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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, ham and water in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until potatoes are soft.
2
Stir in chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
3
In separate sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and continue to cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.
4
Slowly, whisk in milk and continue to cook and stir until it starts to thicken, usually 4-5 minutes.
5
Add 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.
6
Add parsley flakes or fresh, chopped parsley before serving.
