Easy Peasy Cheesy Potato Soup

First of all, please note the juxtaposition of ingredients. You will believe me when I say it was for artistic sake, right?

Here is how today's cooking lesson went. Bailey grabbed ingredients from Barnum, there was screaming, crying and tug of warring involved. They were exiled from the kitchen and then I opened all of the ingredients and dumped them into a single pot!

Despite the events described above, it was VERY palatable!! I hope you agree!
Easy Peasy Cheesy Potato Soup

3 cups of diced potatoes (We used frozen!!)
1/4 cup of chopped onions (Also frozen!)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup of water
1 large jar of cheez whiz
1 cup of shredded cheddar jack cheese
32 oz of chicken broth
1/2 cup of crumbled bacon pieces (optional)
pepper to taste
salt to taste

Place potatoes, onions and broth in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer until veggies are tender. Gradually add milk, cheez whiz and bacon pieces. Cook until thick. Add shredded cheddar cheese and cook until melted. Add water if a thinner consistency is desired.

Serve with lots and lots of Saltine crackers!!


  1. Um, is bacon ever really *optional*? I am loving your weekly Circus Fare posts! You, Barnum & Bailey will have your own Food Network show before you know it. Paula Dean, you better watch out! :)

  2. OMG sounds delish...definitely on the menu at my house for next week!!! :)
