Potato Soup with Cheddar and chives

Almost two weeks ago I saw this White Cheddar and Chive Potato Soup on Deb's site at Kahakai Kitchen.  I've been wanting it ever since and finally did make it, but had some adaptions due to lack of white cheddar around these parts.

Actually, we had this for dinner one evening with a Chardonnay and homemade French bread as our lunch was quite a heavy meal.  Have you ever eaten at 4 Rivers BBQ? Oh. My. It's so good but it's a substantial meal so....soup for dinner was definitely in order.

We didn't suffer with this light meal!


My adaptions were minor compared to the original recipe.  Yukons were supposed to be on hand but I had red creamer potatoes.  Probably it could have been creamier with Yukons but this was still very good.  I didn't have the white cheddar so I used regular orange cheddar.

Chives.  The package I bought looked good but once home, half were soggy so, not a good amount of chives on the toppings.  Still - I loved this soup.  We brought it for lunch this week at work and it transported and reheated well.


Linking up with Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for Souper Sunday this week.  Thanks for the inspiration! Her post and yummy soup may be found here.

I'm all for potato soup!

Yea! Potato soup and even better with cheese. The warm weather has arrived here, so it's now time for cold soups. We had a good one (hot) last week though - onion leek and fennel.

I think potato soup is going on this weeks menu!

Yum! I do love a good potato soup and this looks delicious. This sounds like a perfect meal - especially after a heavy lunch. I do love barbecue! I don't think white cheddar tastes that much different from really sharp regular cheddar and I like that you just used the potatoes you had. Need to add this to my menu.

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
