Golden Cheese Chowder
4C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
6 Large Potatoes
1C. Celery, sliced
1C. Carrots, sliced
1/2C. Onion, diced (we were out, so I chopped up a few green onions)
1 head of Califlower, chopped (I added this ingredient!)
2C. Ham, diced and cooked (I used 1# of cooked bacon)
Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk. Cook over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Add cheese, stirring well until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
Combine the water, salt and all the vegetables in a large stock pot. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and cover, simmering for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in cheese sauce and ham. Cook over low heat until thoroughly heated, but do not boil.
*At the end, I added about 3-4 more cups of water to thin the soup out a little bit and I added a little bit more salt too;)*
Enjoy this delicious meal with some homemade biscuits and a salad or fruit on the side~
