shredded Cheddar cheese
After getting 3 cavities filled, this made a comforting dinner that was easy to prepare. Only word of advice is turn the heat down when you add the onions to the butter or they will burn! This is versatile, as I was eating it I was thinking of all the things I could add to it: cubed ham, potatoes, unseasoned croutons, crumbled bacon, etc.
This soup didn't have enough of a cheesy taste for me. I had only bought enough cheese for the recipe, so I had to add a can of campbells nacho cheese soup to the pot. This wasnt the flavor that I was hoping for, but it was okay.
This is a great soup. I used low sodium broth (boxed)and left the soup unblended. It was great with the pieces of onion in it. I know it's not Fall yet, but it sounded so good I tried it in August. My family really liked it.
Thank you Maureen ! This recipe for cheese soup is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. I had this soup back in the 80s at a very nice restraunt in the Old Port (Portland ME) here. They have since closed and how I have MISSED having this. We top it with bacon pieces.
I've made this a few times, and I could never get it really creamy until I used velveeta. It's a wonderful soup, and I will make it for years to come, thanks.
This is a winner! Use New York State Sharp Cheddar, which is worth the extra few pennies. I also used low-sodium broth, since the cheese tends to be a bit salty. You can always add more salt if you prefer, but it's better to start low and work up! Thanks for a terrific soup that is worthy of company!
I have 3 1/2 lb blocks of frozen cheese that just crumble into 100000 little bits when thawed, and this was a perfect way to use some of that cheese. I liked the texture and the soup kept well in the refrigerator. I also mixed in some leftover nacho beef and made nacho soup!
Quick, easy and delicious. Plenty of room for experimentation too - broccoli, cauliflower, blue cheese etc etc. Nice recipe, Maureen. Thanks!
