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.
ENJOY!
