Homemade Soup Recipes: Cheddar Chowder and Broccoli o’Le Soup


Here’s a couple of homemade soup recipes that we enjoy:


  • 3 cups salted water
  • 3 chicken bullion cubes (or use veggie stock)
  • 4 peeled & cubed potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 medium size onion

Boil until tender.

  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 4 cups milk

Melt butter, add flour and cook until starts to brown, add milk slowly, stirring constantly, until thickens.

Add 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese to the thickened milk – then pour the cheese-milk into veggies and stir – GOOD soup! (We vary the cheese according to what’s on hand.)


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 quarts milk
  • 2 cups grated cheese – cheddar, colby, use your imagination
  • 2  10-ounce pkgs chopped frozen broccoli drained (or use fresh)
  • 2 tsp herb seasoning
  • 1 tsp dill weed
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T Jalepeno juice

Melt butter in 5 quart saucepan, stir in flour, let it start to brown, add milk, heat over medium heat, but don’t let it boil, stirring constantly, turn heat down to med-low when it starts to thicken. Stir in cheese until melted, add the rest of the ingredients, and let it simmer 1 hour on low heat,stirring occasionally.

I’m going to have to make a big pot of soup for dinner, this sounds GOOD!
