Potato Soup with Swiss Cheese

Debra Taylor


I love soup, I could eat it everyday if I could, so I am always looking for a good one. I found this recipe in an old, magazine. They where from 1957. My mom collected them because they had art work in them. I liked them for the recipes I use to read them all the time when I was really young, She would get upset if anything happened to them, She still proudly displays them on her entertainment shelf
