This recipe was given to me by Elouise Squires. Elouise has since passed away but the legacy of her soup lives on at our home. You can add more vegetables ; like carrots or celery to this soup for a bolder soup.
- 2 cups broccoli
- 4 tablespoons oleo or 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup onion
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup cheese
- 3 cups milk
- 3 slices bacon or 4 -5 slices Canadian bacon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Cook broccoli and chop and set aside. Cook bacon and crumble into pieces and set aside. If using Canadian Bacon cube into small pieces. Cube cheese and set aside.
- In a saucepan large enough to hold soup add oleo or butter melt and add flour and saute; do not brown. Add milk and cubed cheese and let cheese melt and then add broccoli; do not boil or will separate. Lastly add meat and salt and serve.
