How to make it
- In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cover cubed potatoes with water and boil until fork-tender. Drain all but 2 cups water; reserve the 2 cups cooking water and add back to potatoes.
- Add chopped onion, garlic and herbs to potatoes. At this point, decide what texture you want for your soup. If you want a smooth puree, mash all of the potatoes; if you want a very thick creamy soup, mash 1/2 of the potatoes; if you want a chunky stew, mash just 1 cup of the potatoes.
- In a bowl, mix together the milk, flour, salt & pepper. Mix well, no lumps.
- Add melted butter to milk mixture. Pour into potatoes and mix well
- Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly; add grated cheese; reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
