Cheddar Potato Soup

Cheddar Potato Soup

This is a quick and easy soup to make. The recipe is based on one from a Cooking Light cook book. I serve it with crumbled bacon bits, chives, and extra cheese--all on the side to top off the soup. The shredded potatoes can be found in the refrigerator section of supermarkets. I've used regular and spicy hash browns and both were good.

  • Yield: 5 servings ( Serving Size: 1 Cup )


  • 32 ounce(s) Chicke Broth
  • 5 cup(s) Shredded (hash brown) real potatoes Purchase shredded
  • 1 cup(s) Onion Chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) Pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Flour
  • 12 ounce(s) Evaporated skim milk Can
  • 4 ounce(s) Reduced fat cheddar cheese Shredded
  • 1/3 cup(s) green onions Chopped


Combine Chicken Broth, Shredded Hash Brown potatoes, Onion, salt and pepper in a Dutch oven. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

Combine flour and milk in a small bowl. Stir until smooth. Add to potato mixture.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until thickened.
