Terrific soup, without question one of the best potato soups ever. It's not a picky recipe either...I made a double recipe of it (large family) and had to substitute about a cup of the 5 cups of milk I needed with evaporated milk, soft cheese, sour cream, and half and half; plus, we were all out of swiss chesse, so I used two and half cups of Cabot extra sharp cheddar. The results were delicious--my mom loved it so much she had seconds and even thirds! Since I hadn't read the reviews before I cooked it, I was a little surprised about how peppery it turned out, but I didn't think it was TOO peppery, necessarily. Anyway, this soup does take some time, but it is so wonderful that it's definitely worth it. I will make it again in the winter, I'm sure.


This is a great soup, I tried it with Sharp Cheddar cheese instead of Swiss cheese and it was great!

I'm nuts too...

Just let me say that I am not the biggest swiss cheese fan, well, I wasn't the biggest swiss cheese until now. This soup is fantastic. I was sooo leary about the swiss, and as others stated, it really is tasty in this soup, in fact I wished that I had bought more, so that I could add more. My 11 yr. old ate 3 helpings! I used skim milk, added a few pieces of left over broccoli, chopped, & 1/4 c. of left over corn. I WILL make this again, it was great! Thanks Marilyn!
