Cheese Soup
 
Author:
Recipe type: Soups and Stews
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 to 4
Ingredients
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 Cups chicken broth
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 Cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • salt; if needed
Instructions
  1. Place a 3-quart non-reactive pot over medium-high heat. A 2-quart will do, but the larger pot gives you lots of room to stir. Add the butter and stir until it has melted. Add the onion and stir slowly but constantly until it softens, just for a minute or two. Spear a piece or two and taste if you're in doubt. You don't want to brown the onion, just tenderize it a little.
  2. Stir in the flour and blend it thoroughly with the butter and onion. Cook, stirring constantly, about 2 or 3 minutes. Slowly add the broth and milk, still stirring constantly, and continue to cook until it is almost to the boiling point. Tiny bubbles will begin to form a ring around the edge of the pot.
  3. At this point, stir the grated cheese into the milk and whisk it until it has melted and the soup is very hot. Salt the soup to taste (if needed), then serve.
Notes
Serve with crackers, or crusty bread.

Feel free to adapt this recipe by adding such things as 1/2 Cup beer, English mustard, paprika, or even apple. This is a wonderful base for your own creativity.
