Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup

Dorene Nagy


I had to go to school on the late session, which meant I went to school at 1 pm and came home at 8pm. It was very hard to know what you would want to eat that late. This is one of my favorites anytime. It goes great with the All-Bran muffins. Won't fix it without them. Try it, its comfort food on a cold snowy evening in front of the fire place. Yum!

10 Min


30 Min


Stove Top


8 medium
potatoes, ( i like russet potatoes)
5 slice
american cheese
1/2 c
cheddar cheese
1 c
1 tsp
1 tsp
fresh ground pepper
2 Tbsp
chicken bouillon granules
1/2 small
onion chopped and sauteed in butter (optional)
1 box
chicken stock (added to water)

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel and cut potatoes into 2 inch squares. Rinse really good. Put in large saucepan and cover with water. Add salt and pepper. Let boil till potatoes are tender. Do not dump your water. Cut your american cheese slices in small stripes so will melt easy. Set aside with cheddar cheese. Put in 2 tablespoons of the chicken bouillon granules in a jar or 1 box of chicken stock in with potatoes. Add milk, and cheeses. Let simmer 10 minutes to thicken and get creamy. Optional: sauteed chopped onion added during simmer. Be careful not to let boil or cheese will separate. When you serve, garnish with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese on top.
