Well winter is just around the corner and the cold weather is coming. Nothing like a hearty bowl of soup to warm you up. How about a creamy cheese and BEER soup? My kids could eat this one every night and come back for more.
I used one of the new Paddock Wood Spitfire English Ales in the last batch of beer and cheese soup, wonderful flavour, not too overbearing, just the right amount of ‘hoppy’ essence left after cooking. YUMMY with some big slices of bread and of course a large glass of ale.
Here is my favourite recipe for Beer and Cheese Soup
(don’t be afraid to add to this soup… bacon, broccoli….)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup flour
4 cups milk or chicken broth
1 bottle of your favorite beer
Dash of onion salt
2 tsp dry chicken base
Dash of tabasco
Dash of worchestershire sauce
1lb cheddar cheese (shredded)
1/2 cup chives, chopped
Melt butter, add flour and stir well to make sauce texture.
Then add milk or chicken broth, plus all other ingredients, EXCEPT beer and cheese. Stir well.
Add cheese in small amounts and stir until melted, add beer, stir and simmer for 10 minutes.
Hopefully with will be a hit with your family.
That’s all for this time,
Take time to treat yourself …you deserve it.
