Cheesy Potato Soup

Cheesy Potato Soup ~ Comforting, warming & very filling Potato Soup #Soup #Potato Soup

We have had quite a bit of rain the last few days... so welcoming after the heat during the past two weeks!

Rain always puts me in the mood for soup, and because it is only Roy and I over the weekends, I had come up with this recipe - the kids only like one kind of soup and that is my Split Pea Soup .

I wanted potato ... he wanted cheese - easy to combine!

This is what I came up with:  {Delicious by the way..}

Cheesy Potato Soup

2 TB Butter
1 large Carrot, peeled and grated
1 large Onion, finely chopped
1 cup Cabbage, finely shredded
1 t Garlic, crushed
1 t Celery Salt
6 large Potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
2 cups Chicken Stock
2 cups Milk
1/2 cup Fresh Cream
2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated

Grated Cheese and chopped Chives, to garnish {optional}

1.) Melt the Butter in a large pot {I used my pressure cooker} - add the Carrot, Onion, Cabbage and Garlic  - saute until soft.
2.) Add the Celery Salt, Potatoes and Chicken Stock to the pot. Cover and cook until the potatoes are done. {It took 15 minutes in my pressure cooker}- Add a little more Chicken Stock, when needed, if you are using a standard pot.
3.) Add the Milk and Fresh Cream to the Potatoes - mash it all up with a potato masher or blender, cook another 5 - 10 minutes over low heat.
4.) Lastly, stir in the Cheddar cheese until melted and heated through.

Garnish with extra Cheese and Chives, if using.

Serve, sit back and enjoy!
