Broccoli Cheese Soup

I have been craving broccoli cheese soup. I thought this recipe was delish! My hubby doesn't even like broccoli, and he really liked it. In fact, he ate the leftovers the next day, and left me with none! I got this recipe from My Kitchen Cafe.

Broccoli Cheese Soup
1 can chicken broth
1 small onion, diced

1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. pepper

2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
steamed chopped broccoli (I steamed about 3 cups of raw broccoli florets.)

Simmer chicken broth and chopped onion for 15-20 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft. Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes. In a separate medium-sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour and pepper. Cook together for a couple of minutes, then whisk in warmed milk. Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until soup starts to thicken. Next add chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended. Add cheeses and steamed broccoli. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings. It is so delicious served in Italian bread bowls.
