CeLynn's Famous Potato Soup

4 medium potatoes
1/4 onion

2 sausages, chopped
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)
2 cups milk or half & half
water to cover
salt & pepper to taste

Peel and chop potatoes into chunks,place in a medium to large size pot,cover with water.  Place on stove over medium-high heat.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook until tender.
Chop sausage and 1/4 onion, place in a skillet and saute until sausage is cooked.  Drain grease off, and set aside.
Remove potatoes from heat and drain off half of the water. (if there is 1 cup or less,do not drain off the water)
Using a potato masher,mash the potatoes.  If desired, leave some of the chunks unmashed.  
Add 6 oz. cheese,sausage and onion mixture to mashed potatoes,stir to combine.  Add the 2 cups of milk or half & half,return to stove and heat through.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with remaining cheese and green onion
yield 6 servings

I usually serve this with my Cheddar English muffin bread (toasted).
