This recipe is so easy. My mom used to make a big batch of this (she would doupble the recipe) and it would last for a couple of days. My whole family loved it. Now I make it for my own family.

First let me say prep time is longer than 10 min. Peeling that many potatoes takes some time.The soup was some what bland It needs salt and pepper and about 1/3 more cheese. The soup is good and I will make it again, with some changes. Thanks for the recipe.Made for Spring 2013 PAC
