6-8 medium potatoes
3 tbsp. butter
1 medium yellow onion (pureed in food processor)
1 tbsp. minced garlic (I use minced in a jar.)

1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Dash white pepper
4 1/2 C. milk
1 C. grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
1 C. (or more) diced or grated ham
Peel and dice potatoes. Cook in salted water until very tender. In medium soup pot, melt butter and saute onion and garlic. Stir in flour, salt, and peppers. Stir in milk a little at a time. Add garlic salt and Lawry's to taste. Cook until bubbly. Add cheese and stir. Pour most of liquid off potatoes. Add potatoes to milk mixture. Add ham.
