The BEST Potato soup; I don't remember where the recipe came from, but this has become a regular at our house.

Right off the bat, by reading the ingredients, I can tell this recipe was different than the rest. I tried potato soup not too long ago at a restaurant with some friends and since then have been looking for the perfect recipe to mimic the delicious combination of flavors. The difference between this recipe and the six other recipes I tried, is the amount of heavy cream with the combination of the cheddar cheese! Without the cheddar cheese, the soup falls flat. To all who try this soup, enjoy, it's a delicious one!
