1 stick butter
2 onions chopped
3 stalks celery - chopped (didn't have any - used celery seed)
4-5 carrots chopped
2 T ground mustard
8-10 medium *Yukon Gold Potatoes chopped (varied in size - I like a chunk soup)
4 cups cheddar cheese
4 cups Chicken Broth
1 can Carnation Milk
1 cup milk
parsley (chopped for garnish)
bacon (cooked and crumbled)
Salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion in 1 stick of butter (Scream Paula Dean!)
add celery, (or celery seed), mustard,
Bring to boil, and then simmer until fork tender.
I mash the potatoes a bit, then add
the Carnation Milk, regular milk and cheddar cheese.
Stir until creamy.
Chop some parsley to add freshness.
Oh, yummy, bacon.
Sprinkle some cheese, parsley, and bacon on top and serve.
