Earlier this week I shared my famous lasagna recipe, and today I’d love to share one more of our family’s favorite dinner recipes ~ cheesy potato soup. Yum!

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • 12 cups potatoes (peeled & cubed)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups white onion (chopped)
  • butter
  • 1 family size cream of chicken soup ~ 26 oz.
  • 1 soup can of milk
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese

*This recipe serves 10-12 people, so if you have a smaller family you may want to half the recipe.

First you’ll peel & cube your potatoes, & then you’ll put them in a large pan with 4 cups of water (or enough water to cover your potatoes).  Bring to a boil & then turn the heat down & simmer.

While the potatoes are simmering sauté the 2 cups of white onions in butter until the onions are clear.

When the potatoes are just getting tender stir in the onions, 1 can family size can of cream of chicken soup, 1 soup can of milk & two cups of mozzarella cheese. Stir until the cheese melts & soup is warm & ready to serve.

  1. I'm eager to try this. Although right now we're a family of two so I might have to get creative.

  2. That looks lovely! My husband had to work early today in the freezing cold and mounds of snow - so this might be just the thing to cheer him up when he gets home.

    I only had one question - and that was: Do you add the onions and other ingredients to the potatoes with the water left in them, or do you drain the water from the potatoes before adding in the other ingredients?

    Thanks a bunch for sharing a bit of your life with us!

  3. Yup! I can see why that is a favorite recipe!
