Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Soup

Yum
Update 11/13/12: I made this again, but used beer instead of chicken broth. It was every bit as good as it was the first time we made it.
Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Soup - a beer cheese soup that warms you to the bone! #beer #soup #cheese


This soup is perfect for all you Cheeseheads out there! :P I was happy to use the dinner as a topic of discussion for my 4 and 3 year olds who only really know who the Minnesota Vikings are. So they are clearly Vikings fans - I'm raising them right :) My husband grew up as a Packers fan...LAME. It was a really fun dinner conversation! We did all agree that it would be fantastic with potatoes or chicken in it too!

What you need:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, diced finely
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup beer or chicken broth
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup corn (I used a can of Libby's)
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled, or garlic croutons
  • Parsley, chopped or dried
Directions:

Melt butter over medium-low heat in a medium saucepan. Add onions and cook for around 5 minutes, stirring constantly. You want your onions soft, but not browned.

Add mustard powder and flour, stirring as you go, so there are no lumps. Cook for one minute.

Pour in 2 cups of milk, stirring as you go, again NO LUMPS!

Pour in 1 cup chicken broth and season with cayenne, Worcestershire, salt and pepper.

Add corn; stir. Let simmer for 5 minutes.

Add cheese and stir until melted. Simmer for another 5 minutes. 

Adjust seasonings accordingly and serve with bacon or croutons and parsley.

    Great -- being a Vikings fan myself, I think I could make this, even though WI is in the title ;-)
