Broccoli Cheese Soup

I had the most delicious tasting soup at a Christmas Party in December. It was a broccoli cheese soup. Yummy! I had asked the hostess of the party for the recipe, but hadn't tried to make it until yesterday. It is a quick and easy recipe, with excellent results. I wish I had a picture of what it looks like to show you. I seem to be having some problems with my computer lately. Whenever I try to do anything with photos, the computer freezes then shuts down. So for now no more pictures. :0(

Broccoli Cheese Soup
1 10 oz. package of frozen chopped broccoli
1/2 pound grated American cheese ( I used cheddar cheese)
1 Tablespoon butter or margerine
2/3 cup chopped onion
3 cups chicken broth ( I used 3 cups of water and 3 chicken bouillon cubes)
1/2 of an 8 oz. package of fine Egg noodles ( I used 1 package of Ramen noodles broken apart)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups of Half and Half or 3 cups of milk
Pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Optional: sprinkle with a little allspice or nutmeg

Heat butter and saute onions. Add chicken stock. Bring to a boil, gradually add salt and noodles. Cook covered for 3 minutes. Stir in broccoli and garlic powder. Cook for another 3 minutes. Add milk, cheese and pepper. Stir constantly until the cheese melts. Freezes beautifully.
This recipe can be cut in half for it makes a nice pot of soup.

There is nothing like altering a recipe to fit what is in your cupboard. :0)
Although every once in a while I find one that you have to follow exactly or else it becomes a disaster!

Spring is coming! My Daffodils are up, and I think I will see them in full bloom by this weekend! I always look forward to seeing my "Daffy's". They are such a nice bright spot of creamy yellow coloring, after the drab brown of winter grass!

I am still working on cleaning out my sewing room. It is taking me longer then I thought it would! Probably because I decieded to move some furniture around and found huge piles of dust bunnies! I will be very happy once I get this photo glitch, computer problem resolved. Then I hope to share a picture with you of my sewing room. I always enjoy seeing photos of other peoples sewing rooms!


  1. What a joy it will be to see the cheerful little nods of your daffy's as they smile to say hello. They are the most happy of spring flowers, always bring a song to the heart.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, I have to try it! I like Daffodils too, it is always nice to see them in the garden! I hope the problems with your computer will be over soon. Have a lovely week!
