Potato Cheese Soup

Simple Potato Cheese Soup | Organized Island

The weather is warming up a bit here in California, just in time for spring break season. But we still have some cool evenings. For these nights, I love to make this tasty, creamy potato cheese soup. This is one of my favorite soups to make when I want to warm things up. You can also top it with cooked bacon bits and sour cream for more of a baked potato soup.

Potato Cheese Soup

5 cups water

3 large russet potatoes, peeled and diced

2 stalks celery, chopped

1/2 cup onions finely minced

1 cup milk

3 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon chicken boullion granules

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


In  a large pot, combine water, celery, and onions over medium low heat.

Add diced potatoes,  chicken boullion granules and salt and pepper.




Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook 10-12 minutes until potatoes are soft.

While the potatoes are cooking. Melt butter in a saucepan. As soon as butter is melted, whisk in flour slowly. Then gradually add milk to the flour mixture and whisk continuously. Heat 5 minutes and pour into soup mixture.


Add Milk

Stir often and continue cooking soup about 15 more minutes over medium-low heat (soup will thicken).

Potato Soup

Pour into soup bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese.


This simple potato cheese soup recipe can be made in less time than it takes to watch an episode of DWTS.Makes 4 hearty servings.
