Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 11 medium), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups chicken broth

Preheat oven to 400°. Place potatoes and water in a large microwave-safe bowl; microwave, covered, on high until almost tender, 12-14 minutes.
In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute onion and garlic until tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in flour and seasonings until blended; gradually stir in broth and cream. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; cook and stir until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in cheeses until melted.
