    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    This is from a cookbook called Wisconsin Potato Sensations. I bought it at the WI State Fair and while waiting in line for my baked potato I was thumbing through it and 3 different people said this is the best soup.

      Well, I kept meaning to pick up leeks at the grocery store, and every time I forgot them. So instead of the 1 cup leeks, I used only a 1/2 cup chopped scallions (because they have more onion flavor than the leeks). It still worked out fine. I did use beer for the liquid (and decided to drink one myself while preparing this... woo-hoo). This is a very hearty soup and don't think any additional sides need to be served with this (except maybe "BACON"). Thank you for posting. Hubby and I really enjoyed our lunch. (Made for PRMR)

      So thick, cheesy and yummy! This was tastier than other cheese soups that I've tried. For the beer, I used a light lager. I used a good sharp cheddar for this. I served this garnished with chopped scallions and garlic croutons. Everyone loved it. Thanx for sharing!

      This was very filling. I used 3 large potatoes and a medium sized sweet potato (it had to be used) and half a cauliflower I had forgotten about in the bottom of the fridge - I love recipes that lend themselves to what's in your kitchen.. I think bacon stock powder would be great in this too. I will make this again - thanks for posting!
