4 cloves garlic chopped

24 ounces deluxe American cheese

1 stick butter

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

16 to 32 ounces milk

  1. In 6- or 8-quart pan, melt butter on medium-low heat with onions. After onions are translucent, add garlic and rosemary for 2 minutes.
  2. Add sausage and cook another 2 or 3 minutes. Add potatoes and cover potatoes with water. Change heat to high and bring potatoes to a boil.
  3. After potatoes become very tender, to the point of falling apart, reduce heat to low and add cheese a little at a time until all melted. Add milk, salt, and pepper and cover for 15 minutes.
  4. Great with saltine crackers.
