  • 2 cups peeled and diced potatoes

  • ½ cup diced carrots

  • ½ cup diced celery

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups water, or as needed to cover

  • 2 cups milk

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained

  • 2 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Place potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, and salt into a large pot. Add water to cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes; do not drain.

  2. When the vegetables are almost finished, combine milk, butter, and flour in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly until butter melts and mixture is smooth and thick, 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Pour hot milk mixture into cooked vegetables. Add corn and Cheddar; cook and stir until Cheddar melts, about 3 minutes.
