6 cups cubed potatoes (leave the skin on...its better for you)
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped celery
1 large yellow onion chopped
1 bunch green onions (chop whites up through light greens)
3 cups water
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1-2 tsp minced garlic
1-2 tsp salt
1-2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp butter
3 cups cream or milk
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups chopped ham or bacon
2 1/2 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese
In a large pot combine the water, bouillon, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, green onions, garlic, salt & pepper, and butter. Bring to a boil.
In another bowl combine flour and cream/milk
Pour flour/milk into boiling pot of veggies. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.
Add ham/bacon and continue to simmer for 30 minutes to an hour. Soup will thicken nicely.
Add the cheese either into the pot or just on top after serving....
Serve in a lovely breadbowl, too, if you can. :)
P.S. Just as I do with most of my recipes here,
I kind of just made this up
so if you try it leave a comment
and let me know if you love it or hate it. :)
