Potato and Swiss Cheese Soup – Swiss cheese makes for a very creamy and rich soup.

This was a recipe I found by trial and error. The bacon and swiss cheese add a very complex addition to the potato soup.

    I am going to try this one out tonight for my parents. I expect I’ll substitute whole milk for the cream, to add fewer fat calories. One thing to remember on this recipe is that it seems to make approx. 8 servings, so plan accordingly. For instance, I am going to half the recipe, since I’m cooking for three.

      This is definately a favorite of mine, I came up with this recipe accidently, or rather when I was cleaning out the fridge. I like the cream for myself for two reasons, the taste, and then secondly if you are going to reheat, for me, I like the way cream reheats over regular milk. I hope you enjoy!

    has anyone tasted the seven element soup at the wild ginger in seattle, I have tried to get the recipe but to no avail. It is the best I have ever tasted. It has a chicken curry base.
