Reviews for Cheesy Broccoli Soup
"Just finished it WOW very good soup. A++++only used 3/4 pound of cheese and added 1/4 more cup of milk, garlic, and 1/2 cup of cooked bacon drained and chopped up."
"Very easy and good. I made a few adjustments. I added an additional cup of milk, used less velvetta and added some cheddar. I also added just a touch of salt, pepper, and ground sage."
"I loved This soup I added some ham and it was thick which I was hoping for ! I will be making this again! I loved the cheesy taste!"
"My picky family loved this. The onion flavor seems to mellow out if the soup is kept warming on the stove. Might benefit from a little garlic, a little more broth to make it thinner, and maybe a few stray veggies."
"I enjoyed this but also agree that less cheese is better. Try to use the chopped broccoli - I only had spears on hand and it made for some rather large spoonfuls!"
