Talkin ABout Thursdays...

This recipe is for delicious broccoli cheddar soup....
and its relatively inexpensive...

did I mention YUMMY?

place 1 bag frozen broccoli florets in crock pot
add 1 cup milk (sometimes we use cream)
add 2 cups water.
add 1 can cream of ------soup-
this is where it gets tricky

I like cream of mushroom in mine
Morgan likes cream of chicken
we fight. :)

add 1 can of cheddar cheese soup

stir stir stir

after the broccoli has cooked - about 2 hours on high-
we add teensy weensy egg noodles.
they make the soup creamy, and filling.

we top ours off with cheddar cheese...
sometimes with more steamed broccoli...
sometimes mushrooms..

you can make it to your liking...
and comfort food is always welcome when the weather is somewhere in between rain and snow.

For those who do not like this, we also have a cheesy potato soup...

1 bag frozen hashbrown cubes...
2 cups milk
2 cups water
bring to a boil so potatoes get done
2 cans cheddar cheese soup
2 cans cream of chicken soup

let simmer for 15 minutes or so, until steamy and HOT

we add things like shredded carrots or tiny broccoli pieces for color.
Can be cooked in crock pot as well..:)

dont forget the crackers and hummus!


  1. A good broccoli soup is a *must* in our house. Thanks for sharing! You can also use evaporated milk in place of cream or milk - cheaper than cream,creamier than milk!
