Ingredients

  • 4-6 Yukon Gold Potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 cup Chicken Broth
  • 3/4 cup Half and Half
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Onion finely diced
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium high heat.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent.
  • Sprinkle flour over mixture and stir to form a roux. Cook several minutes to get rid of raw flour taste.
  • Gradually add milk while whisking until roux is fully dissolved in the liquid. Now add half and half and chicken broth while stirring.
  • Add potatoes, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Reduce heat and allow soup to simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When potatoes are tender, either mash with a potato masher, use an immersion blender, or process in batches in a regular blender to puree soup.
  • With soup in pot, set temperature to low and add in shredded cheese a little at a time allow each to melt in.
