Broccoli Cheese Soup

Do you love soup like I do? Well, this is the ultimate perfect dinner for those cold nights.

*Serves 4
  • 1 can chicken broth (about 1 3/4 cups of broth)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/3 c flour
  • 1/4 c butter
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 c milk
  • 1 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese, preferably sharp or extra sharp
  • 1/2 c shredded swiss cheese (smoked swiss is very good)
  • 2 1/2 to 3 c chopped, lightly steamed or blanched broccoli
  • Italian Bread Bowl
  • Simmer chicken broth and chopped onion for 15-20 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft.
  • Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  • In a separate medium-sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour and pepper.
  • Cook together for a couple of minutes, then whisk in warmed milk. Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until soup starts to thicken.
  • Add chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended.
  • Add cheeses and steamed broccoli.
  • Serve immediately.
