I’m always on the lookout for recipes that work well for a large family. This one fit the bill!  It comes from The Maiden’s Menu, published by King’s Blooming Rose.

I actually got to meet Sarah Bryant, editor of King’s Blooming Rose Magazine and author of The Family Daughter at the Omaha Teach Them Diligently Convention!  We kept just barely missing each other at nearly every conference this year, but finally ran into each other at the Grace & Truth books booth and snagged some photos.

Now I realize we are getting into summer, but I still serve soup in the summer months because of how easy it is to make.  Try this soup using a crock pot to keep the heat down in your kitchen.  Double it and freeze (minus the sour cream) for a quick meal later.  Enjoy!

  1. I was wondering how many this recipe feeds (approximately)? Did you need to double it for your family? I have 6 kiddos (age 11 down to 6 mos). The 4 oldest eat as much as my husband and I do most of the time! I feel like I am feeding a small army… but I am so thankful they are healthy and eat well! Blessings!

  2. I appreciate your blog. My children are grown – but so much of your content, is exactly how we raised our children. So needed by young mothers todays. I pass along to others – OFTEN! Keep writing!

  3. Love the summer crockpot! Between that & the grill, I keep my kitchen cool.
    This recipe looks like a crowd-pleaser! Will definitely have to try it.

  4. The soup looks lovely. I might try it with my 2 sons but I am not sure I could get my husband to eat it. :)

  5. We also love soups in the summer as well if they are cooked in the crockpot! Easy and much cooler than cooking with the oven or stove. I especially love soups that use sour cream. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thanks for the recipe. Soup is perfect for the summer, one stove top burner versus a 375 degree oven warming the whole house? It’s a no brainier, I’ll cook soup any old day! This one looks easy and tasty, can’t wait to try it.

  7. I LOVE THIS RECIPE! Use it all the time. One of our favorites that I got from a friend a long long time ago! I’d love a copy of that book! 😉

  8. I love cookbooks!
    I am always on the lookout for recipes that are healthy, tasty & not time consuming.
    Thanks for sharing the soup recipe with us!

  9. The soup looks yummy~I’ll definitely have to give it a try.
    I’ve been wanting to get this cookbook for my daughter’s hope chest~thank you for the opportunity to win one. And if we don’t win, we can definitely use that 10% code! :-)

  10. I love finding new soup recipes! Planning to try it with Quorn vegetarian meat substitute this week. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Tried the soup last night–had to modify slightly as I am allergic to potatoes (and a host of other things). Used cabbage instead. I also used Italian seasonings as I didn’t have any basil. Loved it. As not all of my family cares for cheese, I left the cheese out so each could add what they wanted. Worked out very well. Only other change–my husband added chili’s–he likes things spicy (another thing I am allergic to so can’t put in). Thank you for the recipe and the give away.

  12. Soups are so wonderful to make. I agree that they are easy to make. What I enjoy best is that soups are easy to improvise and experiment with. One time I went to the fridge and took out some different vegetables that I had left from the week and whipped together to make my own homemade style vegetable soup. It was fun experimenting and knowing that everyone else actually enjoyed it too!

  13. We LOVE soup for supper, anytime of year. This recipe sounds great! Thanks for a chance to win that cookbook! :)

  14. Thanks for this opportunity! I have been hoping to get this cookbook! The soup recipe looks great..can’t wait to try it out!

  15. Hi Amy,
    I just stumbled on this recipe and it sounds delicious!! I think my kids and even my husband will eat it. Two questions for you. What kind of cheese do you use, and have you made it in your crockpot? Wondering how long to keep it in there for. Thanks so much!
