This potato-cheese soup is super creamy and luxurious. You and your guests will keep coming back for more. It features onions, carrots, paprika, dry mustard, and cheddar. The soup is perfect to serve on a chilly winter night, as it's the perfect comfort food. You can double the recipe and freeze in containers for easy future meals. Simply rewarm on the stove or in the microwave and dinner is ready. If you have it on hand, thyme and potatoes are a delicious combination that we find irresistible. Add 1/4 teaspoon crushed, dried thyme along with the seasonings, if desired.
