Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup.

My husband teases me because whenever we go to a restaurant, I always order the same things. But hey, I like what I like. One of my standbys is Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup. I love it. So, in anticipation needing comfort foods in the very near future - you know, what with the new baby coming and maybe possibly a little bit of cool weather, I made a big tasty batch of Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup.

  • 12 ounces (about 6 cups) broccoli florets
  • 1 cup finely chopped carrots

  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 6 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 32 ounces (4 cups) half & half
Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup Directions:
  1. Saute onion and garlic in butter until onion is translucent.
  2. Add chicken stock and nutmeg and bring to a low boil.
  3. Add broccoli and carrots and cook until tender.
  4. Add cheese and stir until fully melted.
  5. Pour in half & half and continue to stir on medium/low heat until all ingredients are incorporated and soup is heated through, being careful not to boil.
  6. Serve and enjoy!


  1. This looks SOGOOD! I will have to try!!!!

  2. I didn't use the whole amount of cheese and I didn't even need the milk. The soup was so creamy and rich all on it's own! I did add a little Frank's hot sauce.

  3. Cheese didn't melt, thin, bummer. Can't figure out what I did wrong.

    1. oh, no :-( i'm sorry it didn't work for you!

  4. Hi April! Just wondering how many this serves?! THANKS!! :o)

    1. hi erin - it makes about 18+ cups (depending on how much cooks off), so depends on how big your servings are. as a 1 cup snack, then about 18, as a 4 cup bowl of soup, 5ish.

  5. Does it freeze? Thanks!

    1. Yes! It may separate a little, but reheat on low stirring frequently and you should be good :-)

  6. When do we put in the seasoned salt?


I eat up comments!!! Nom nom nom.
