Some "cheesy" recipes

I made this soup Saturday, maybe i was just really hungry, but i thought it was very good. Had the recipe for awhile and never made it. Pretty easy, and it made the perfect amount for our lunch.

Cheddar Potato Soup
2 Large potatoes (4 Cups)
2 T finely minced celery
1 T finely minced onion
1 T grated carrot
2 C. chicken broth
1 tsp salt
2 tsp. vinegar
2 T flour
1 1/2 c. Milk
1 C. Cheddar cheese
1 T Mont. Jack cheese
2 Slices bacon
1 T. chopped green onion

Chop potatoes into bite-sized pieces..Combine the veggies with the stock, salt, and vinegar. Bring to boil and simmer 20 minutes. Whisk together the flour and milk in a bowl.
Remove the veggie mixture from heat and add flour mixture. Put pan back on and simmer 5-8 minutes.
Add Cheddar cheese to soup and simmer until melted.
Add remaining cheese and sprinkle bacon and green onion on top.

Another one i've had for awhile and just now got around to making it. Cheddar Stuffing Puff. Very easy, and a nice change from the usual side dishes.
Cheddar Stuffing Puff
1 Package (8 oz) crushed stuffing mix --(all i could find was 6 oz)
3 T flour
4 Eggs, lightly beaten
3 Cups milk
2 T butter, melted
2 Cups Cheddar cheese-shredded
In a bowl, combine stuffing mix and flour. Add eggs, milk, butter, and cheese. Mix well. Pour into a greased 2 qt baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

That cheddar puff looks really good! I'm always up for something cheesy.
