Cheesy Cream of Broccoli Soup

We have our favorite cheddar broccoli soup that we always eat, but I thought it was time to branch out. I am going to try and do homemade Velveeta next time. As I said last Thursday, I am not the biggest fan of Velveeta. This was a pretty fantastic soup.
Cheesy Cream of Broccoli Soup - a thick, hearty #soup that's loaded with cheese and broccoli!

What you need:
  • 2 to 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 9 cups water
  • 5 to 6 Tbsp. bouillon
  • 1 cube butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 16 oz. Velveeta

Add broccoli, water, and bouillon to a large pot and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, melt butter and then add onion to saute for 5 minutes.
Add flour, stirring until smooth, and cook for 1 minute.
Slowly add half-and-half.

Salt and pepper to taste.
Add cheeses and heat until melted.
Add this mixture to the broccoli.
