About this recipe: A superbly satisfying cheese soup. Broccoli, processed cheese and Cheddar cheese is simmered in a thick, white soup base. Serve with fresh crusty bread.
I have made this recipe twice for crowds and it has been a big hit! I only do 2 things differently. First, I saute an onion in with the butter in the beginning. Also, I have thrown in cubed potatoes with good results. This is a great "cheese soup base" that could be varied many ways-- chicken, carrots, potatoes, Kielbasa, etc. - 09 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a delicious recipe...MADE CHANGES, but I don't think they were too drastic. The entire family from baby to hubby LOVED it. My changes were: 1) used water and 3-4 Tbsp. chicken base paste (Tone's brand from Sam's -- no MSG)for broth, 2) Omitted salt, but used all that pepper! (Salt to taste before serving), 3) Cornstarch, for thickening: 1/3 cup mixed with a cup of the cold water or broth and brought to the boil in "step 1", 4) Broccoli: I steamed florets and small stems until just tender, then CHOPPED to my liking . I didn't measure, but would use more than two heads next time. 5) Added 3-4 Tbsp. white wine worcestershire. WOW!!!! If you can't find, try a small amount of regular. 6) Used 8 oz of sharp natural cheddar- no processed cheese. More would be even better. - 22 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly after scaling it down to 6 servings. I would recommend doubling the amount of brocolli. DON'T FORGET TO SCALE IT DOWN. Enjoy... - 11 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
