EASY BROCCOLI CHEDDAR SOUP

I love broccoli cheddar soup!

Every time we go to Panera Bread, I always get their broccoli cheddar soup.

It’s so good and I wanted to come up with a recipe that I could make broccoli cheddar soup at home.

So I looked around Pinterest and I just couldn’t find a broccoli cheddar soup recipe that was easy without a million ingredients.

So I came up with my own recipe.

Not only is this recipe EASY to make but it taste just like Panera Bread’s broccoli cheddar soup but better.

I now make this soup all the time for my husband and I.

And the best part, it only takes 2 hours to make in the slow cooker.

It also freezes well, so I can enjoy broccoli cheese soup whenever I want.

HOW TO MAKE BROCCOLI CHEDDAR SOUP IN THE SLOW COOKER

BEST SLOW COOKER:  I used my 6-quart slow cooker to make this broccoli cheddar soup. And don’t forget to use these slow cooker liners for easy cleanup.

SHREDDED CHEDDAR CHEESE: It’s very IMPORTANT that you use a block of cheddar cheese and grate it yourself. Packaged shredded cheese is coated in starch to prevent the cheese from sticking together which also makes it hard for the cheese to melt properly in the soup. Trust me, I’ve tried every brand of pre-packaged shredded cheese in hopes that it would melt properly and they always failed or left a “grainy” texture to the soup.

FREEZE IT: We always have leftovers because it’s just my husband and I right now, so I just place the leftovers in a freezer bag and it stays good in the freezer up to 3 months.

TOPPINGS: I love to serve this broccoli cheddar soup with croutons and extra shredded cheese.
