  • Sprinkle each bowl of soup with shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Replace 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of 5% cream for an extra creamy potato soup recipe.

Oma says,

I love that Alana inspired me to make this creamy soup. The first time she tried it, her comment was, "Oma, this is my new favorite!"

Germany and its Potatoes

Potatoes were brought to Germany in the 1700's but not widely accepted. In fact, it's said that Frederick the Great gave the farmers potatoes to plant.

They, in turn, threw these strange tubers to the dogs. The farmers then reasoned that because the dogs refused to touch them, they couldn't be good.

But, my, how things changed! Germany became one of the world's largest producers of potatoes. There are now so many varieties available in German stores.
