Potato Cheddar Cheese Beer Soup – Delicious creamy soup boasting flavor from beer, potatoes and cheddar cheese. Serve these traditional style or in a pretzel bowl. Either way you’re sure to love them!
I’ve been wanting to make a beer soup for a while now. And I thought it would pair up deliciously with pretzel bread bowls. Oh yeah! Of course it did. It was a perfect pair. As perfect as peanut butter and jelly or hotdogs and mustard.
Look at this scrumptiousness! ↓
You’re drooling aren’t you? I can tell by the look in your eyes. I do have a disclaimer for you.
I don’t drink beer. I don’t like beer. But I love beer bread so I’ve been just dying to try a beer soup. We’re such soup fans that it was bound to happen sooner or later.
And can you truly believe that I haven’t posted a soup recipe since November? There’s just something wrong with that! We’ve still been eating soup weekly but I’ve made a lot of past favorites like chicken pot pie and ham soup.
One of the favorites here on the blog recently is the Cheese Topped Creamy Cauliflower Soup. I don’t know about you but every time I hear those words together…creamy and cheese….my belly just starts growling. I hear it now. Signing off friends and looking for a spoon. Won’t you come over and join me?
Til we meet and eat again,
