Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup Recipe – Cheap and EASY!!!

Get ready to have a new everyday food backup idea!  Kay made this very yummy soup while I was visiting her and her kids in Salt Lake City.  And when she gave me the recipe, I was so excited!  Cheap and easy – my favorite combo when it comes to cooking!  :-)

Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup

  • 10 oz of fresh or frozen broccoli – $1
  • 1/2 cup of water – $N/A
  • 2 cans of Cream of Potato soup – $2
  • 2 cups milk – $1
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese – $2
  • Total = $6 to feed about 4 people


Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup Ingredients

These are all of the ingredients that you’ll need for this soup. How cool is that?!


1.  Bring broccoli and water to a boil.  Then cover and simmer for 5 minutes.  Do not drain the water.


Boiling a little water with some broccoli – easy peasy!


2.   Stir in the canned soup and milk.  Stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.

Stirring in Potato Soup and Milk

Yep, I just added the canned cream of potato soup and some milk…


3.  Add shredded cheese slowly and stir until it melts.

Added Cheese

And the last part is, of course, to add shredded cheese.


4.  ENJOY!  Seriously, it is that easy.  You can dip in French bread or use a bread bowl – that choice is the hardest part!

End Result

Okay, so this was supposed to be a picture of the soup in my pretty bead bowl. Well, it looked delicious, so I ate it, and this was the end result. :-)
