Wisconsin Potato Cheese Soup

This recipe comes from the 1st Assembly of God cookbook, Kenosha WI. I have MANY cookbooks and have been looking through them and finding great recipes. We all liked this soup.

In a large saucepan, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Add potatoes and broth. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 12-15 minutes. Allow mixture to cool a bit.

  1. Oh, this looks yummy. My kids always like to eat at Jims (in San Antonio) just so that they can have their cheese soup. This will be a great treat for them.
