Broccoli Cheese Soup
2 cups potatoes (about 2 potatoes)
2 cups broccoli
½ cup onion, chopped
Cover with enough water to just barely cover. Cook until tender. Drain ½ of the water before adding the white sauce.
¾ cup butter (1 ½ sticks)
½ cup flour
1 quart half and half
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in flour. Add milk slowly while stirring with a wire whisk.
After combining vegetables with the white sauce, add 1 jar of cheese whiz (You can substitute cheese whiz with 8 oz of Velveeta cheese). Add salt and pepper to taste.I didn't take pictures of the step-by-step process, but here's the finished product. On this particular night, we served it in a bread bowl. I love bread bowls! I found these whole wheat versions at Walmart and couldn't resist.
The only thing that would make this recipe that much better is if I could find a way to not use Velveeta cheese. It's not my favorite favor though you can't taste it in the soup. It just seems like a unhealthy cheese. So any other suggestions would be great.
