The state of Wisconsin is nicknamed “America’s dairy land” for good reason. It offers a wealth of incredible cheeses and other dairy products—as well as signature dishes made with them. Here, we’re serving up a Wisconsin-style potato and cheese soup, made with sharp cheddar. The flavorful, rich broth is brimming with leek, sugar snap peas and creamy Yukon Gold potatoes. And for an extra kick, we’re finishing the soup with a sprinkling of chives.
