Daddy's Whisker Soup

Daddy's Whisker Soup

Junebug's Mom 20

"When I was a child, my best friend and I loved when my dad made this cheese, potato soup with dill. It looked to us like dad he had shaved all of his whiskers off into the pot of soup, earning the name Daddy's Whisker Soup!"

  2. Stir the milk and cubed cheese into the potatoes. Season with dill, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
