Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Perfect Comfort Food

The cold weather will be upon us before we know it, make sure you have this easy recipe on hand! My recipe for broccoli cheddar soup can be made right on the stove top in about 15-20 minutes. I use to make it in the slow cooker because of course it was easy to throw all the ingredients right in and leave it.

 One afternoon in the middle of winter hubby came in covered in snow, ice in his beard- after 3 hours of snow removal and was starving. He needed something hearty that would warm him up quick.  There was no time for a slow cooker.

After a little chopping and mixing, he was enjoying a hot, creamy soup that was satisfying.
