READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by AB_Fan

In Wisconsin, America's Dairyland, nearly everything tastes better with cheese. This creamy, rich broccoli soup is perfect fare for a winter weekend. Serve with warm, crusty bread or crispy croutons. Yum!

This was a delicious and easy soup to make...I would recommend it to everyone!! I cut the recipe in half for DH and I, followed the directions to a tee and served it with some garlic bread. Next time I might add some cayenne pepper for a little zip and try some wine like a previous cook posted (but you really don't need it). Took it down to the coast and totally enjoyed our lunch. Thank you. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag game 2009.
