Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup {from Lynnie}

 1 TBSP butter
½ onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced (I use garlic salt)
2 ½ - 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup chicken broth
¼ tsp pepper
Salt to taste
1 C milk
½ C cheddar cheese
1/8 C Parmesan
Broccoli florets, steamed
 1.       Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté til tender. Add potatoes, chicken brother, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes (or until potatoes are tender). 
2.       Meanwhile, steam broccoli
3.       Transfer half of soup to a blender and process until smooth. Return to saucepan.  Stir in cheeses, milk, and broccoli and cook until heated through.  Season with extra salt, pepper, and Parmesan, if desired.
*Delicious in homemade soup bowls!
