  1. My family has been using this same recipe for 60 same year, we have it ever Christmas day.we get the recipe from a old cook book.
  2. I've been using this recipe for the last 5 years and everyone always love it. I live in Akron, Ohio and it is just like The Barn's recipe in Orville, Ohio. If I want it a little thicker I add a little cream cheese instead of flour. Usually no more then a half a block.
  3. Thanks for the recipe. I made this the other night for dinner and the family really enjoyed it. I found it slightly thin though, and added some flour. I also used fresh garlic. Had it reheated, great. Will make again. :)
  4. Fabulous!!! There was a place in Ohio called "The Barn" that my grandmother used to take me to. I want to say that it was over by Wooster? This has got to be the same recipe they use. Everyone in the family ate it up and my 2 yr old asked for broc. cheese for days:) Thanks so much for sharing. I'll be making this forever with fond memories.
  5. This easy soup tasted great. We had leftovers for a couple days and it tasted good to the ene. Thanks Ben's Mom. Bullwinkle.


  1. Made for PAC fall '06. My husband couldn't stop raving about this soup. Very easy to put together. I don't care for frozen broccoli, so used chopped fresh and I also used fresh garlic instead of the salt. Because it's only the 2 of us, I also halved the recipe. Very nice. :)
  2. Very good and easy to make. Wonderful for leftovers to take to work for lunch. The only thing that I did different is use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I will make again, thank you.
