Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese Soup

-Alyssa Griffeth-

1 can chicken broth
1 small onion, diced
1/3 c. flour
¼ c. butter
Pepper to taste (I used about 1/2 teaspoon)
2 c. milk (I used 1% with great results)
1 ½ c. shredded cheddar cheese (sharp)
½ c. shredded swiss cheese
1 lg. head steamed chopped broccoli (chopped VERY small)

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 approximately 4 servings in bread bowls.
