    Cheddar Potato Soup
    from Country Woman magazine

    1 large onion, chopped
    3/4 cup chopped celery
    1/4 cup butter
    5 cups cubed, peeled potatoes
    3 cups water
    3 cups milk, divided
    4 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup flour
    4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled

    In a large dutch oven, saute onions and celery in butter for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

    Stir in 2 cups milk, bouillon, salt and pepper. Combine flour and remaining milk until smooth. Gradually stir into soup.

    Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat. Add cheese and bacon; stir until cheese is melted.
