Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli cheese soup is probably one of my all time favorite soups. This and potato soup is also right at the top of that list.

There's just something comforting about a hearty bowl of soup filled with a ton of veggies and thick broth. I do, sometimes, like soups with a thinner broth but most of the time I gravitate towards a thick and creamy broth. Especially in these terrible, terrible cold winter months.

Broccoli cheese soup is also probably the only soup that I order when I go to Panera Bread. Which has been more frequently now because I have met a few blogger friends that live somewhat close by and we have monthly meetups now to get together and “talk shop.” It's super fun and we get out our laptops and help each other with blogging things, sit in Panera and talk way too loud, eat their delicious food, and chat about what works, what doesn't, and what we want to try.

Anyway, this soup is perfect for just about anytime of the year and any time of the day. It's creamy without being too thick and with just the right amount of cheese added. Plus, there's bacon… everything's better with bacon. Amiright?

I added a few extra oyster crackers to mine with this batch and with the next batch, I think I might serve it up in a sourdough bread bowl – Panera style.
