COOK TIME
26 Min

Rich-as-can-be Potato Cheese Soup is a classic restaurant favorite that we can easily simmer on our stovetop. With a stick-to-your-ribs thick and hearty potato soup like this, it's easy to ladle up a satisfying meal chock-full of comfort.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 celery stalk, finely diced
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion, and saute 5 to 7 minutes, or until tender.
     
  2. Add chicken broth, potatoes, and vinegar; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
     
  3. Add flour, milk, salt, and pepper; cook until soup is thickened and heated through, stirring constantly. Add cheese and stir until melted. Taste for salt, adding more if necessary. Serve immediately.

 

Notes
  • Because salt levels vary depending on the type of chicken broth you use, you may want to taste for salt when you've finished cooking the soup.
     
  • To serve this hearty soup restaurant-style, top with bacon bits, sliced scallions, and additional shredded cheese.
