Another successful “Soup Sunday” in the books.  We tried this Broccoli Cheddar soup and as much as I am not a huge creamy soup fan, this was excellent!  My husband is a creamy soup fan so I have been making some different soups for him.  Check out the recipe below and let me know your thoughts!

Ingredients:
1/2 chopped Onion
1/4 cup melted Butter
1/4 cup Flour
2 cup Half and Half
2 cup Chicken Stock
2 large bunches Broccoli
2 Carrots
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
8 oz shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
Cut carrots into small strips.
Break apart broccoli florets into small pieces.
Saute Onion in 1 tbsp of melted butter until transparent.
Make a roux using remainder of melted butter and flour. Cook about 5 minutes over medium heat.
