Stacy’s {Winning} Cheese-y Potato Soup

This past December, the high school where I previously taught, had a soup ThRoWdOwN {not sure exactly what they called it} amongst their staff.  A friend & former colleague of mine, StAcY, won the contest.  I asked her if she would mind me sharing her prize-winning recipe.  Here it is:

Stacy’s Cheese-y Potato Soup

Ingredients:

  • Potatoes (8-10 medium)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large brick of Velveeta cheese
  • 1 onion
  • 1 cup real bacon pieces or 6-8 pieces of bacon fried and cut up into small pieces.
  • Roll of Jimmy Dean hot sausage
  • 3 cans of corn
  • 2 & 1/4 cups Bisquick mix
  • 2/3 cup milk

Peel and cut up your potatoes.  Place in a large kettle.  Add enough water to completely cover all potatoes.  Boil for 20 minutes.  While potatoes are boiling, saute onions, brown sausage, and fry bacon.  Cut up Velveeta into small pieces and melt.  Once potatoes are finished (DO NOT DRAIN WATER), add onion, sausage, bacon, corn (undrained), and melted Velveeta cheese.  In a separate bowl, stir Bisquick mix and milk until soft dough forms.  Place on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix.  Knead 10 times—once soup is very warm, add Bisquick & milk dumplings (spoonful at a time), and then add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, stir and heat then enjoy!

Lara and I actually tried the soup when our husbands were away at the Cotton Bowl.  {Yes, sLuMbEr PaRtiEs at our age are still fun!}  The soup was YuMmY!  How could it not be with a brick of Velveeta and heavy whipping cream?!  It certainly had that “CoMfOrT FoOd” quality.  The only thing that would have made it more perfect is eating it while watching a blizzard outside our window.  But hey, we weren’t complaining about the 70+ degree weather we were having that day!!  Now that the weather resembles more of the wintery kind, give it a try.  Once you do, you’ll understand why it took home the PrIzE!

  1. I have a similar recipe, it uses instant potatoes instead of Bicuick and no sausage. cheddar cheese (grated) instead of velveeta. corn if you like, I generally leave it out because to much carbs for Forrest.(diabetic)
