Rec: Microwave Potato Soup

2 cups potatoes, cubes peeled and raw
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (we sometimes use the
dehydrated minced onion)
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 slices favorite cheese, thin slices (optional)
bacon or chives (to garnish)

Microwave potatoes, onion and water on HIGH 8 to 10 minutes
until potatoes are tender. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Mash
potatoes with a fork into large pieces. This does help thicken
the soup. Add remaining ingredients except cheese and cook
on HIGH 5 to 8 minutes to serving temperature. Garnish with
cheese and bacon or chives.

Serves 2 to 4
Refrigerate remainder
Can be reheated in microwave
