Crock-Pot Gouda Potato Soup
A few weeks back I made, for the first time, Crock-Pot Gouda Potato Soup. I am a member of BzzAgent and was sent a coupon for a free package of Arla Dofino Cheese. I had also just emptied my home grown potato’s from our garden so of course, we made Gouda Potato Soup! Arla Dofino cheese is the type of cheese you find in the Deli area of your Grocery Store and we purchased the Arla Dofino Gouda Cheese in the Big Red Circle Package. I have never had Gouda Cheese so honestly I had no idea if it was going to be a really strong flavor or a flavor I just didn’t like, but I decided to take a leap and try it. I was delighted to find it was a very smooth, calm, pleasant and not too strong flavor. My children all enjoyed it and none of them realized they were trying out a different kind of cheese. It cooked really well, was not stringy nor did it curdle and I reheated the soup twice in the next several days and it reheated nicely as well. I was very impressed. Using a regular cheddar type cheese tends to make things lumpy and it doesn’t always blend well, and we can use meltable American cheese but I would prefer to use a real cheese whenever possible. Well I am sold, that is for sure. The hardest part of putting this soup together was peeling potatoes and shredding cheese. Not too shabby. I am all about things being easy. I can definitely recommend Arla Dofino Gouda Cheese. As with many crock-pot recipes you can change up this recipe with different veggies and the exactness of amounts is not necessary.
As stated previously I did receive a free coupon from BzzAgent for a free package of Arla Dofino Cheese, we have not been compensated otherwise.
