Recipe by richcat

I work in a nursing home. One of my residents told me how to make this. Whenever I made it,I would bring her a bowl. God bless her soul, I always think of her when I make it. To slice potatoes and onion, I use a salad shooter.


  1. Peel potatoes and slice and put in 4 qt kettle.
  2. Add sliced onion.
  3. Add just enough water to cover, boil till potatoes are tender.
  4. Sometimes I have to ladle some water off after boiling (BUT DO NOT DRAIN WATER).
  5. Add butter and cheese.
  6. Stir to break-up potatoes.
  7. Add milk and pepper.
  8. Simmer 10 minutes.
  9. Serve and add your own salt.
  10. Good with crusty bread or toast.
  11. Sometimes I sauté celery and onions, add carrots, garlic, chicken broth, ham, bacon or use evaporated milk. Use different potatoes for a change. ENJOY!
