Wisconsin Potato Cheese Soup

This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. I was raised on a farm and these ingredients were readily available in our area. We have many potato farms nearby, and, of course, being "America's Dairyland," there's always plenty of cheese and milk for this great-tasting soup. —Darlene Alexander, Nekoosa, Wisconsin
