons. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, sauté onions and garlic in butter.

Add chicken broth, potatoes, parsley, salt and pepper.

Simmer 20-30 minutes until potatoes are tender.

Remove from heat and process in blender or food processor until smooth.

Add cheddar and warm gently so the cheese melts.

Serve with bacon and crouton mixture.


Is there anything better than bacon?


I think you could leave the soup chunky if that’s how you like it.


Good served with whole grain bread and a salad.


This soup is so thick and cheesy and good.

It will be your new comfort food, too!
