I love creamy soups, and the flavours of smokey Gouda yellow mustard create a comforting soup that is wonderful topped with crispy bits of prosciutto and croutons.

  • Portion size 4 servings
  • Credits : A Braun


  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 6 slices prosciutto torn into pieces
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 6 c chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 c milk
  • 2 c cream
  • 4 oz smoked Gouda cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 baking potatoes peeled and chopped
  • croutons optional


In a medium saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and fry until crisp. Remove and set aside. Add the remaining butter to the pan and sautee the onions until translucent. Sprinkle the smoked paprika and stir until fragrant. Add the potatoes, stock and mustard. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are soft. Puree soup until smooth. Add milk and check for seasoning (if it?s too thick, add a little more stock). Stir in the gouda until melted. Serve topped with the proscuitto (and croutons if you like).
