Restaurant quality soup that is good year round! I love to make this if I have left over ham, although a ham slice works just as well.

Ingredients

3 1/2 c
diced, raw potatoes
1 stalk(s)
celery, diced
1 medium
onion
2 clove
garlic
1 1/2 c
ham, diced
3 c
water
2 Tbsp
chicken bouillon granules
1/4 tsp
salt (check at end)
1/2 tsp
black pepper
5 Tbsp
butter
5 Tbsp
flour
2 c
milk
2 1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp
parsley flakes or fresh

Step-By-Step

1Place potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, ham and water in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until potatoes are soft.

2Stir in chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.

3In separate sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and continue to cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.

4Slowly, whisk in milk and continue to cook and stir until it starts to thicken, usually 4-5 minutes.

5Add cheese and blend well. Stir the cheese mixture into the stock pot until heated through. I use a potato masher to break up some of the potatoes to make it a little thicker.

6Add parsley flakes or fresh, chopped parsley before serving.
