A review of Broccoli-Cheese Soup from “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays” cookbook

No comments

I absolutely LOVE Halloween, you guys.  It’s the holiday I look forward to the most every year!  So, as we get closer and closer, I’m SUPER excited to try the many Halloween recipes in Ree Drummond’s “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays” cookbook!

Broccoli-Cheese Soup

I decided to start with this Broccoli-Cheese Soup because it looks really freaking delicious!

First I prepared the ingredients, which was really just chopping onion and broccoli.

Next, I melted a TON of butter in the pot…yeah, this is gonna be good!

Once the butter was melted, the onion was added and sauteed until soft before adding flour (to thicken the soup), milk, and half-and-half.

Salt, pepper, and nutmeg were then sprinkled in, followed by the broccoli.

The soup simmers for a while, and right before your ready to serve the cheese is added and melted into the soup.20180930_175516

To prepare the bread, simply cut off the top and scoop out the insides.

The soup is poured inside, and topped with more cheese before serving.

Mmmmmm….sooooo good!!!


Taste: 10/10

This was AMAZING soup; I loved all of it!  It’s very hearty, so don’t expect to eat through both the soup and bowl in one sitting.20180930_182008

Difficulty: Average

The soup isn’t difficult at all, but you will need to chop up broccoli & onion, as well as stir pretty consistently when you first heat up the milk and cream.

Cost: Average / Pricey

You’ll need to purchase onion, milk, half-and-half, broccoli, cheddar cheese, bread loaves, and possibly chicken broth.  Other ingredients include flour, butter, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
