Broccoli Cheese Soup

  • I made this soup for lunch today and paired it with a smoke ham sandwich.  So easy to make and delicious on a cold day.


  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • touch of salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups milk (I used 2%.)
  • 1-1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup swiss cheese
  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups steamed broccoli florets, drained well

In a covered sauce pan simmer the chicken broth and chopped onion for about 15 minutes.  Heat the 2 cups milk for 1 – 2 minutes in the microwave.  In a separate pot, make a blonde roux with the butter and flour, add pepper; whisk in the warmed milk.  Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until mixture starts to thicken. 

Next add chicken broth and onions to the milk mixture, blend well.  Add cheeses and chopped steamed broccoli.  If you think the soup is too thick at this point, you can add extra chicken or vegetable broth.

    Hi Mrs. Pattie!

    Patti, I’m going to try this soup this weekend. Can’t wait to share with family and friends. I will also email you the Italian dressing recipe later this week. I just want to confirm with Liz all the ingredients.

    Hey, do you have a good red beans and rice recipe? I haven’t made this since leaving south New Iberia and thought I would try it over the weekend as well. Love reading and trying your recipes.

      Regina, on this recipe, if the soup is too thick for your taste, you can make it thinner with more broth. My husband loves this soup with a smoke ham sandwich. I’ll get the red beans and rice recipe to you this weekend. When you get a minute, you should try the Rice Cooker Jambalya recipe on this blog. It is so simple and delicious. I make it almost once a week with different ingredients i.e. shrimp, sausage, chicken, vegetables, etc.
      Thank you for the post!
