Soup weather is here. We love Wisconsin cheese soup and it is prepared in so many different ways when we go out to lunch.
The options are endless in what you can throw into this soup to make it a little heartier.
The great cheese soup base is what makes this soup amazing. You can never have enough bacon in Wisconsin cheese soup.
With this recipe we threw in some finely diced potatoes to fill ours husband’s tummies.
I love making soup on cold crisp days, and this one even calls my name in the summer. But there is nothing like snuggling up in a warm house with snow or rain outside, and enjoying a big bowl of soup.
