Panera Cream Cheese Potato Soup Recipe

Hubby and I make this soup a lot – an awful lot. Hubby first made this copycat soup recipe Christmas Eve 2010, and he has made it every Christmas Eve since, as well as many times in between the holiday. This is one fabulous soup. Everyone that has this Panera Cream Cheese Soup not only wants seconds but the recipe too!

Panera Cream Cheese Potato Soup Recipe Notes:

• I strongly urge you to use yellow Yukon gold potatoes if only for the visual appeal. I do not notice a huge taste difference, but the yellow potatoes do look a lot nicer.

• This is one of the easiest soups you will ever make. When we make double and triple recipes, Hubby uses his immersion blender and a huge pot!

• This recipe freezes beautifully.

• That’s it on the notes – Hubby’s been making this for almost 10 years now, and it is one of my three favorite soups, and by far the simplest to make!

    • Nancy I would think “no” for this soup. However if you give it a go and it works, would you come back and report?

  9. This is my favorite Panera soup! When I lived “up North” I could walk to Paneras every Thursday – that was potato soup day – and have a bowl with one of their fantastic hard rolls – what a wonderful meal!! Now that I live “down South” we do not have a Panera, and I surely do miss this potato soup! How thrilled I am that you posted this recipe – I will be making it tonight for sure!! Now, if you can tell me how to make those little hard rolls, it would be heavenly!!

  10. Here’s a link to a cheat of the Panera Sourdough Bread recipe, but I haven’t tried it myself – – baking.food.com

  11. Made this tonight… amazing! Great recipe =)

  12. Linda "Pete" says

    I’ve been making this for a few years now. In fact, I just made this soup last week as the weather is turning colder here in Michigan. My favorite way to make/eat potato soup! Easy to make and oh so yummy!!!

  13. Just send hubby to the store for cream cheese and celery! Gotta have celery in it too just as mom did!
    We’re lucky to have a Panera Bread only FIVE minutes away! Love those hunks of bread they serve with soups and salads!

  14. Yum! It’s definitely soup time here, so I’ll be putting this on my recipe list.

  15. I made this for dinner last night, and it was really good. Thank you for sharing!

  16. Looks awesome! Thanks so much for adding your recipe to the Delicious Dishes Recipe Party on Pocket Change Gourmet.

  17. LOVE this soup. Of course I’ve added so many different things. Bacon, broccoli , cauliflower. Instead of onions , I use leeks. I know it’s not the original recipe, but the oissibilities are so endless.

  18. Gena Shadwell says

    I’ve made this soup for years-it’s a mainstay! Use this recipe with asparagus or broccoli instead of potatoes-wonderful!!!
