Cheesy Potato Soup

Posted on

Although I think of soups as more of a wintertime dish, they seem to taste just fine on a summer evening.  This hearty soup reminds me a lot of the cheesy potato soup I used to get at Marie Callender’s, back when they still had restaurants in my local area.

The only prep note I’ll mention is to garnish with parsley and/or bacon bits if desired.  Enjoy!

8 cups Peeled and cubed potatoes
2 cups Chopped onion
4 cups Chopped celery
2 tsp Sea salt
4 cups Half and half
6 Tbs Butter
2 cups Shredded sharp cheese
A/R Bacon bits and parsley for garnish
In a large pot, simmer potatoes, onion, celery and salt in just enough water to cover for about 15-20 minutes.

Remove half the vegetables from the pot; puree in a food processor just until smooth.  Return to soup pot.

Add half and half, butter and cheese.

Bring back to a boil, stirring constantly, immediately reduce heat to simmer until desired thickness is reached.  Serve hot.

I believe that my unique combination of education, ability and experience would be a real asset to your company, in any capacity that… Wait a minute – this isn’t a résumé, it’s a profile – I’m sorry, I was confused for a moment. In that case, I’ll just say that I live in the beautiful desert Southwest, I’m extremely happily married, I have everything I need and almost everything I want. Is that good enough? And one more thing… I probably wouldn’t be much of an asset to your company.
