I can't take credit for this recipe. This is Bobby's recipe and he makes it better than I do.
Ugh, I said it.
There is definitely something going around lately. Everyone I know is sick.
Bobby has been in bed For 4 days and counting.. I decided to spoil him and make him his delicious soup.
It takes a while to chop up the veggies so make sure you give yourself enough time to prep.

In same pan that you sautéed the onion mixture add another cube of butter and approximately 4tbls of flour and make a roux…. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until flour is cooked out… add a bit of the chicken stock to thin out and add to other mixture.
Add 1 pint of heavy cream.
Chop up one slab of smoked ham - bone in.
Heat through… and just before serving add 2 or more cups of MEDIUM cheddar cheese.
This is one of my all time favorite soups! We decided we are going to make this soup a Christmas tradition. Every year on Christmas morning we will open presents and have a bowl of Bobby's potato cheese soup (I hope Bobby is making it). I recommend pairing this soup with Cheddar and Scallion Bread. Guess what my next post is?? Another soup!! DUH.
