Broccoli Cheese Soup

This is a hearty soup, right on time for the cool weather coming. Great by itself, a meal in a bowl, this soup will please anybody and can be served for the casual or appetizer + 5 course meal. It's also a versatile recipe that you may dress up with bacon or chicken, for that go all the way meal.


1 16oz. bag Broccoli cuts or florets
1 26oz can Cream of Mushroom or 3 small cans
1 1lb block of cheddar of your choice (white,sharp...)
1 small onion minced or chopped (optional)
1/2 stick Butter/Margarine
2-3 cups chicken broth or 6-9 boullion cubes


In a large 5qt. pot, fill with water 1/4 of the way up and boil. When water begins to boil,add broccoli, onion and butter. If you are using boullion cubes, add them now, stir to dissolve. Chop cheese into cubes. Allow broccoli to simmer 5 minutes and then add Cream of Mushroom. Stir till fluid without lumps. Add cheese chunks and stir. Do not allow to boil! Simmer till cheese is melted and season to taste. If you used boullion cubes, it will be salty, so go gently with the salt. Enjoy with your bunny slippers on!

chuck, well, it depends on if it goes with the outfit or not. Now, if you're wearing bikini briefs,oh hell no. But if you're wearing boxers, it's ok. Unwritten rule.
