I searched high and low for a basic potato cheese soup that my kids would eat (that means not many veggies!). This is it. So good and cheesy!

It's good. Not great, but good.

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot.
  2. Fry onions for 3 minutes (don't let brown).
  3. Add garlic and continue to sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the potatoes and water.
  5. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are very tender.
