A definate favorite of my family's. Freezes well. A very filling soup. I serve it with a nice fresh loaf of bread or some fresh rolls. Prep time is considerably less if you have & use a food processor to chop and grate veggies. Good leftover as well.

This soup is wonderful, I did leave out the carrots ( not to fond of them) and added more cheese. Made a double batch, not a drop left. It won't be long before I make it again.

This is a great potato soup. I quadrupled the recipe for daycare and so I would have some leftover to freeze. Made with 1% milk and it was still creamy enough. I followed the recipe exactly, but I love that it is a basic recipe that you can embellish to your taste. I am sure that I will make this again and again, adding something different each time. Maybe bacon, or swiss or green onions...
