This creamy potato and cheddar cheese soup is a perfect choice for a delicious family dinner. You can prepare it quickly and tastes creamy and soft. It is going to be fabulous if served with some pieces of bread.
First, you need to prepare the ingredients.
Fry the bacon slices in a pan, then keep them aside.
