*10 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

*1/4 cup onion, chopped


*1 lb. cooked ham chunks or country smoked sausage

*3 tblsp. flour

*1 cup milk

*1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese, cut into small cubes


Boil the potatoes and onions together until just tender. Pour off most of the water, return the potatoes and onions to the pot, and add milk to barely cover. Add the meat and heat until simmering. Meanwhile, put the flour and 1 cup of milk into a jar and shake well. When the soup starts to bubble, and while stirring constantly, gradually add the flour and milk mixture. Stir for several minutes until slightly thickened. Turn the heat to very low, add the Velveeta cheese, and let set for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted.
