This homestyle soup is packed with a blend of tender potatoes cooked in a chicken broth with Sargento® Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese and topped with toasted slices of French bread as a delicious and hearty garnish for a soup that’s delightfully creamy and full of robust flavors

  • 1 Tbsp. butter or oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (2 large) russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 (14 oz.) can chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon (optional)
  • 8 (1/2-inch) slices French bread baguette
  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 to 14 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a blender or food processor; pureé until smooth. Return mixture to saucepan. Stir in milk; heat over medium heat until hot (do not boil). Season to taste with salt.
  3. Meanwhile, place bread on a foil-lined baking sheet. Toast lightly in a preheated 400°F toaster oven or oven 5 minutes. Turn toasts over; top with 1/2 cup of the cheese and pepper. Continue to bake 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. Ladle soup into four bowls; top with remaining cheese and bacon, if desired. Serve with cheese toasts.
