Apple Cheddar Soup Recipe

I love trying something different now and then, especially if it involves soup! Give me just about any soup in the winter and I am one happy girl. Add cheese and it's even better. πŸ˜‰

This Apple Cheddar Soup recipe is a little different but it's fun and very tasty. I love that it uses 2 of my usual winter cold storage items, apples and potatoes. This soup is pretty rich so it would also make a good side.

This recipe makes enough to serve 4. I didn't make this particular one in the slow cooker but it could be easily adapted to be made that way.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • butter to fry onion in
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons flour or starch
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


  • In a large sauce pan, fry the chopped onion with the butter until the onion is translucent.
  • Add in the apple juice, chicken broth, and water.
  • Stir in the potatoes and salt.
  • Simmer mixture until potatoes are starting to get soft, add in apples, cook until potatoes are fully cooked.
  • In a small bowl, mix the milk and flour (or starch) and slowly stir into soup. Cook for another few minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Add in cheese and stir until cheese is melted.
  • Serve warm, you can add a little more cheese on top or a little sour cream if you like!


Like most soups, this one is great served on a cold winter night. As I mentioned above, this is a great recipe to use produce from your cold storage!

sounds delish! I am going to adapt it also to make it from emergency food stores using dehydrated potatoes/dried onion/dried apples/powdered milk/chicken bullion/freeze-dried cheese and an apple juice box!

That’s a great idea! You can have the whole thing put together and ready!

I love warm apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese melted on top, I can’t wait to try this!

Interesting! Sounds good and very seasonal.

If you like this fruity but savory soup, you might also like Apricot Lentil Soup, which also is made from things you might store through the winter: lentils, dried apricots, carrots, and canned/frozen tomatoes.

What a beautiful soup πŸ™‚ I like the apple and cheddar combo. I made a grilled cheese sandwich a while back that had apples, cheddar and bacon and it was delish. Thank you so much for linking this recipe up at Recipe Sharing Monday. I hope to see you back next Monday. Have a good weekend!
