Broccoli Potato Cheese Soup


  • 8-10 med. potatoes, peeled
  • 3/4 cup carrots, diced
  • 3/4 cup celery, diced

  • 6 slices bacon, cut in small pieces
  • 1-2 lbs. Velveeta cheese
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 10 oz. box frozen chopped broccoli

Cook potatoes until tender. Cook celery and carrots in small sauce pan with a little water to cover veggies. Fry bacon with onion; drain. When potatoes are tender do not drain water; mix with electric mixer until potatoes are mashed.

Add bacon, onion, carrots, celery, bouillon cube and frozen broccoli; simmer. Add cheese until melted. Add salt & pepper, to taste. If too thick, add milk. Variation: Omit broccoli and add cauliflower or asparagus.

Put chicken broth in kettle with potatoes. When potatoes are almost done, add broccoli and cook until just done. Do not overcook broccoli. Saute' carrots in a saucepan with onion and margarine. Put that in the kettle with broccoli and potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese; let melt and then add milk. Do not let soup boil once you have added the milk, but do let it get hot. Thicken this with a little cornstarch mixed with cold water. Just add small amount at a time, so that it does not get too thick.
