Cheesy Corn & Potato Soup

Cheesy Corn & Potato Soup:

diced potatoes 
diced onions
minced garlic
2 C sweet corn (my freezer corn)

Put 1 tbs. butter in pan, melt with salt and pepper.  Add the above - stir around.  

Add to kettle and cook till boils: 

2 C chicken broth
1 C milk

In another pan, make a rue.  Add equal parts butter (fat) to flour.  I put in 2 Tbs. butter, salt and pepper, once melted add flour and wisk together.  Add 2 C milk - 1 C at a time - till thickened; add 2 C cheddar cheese. 

Put this cheesy base into the soup.  Cook till potatoes are tender.  

Did you know that Wisconsin farmers grow great potatoes and sweet corn - we do.  In addition to leading the nation in cheese production, this soup reflects my neck of the woods.   

Super easy and delicious!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

The winter we've been having, girl, this will be perfect...why didn't I make this already this winter, is beyond me...we raise potatoes too, big time. We got half the amt. of snow as predicted but it was wet and heavy, still plenty deep at a foot. Bill plowed for nearly 4 hrs. today and that was just our horseshoe drive and by the garage...ask Shan. It was that heavy. There is barely enough room to push it anymore with 5 rows of snow over 7-8 ft. high. The grandloves are loving it tho. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hug Shannon for her ol' Aunt Dar
