chicken bouillon granules
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened

Very good - I was looking for a recipe that didn't use processed cheese. This recipe turns out creamy and has great flavor. I used chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon but other than that, I made it as written. I think I will add 1/2 tsp white pepper next time.
I had to add a few spices to this dish to make it more flavorful. I added garlic powder, salt and pepper, seasoning salt and even a bit of cinnamon to give it something special. This really added to the already good soup. The only complaint that I had was that it was a bit too creamy. In all fairness that's just my personal taste! Great recipe! Might try again with ham or bacon bits!
Very easy and delicious! I was looking for a recipe that called for real cheese. Was happy to find this one. I left out the flour completely and thickened it with cornstarch instead. Also, I added some pepper and garlic powder. My kids ate it up!
This is so good! I don't use processed cheese so this was perfect! I also added chopped carrots for extra nutrition and used a carton of broth instead of bouillon and water. My kids and husband loved it. This will be used again for sure!
Made this last night in the crock pot...it turned out great. Added the milk and cheese about 1/2 hour before I was going to eat it. My kids loved it...even my picky eater had 2 bowls full. I also blended it a bit at the end. My kids don't like onions, so if I can hide them I do. I will make this again and again!
Excellent!! I used chicken broth, added chopped chicken breast, baby carrots, onions, red pepper, celery, and garlic. Very tasty, warm, colorful, and filling. Thanks!!
This was easy and great. Use the quantities exactly as is in the recipe, or you won't get that "OMG, this must be 2,000 calories per serving!" reaction you would have in a restaurant. That being said, I added garlic, dried mustard (as was suggested by another reviewer), and used a different sharp cheese. I think that you could use any sharp cheese you have on hand. I pureed it, as I didn't want to waste time making dainty chopped bits of brocolli.
I just made this and it's fabulous! It's such a thick and luxurious soup. The only things I did differently were adding some seasoning (salt, pepper, nutmeg and ground mustard),hit it slightly with the immersion blender, and using reduced fat cheddar, cream cheese and milk. I may use a little less cream cheese next time to loosen the consistency some. I am so glad to have found "the" broccoli cheddar soup for me and my family! If you like a certain bread company's broccoli cheddar, this is the closest homemade version I have found.
