5 tbsp butter, divided

1 medium onion, chopped

2 medium Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

1 large white potato, peeled and diced

1½ cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed


½ tsp dried sage

2 tbsp flour

⅓ cup apple cider

3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1 cup milk

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


Melt 4 tbsp butter in a large pot over medium-low heat and add the onion, apples, potato and squash. Season with salt and cook until the onion is soft, about 8 minutes. Stir in the sage and flour. Add the cider and cook over high heat, stirring, until thickened. Add the broth and milk, cover and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the potato is soft, 8 to 10 minutes.
