Finely chop the onions. Peel and dice the white potatoes. Crush the garlic cloves. Grate the mature Cheddar.
- 1 Melt the butter in a pan, then cook the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes, or until soft.
- 2 Add the potatoes and stock, and bring to the boil; simmer for 15 minutes. Move on to the next step while you wait.
- 3 Dry-fry the bacon until crispy, then set aside.
- 4 Add the milk to the soup and warm through.
- 5 Remove from the heat, stir through three-quarters of the cheese, then whizz with a stick blender until smooth.
- 6 Season to taste, adding a little water if you prefer a thinner consistency.
- 7 Divide among bowls to serve and garnish with the bacon and the remaining cheese.
Really simple and really yummy! Loved this and will be making it again. Added in some extra garlic and it was delicious :)

So easy to make and beautifully tasty!!! Makes the most amazing hearty lunch tucked up infront of the fire with some homemade rustic bread! A*
Really delicious recipe. I've made it twice already and will definitely make it again. I take it in as a lunch sometimes without the bacon so having it at home with is a real treat.
