I just came across your site and I think it's great! I have 4 children and they all just love this inexpensive soup recipe. Enjoy!

*  *  *


1/2 lb bacon
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 c. celery, chopped (we prefer with tops)
5 lb bag potatoes, peeled and diced
8 c. water
6 bouillon cubes
4 ounces (half block) cheddar cheese, shredded


Fry bacon in Dutch oven until crisp, remove bacon from pot, drain fat reserving about 2 tablespoons. Fry onion, garlic, and celery in bacon fat until tender, not browned.

Add water, potatoes, and bouillon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cover, simmering until potatoes are tender. Stir in cheese until melted into soup. Stir in crumbled bacon, and serve.

This recipe serves about 6 to 8, considering most families eat more than a normal 1 cup serving.
