Spinach Bisque Recipe

When my grandchildren were only 3 years old, they tried this "yummy" soup at a local restaurant and fell in love with it, so I immediately asked for the recipe. They still call it "Yummy Soup".
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 3 cups half-and-half cream
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, combine spinach and cream. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until heated through. Add remaining ingredients. Cook, uncovered, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted and soup is hot. Yield: 14 servings (3-1/2 quarts).
