Potato Cheese Soup

I have been making this soup for my family since the kids were little and of all the soups I make, this is the family’s favorite. It’s a nice hearty soup, and wonderful during these cold winter months. It’s wonderful served with our Beer Bread. The recipe for this soup and the Beer Bread can be found in our cookbook, Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabins MORE Favorite Recipes. Enjoy!
