Grandma Brown's Cheese potato soup

From my lovely aunt Patty and aunt Al.

8 potatoes peeled and boiled
1/2 white onion chopped
3 cups of sharp cheddar cheese
1 can of Campbell's cheddar cheese soup ( if you want thicker soup you can add another can)
bacon fried and crumbled for topping ( save the oil)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic to taste

Boil potatoes with onion chopped,salt, pepper and garlic to taste. When they are done, drain off half the water and take a small bowlful out and cut into small chunks. Mash the rest of the potatos until it becomes like a thick soup. Add grated cheese to soup.  Add more salt, pepper and garlic to taste. Add a very small bit of the bacon grease for flavor. Stir back in potato chunks. Serve with bacon crumbles as garnish.

I guess we all make it a bit differently. That's a whole nother blog in itself.
