My mother in law found this recipe on Tip Hero. She decided to give it a try. It is a thinner version of potato soup, but it’s good. My mother in law shares the love of recipes that I do. I was given one of the best gifts ever about a year or so ago. She gave me her collection. I love them. I have tons of cookbooks. There used to be this antique mall here in town….let’s just say I always bought so many books, they really knew me. I’d come in the door and it’d be Oh…we have new books or nope not this time. HAHA. That’s sad. I LOVE old cookbooks, unique cookbooks, anything different, anything fun. I could go in there and they’d have cookbooks for $1.00. How can you pass this up? Sadly, they haven’t really had anymore for $1.00…so I don’t go as much. I wonder if they miss me? HA….anyway give this recipe a try. It’s pretty good!

5 tablespoons butter, divided

1 small onion, chopped

4 medium carrots, diced small

4 cloves minced garlic

4 medium potatoes, small diced.

1 quart chicken broth

2 small heads of broccoli, diced

1/3 cup flour
3 1/2 cups whole milk

1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

4 cups cheddar cheese

3/4 teaspoon tabasco sauce

6 slices of precooked chopped bacon.

In a large pot melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add carrots and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add potatoes and chicken broth. After bringing to a boil, simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the broccoli. Simmer for 10 minutes until tender. While soup is simmering, add the remaining 1/4 cup butter to a sauce pan. Whisk in the flour and cook until brown. Whisk in milk and stir until thick. Add cheese and stir until melted. Season with salt, pepper, and tabasco sauce. Pour into the pot with the veggies. Stir until combined. Garnish with bacon.
