6 Yukon gold potatoes, chopped

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

6 cups chicken stock

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon thyme

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 white onion, chopped

1/2 cup heavy whipping crème

Melt the butter with olive oil in your soup pot.  Saute onions in the butter until soft over medium heat, about 5 minutes.

Add potatoes and stock.

Bring to a boil.

Once you reach the boiling point reduce heat to a simmer and add cayenne pepper and thyme.  Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

Remove from heat and add garlic, heavy whipping crème, cheese, salt, and pepper and puree soup with a blender until desired consistency.

Fill serving bowls with soup and garnish with cheese and green onions.

Enjoy  💋
