Broccoli cheese soup

Soups are the perfect food for the winter months, and I feel the creamy soups are best!  This creamy broccoli cheese soup recipe uses a blend of both sharp cheddar and parmesan cheeses for a richer taste. It’s a delicious and easy to make recipe your family will ask for again and again.

I like to serve it with hard rolls and dip the rolls into the soup!

Be sure to chop your ingredients very finely.  The smaller the broccoli chunks the faster they cook.  Also be sure to dice the onion very fine so you don’t have big chunks of onion ruin the consistency of the soup.  Keep watch on it while it cooks.  The milk can easily scorch on the pan if not stirred frequently enough.
