This is so delicious!  You can add 1 cup ham cubes, chopped cooked chicken or turkey, or flaked cooked cod or haddock, or just leave it vegetarian.

  • 2 cups chopped potatoes
  • 1/2 cup carrot slices
  • 1/2 cup celery slices
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 1/2 cups (10 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 (17-oz.) can cream style corn

In a large Dutch oven, combine water, vegetables and seasonings.  Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until veggies are cooked.  Do not drain.  Make a white sauce with butter, flour and milk.  Add cheese and stir until melted.  Add to undrained vegetables and then add corn.  Heat, but do not boil.
