This is definitely one of my "go to" recipes. It freezes really well too, so it's great to make in advance or give to someone having a baby. This comes from the "All Recipes" Cookbook. A great find at Half Price Books. They also have a website, http://www.allrecipes.com/.
-2 Tbsp butter
-1 c chopped celery
-1 c chopped onion
-28 oz chicken broth
-3 c peeled and cubed potatoes (about 3 large baking potatoes)
-1 (15 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
-1 (2 oz) pkg country gravy mix
-2 c milk
-1 c shredded cheese (any kind that you like - I use the pizza blend)
1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.
2. Add chicken broth; bring to a boil. Add potato; cook over low to medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until potato is soft, stirring occasionally. Once potatoes are cooked, mash them. (I use a handheld mixer, but you can also just use a potato masher. Mash until the consistency you want - I like it a little chunky. :)
