    4 cups diced potatoes
    1/2 cup diced celery
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    2/3 cup bacon bits
    4 cups water
    2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules (I used Wylers Sodium Free)
    1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
    5 tablespoons I can't believe it's not butter, light
    5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups milk
    2/3 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)

    Note: You can also use ham in place of the bacon bits, that was how the original recipe was made.

1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, bacon, and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper. (Tip: If you like thick soup, like I do, put half of the potato mixture into a blender to puree it, then add it back to the pot. )

2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, add shredded cheese, and cook until cheese is melted. Serve.

Makes about 12, 1 cup servings.
