Cream and mature Cheddar are added to pureed potatoes and the soup is seasoned with dill and cayenne for a creamy, warming meal.
I really liked this soup, I used cream cheese instead of cream though to make it even cheesier, it worked a treat - 21 Mar 2010
I have tried so many potato soup recipes - but this one tops the charts! Definately double or triple this recipe if it is served as the main dish. I did tweek it a little based on other reviews. I fried bacon and set it aside to top the soup when serving -- then browned the onion in the bacon fat. I added a can of Campbell's cheddar soup and used only half of the shredded cheese. I also omitted the extra salt. The cheese and chicken broth had enough salt already. I put half of the potato/broth mixture into a blender, but saved some potatoes cubed to give it some texture. I have a big family and they all loved it! - 02 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
i've made this soup at least three times now. instead of pureeing the potatoes i mash them somewhat in the pot with a potato masher. also, i add 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup milk instead of the heavy cream. this soup is excellant! - 23 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
