Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Greg loves Soup. He told me once that if he could master the art of baking/cooking one food, it would be soup. We haven't had any in a while... seeing as how its Summer and all... but one day this week was really rainy and dreary so I thought what the heck! It didn't hurt that we had just gone to the Farmers Market and purchased some 7 year aged Cheddar and some Smoked White Cheddar. So yummy!

Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup

1 can Chicken Broth
1 Onion, diced
1/3 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Cups Milk
2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/2 Cup Swiss Cheese, shredded
2-3 Large Bunches of Steamed Broccoli, or however much you like

Simmer chicken broth and onion in a covered sauce pan until onions are soft {about 20 minutes}. Heat milk in microwave for 2 minutes. In a separate pot, melt butter and add flour, salt and pepper to forma rue. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then add warmed milk. Stir and heat through on medium heat until soup starts o thicken. Add chicken broth and onion mixture and stir. Lastly, add cheeses and broccoli and heat through. Serve immediately.

** You can use Vegetable Broth and make this a vegetarian soup.
