Pot O' Gold Potato Soup

Kim Biegacki


This is a thick, creamy and cheesy lovin' kinda soup. If you love your potatoes and cheese then this will be a soup that you enjoy. It's easy to make but you may have to add a little more broth to get to the consistency that you like your soup so have a little extra on hand just in case it's too thick.
