A deli-style favorite, this creamy cheddar cheese soup has bits of healthy broccoli added.

This week  for Sunday Supper the theme is all about hot lunches for Back to School.

I decided to post my recipe for Broccoli and Cheese soup- which has been a favorite of mine since I worked as a teenager at the Whole Loaf deli in downtown St. Louis many many years ago  (1970’s). It was always popular with the customers who got it with their deli sandwiches.

I do think mine is just as good as theirs (probably better).

The tip in making this is to make sure when you stir the cheese in, the soup is off the heat,  otherwise the heat makes the cheese break down into something horrible and stringy. And as you can see, the soup is very smooth and velvety, everything you could want for in this type of soup.

Broccoli and Cheese SoupTomorrow starts up a week of Farmer’s Marker recipes which I am posting with a recipe blogging group. I always have tons of these kinds of recipes laying around,  especially since I do enjoy visiting the markets. My first recipe will be for Strawberry Mango jam. I love making jam- and have been doing it since the 1980’s when I bought myself a canning pot. That first summer I made so many things I was giving jar after jar of preserves and whatnot away like a canning and gifting fool. Not that I mind- I  really enjoy giving food gifts, and when guests come, I cook everything in sight.

You’d think I  want to feed the world. You might be right!

  1. I absolutely love the simplicity of this soup. My family loves Broccoli and Cheese soup, so it would make not just a great lunch for my kiddos, but a nice quick dinner for busy nights too. Yum!
