Kitchen Korner - Cordon Bleu Potato Soup - by Dolly Lawler

A good friend, Judy Carney, who goes to Florida every winter and runs a soup kitchen down there, gave me this recipe.  The term "Cordon Bleu" caught my attention right away.  When I see that term, I always think of chicken or pork stuffed with ham and Swiss cheese.  That's what the term has come to mean to cooks in this day and age, but the term actually means "Blue Ribbon."  How can I say this?  Whether we're talking ingredients or quality, this is definitely a "Blue Ribbon" soup recipe.

(Makes 8-10 servings.)


4 cups diced potatoes
2 cans (14 ½ oz.) chicken broth
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
2 cups diced cooked ham
2 cups 2% milk with ¼ cup flour whisked into it
2 cups chunked, cooked chicken

Simmer potatoes in broth until tender.  Add rest of ingredients and heat (stirring often) until soup is hot and cheese is melted.

Ladle into bowls and eat up!

Enjoy, Dolly Lawler
