Serves:

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

5
large potatoes- peeled, cubed, boiled
1
large white onion- finely chopped
1
stick butter
1/2 c
all purpose flour
6 c
2% milk
2 c
shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp
salt
pepper to taste
1 tsp
marjoram flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Thoroughly wash, peel and cube 5 large potatoes. Add to large stock pot of boiling water and boil for approximately 15 minutes or until potatoes reach desired tenderness. Stain and set aside.
2
While potatoes are boiling, in a large saucepan melt entire stick of butter. When butter has melted, add chopped white onion and cook for 2 minutes.
3
Add salt, pepper and flour to butter and onion to create a roux base. ( this will be thick and probably form a ball-- that's okay)
4
with a wire whisk, gradually add the milk- stirring constantly to ensure there are no lumps. Continue to stir the milk mixture over medium heat until it begins to thicken slightly.
5
gradually add cheese, stirring constantly until soup is smooth. Add cooked potato cubes, stir until well combined. Serve hot!
