“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!”

I submitted this recipe and wanted to note that I actually boil the potatoes in 2 Tablespoons of salt and 1 Teaspoon of pepper. I also use 1 teaspoon of dill...or maybe a heaping teaspoon of dill and about 3/4 of a 32 oz. block of Velveeta cheese because I like the soup pretty cheesy. I have tried adding other vegetables, etc. but for some reason, I think it is the tastiest as is. I hope you enjoy it!



What can I say that hasn’t been said? This is a great recipe, with great taste and texture. M’Lady actually thought that I had added cream to the dish! This will definitely be made again and again in this household. We are eager to try this with other cheeses, too.

It's Sunday--my weekly soup making time! I boiled my potatoes in homemade chicken stock and because I only had half the amount of Velveeta called for, I used half Velveeta and half Cracker Barrel 2% extra sharp white cheddar. Nice basic cheddar potato soup that went well with black forest ham grilled cheese. My oldest boy chowed down on this with me. I did add a bit of Frank's Hot Sauce when I ate mine. Next time, I might add a little more cheese. NOTE: Almost all of the ingredients I used in this soup I bought cheaply at my Grocery Outlet. This soup cost next to nothing to make and it doubled real well.
