- 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
- 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.
