Easy Homemade Broccoli Cheddar Soup and bread Bowls
Hello Pretty Ladies,
Happy Sunday and the start of November. The busy season has officially started. Today I am hoping on real fast to share one of my family’s favorite soups. Easy Homemade Broccoli Cheddar Soup and Bread Bowls. I made this on Halloween night, it is warm and yummy and so festive served in these cute pumpkin bread bowls. It would be darling to serve the day after Thanksgiving with homemade Turkey noodle soup from leftovers.
Have a beautiful & blessed Sunday.
Broccoli Cheddar Soup Ingredients
These are the simple ingredients you’ll need to make this broccoli Cheddar soup recipe:
1 tablespoon butter
½ onion, chopped
¼ cup melted butter
¼ cup flour
2 cups milk (or heavy cream if you like a rich soup)
2 cups chicken stock
1 ½ cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets
One cup matchstick-cut carrots or Chopped (I like rounds)
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
2 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
How to Make Broccoli Cheddar Soup at Home
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Whisk 1/4 cup melted butter and flour together in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Continue to whisk and cook, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk if necessary to keep the flour from burning, 3 to 4 minutes.
Gradually add milk while whisking constantly; stir in chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Cook until the mixture is thickened, about 20 minutes. Add broccoli, carrots, celery, and sautéed onion; simmer until all the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
- Stir in Cheddar cheese until melted; season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
* I do cheat and make mine in the crock pot and let it simmer all day.
There are tons of variations and options to make this soup your own. My family loves it when I add sausage. You can add extra veggies, different cheeses, garlic to your onions, a little seasoning salt to the finished soup, green onions, sour cream, and topped with Bacon.
Pumpkin Bread bowls
I picked up these darling Pumpkin Bread bowls at Great Harvest here in Utah. It’s a local chain that makes these darling bread bowls all season long. Perfect for your fall soups and darling for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Check your local bread and sandwich soups and see if they make them as well. These are not pumpkin-flavored, just regular bread.
