Great way to use leftover broccoli. My tweaks: I used a whole (medium sized) yellow onion & a clove of garlic (though I could have used one more). Since my broccoli was already cooked, I added a chicken bouillon cube in the broth. I also used on cup of heavy cream & 3 cups of milk. I used butter instead of marg. Instead of slices of american cheese, I used 1 1/2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar. Thanks for the inspiration!

Made this last night, it was GREAT!!!! I have to say I wasn't very convinced when I thought about cheese slices, even my husband questioned this one but really it does work and the whole family loved it. My husband and I are cooking fanatic's so we are pretty critical regarding recipes and to our surprise it was amazing. Highly recommend making this recipe. Just a side note: I had broccoli already cut up and I used 3 1/2 cups.

Simple and delicious. I used butter, 1% milk, broth and added just a touch more cheese. :)

Very good & easy to make. This would be great served in a bread bowl. The onion was a little strong for me, so I will use less next time.

Super thick, super creamy, super cheesey, super yummy! I used butter instead of margarine. I also pureed a little less than half of the soup so I had smooth mixed with chunks of broccoli. I will make this again. Thanx for the fantastic soup recipe.

Just the recipe I have been looking for. So easy to make and very very good on a cold November day. I had tried some at Applebee's for lunch with a sandwich, just a few days ago and was hungry for it again. This has a better flavor and really hit the spot.
