Anyone have a really good cheese soup recipe?

I'm looking for a (really easy) cheese soup recipe. I don't want brocolli cheese soup, which seems to be the only recipes I can find. I want just straight, creamy cheese soup. A little spice would not be unwelcome.

When I was a kid, growing up in Missouri, my mom got this cheese soup in the refrigerator section. It came in a chub, kind of like you can get ground beef or sausage in. You cut off a chunk, added milk (I think - I wasn't doing the cooking back then!) and simmered. It was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!

I'm looking for something like that, for UDs. Thanks!

Hi there LCG,

It's not exactly a recipe, but...
Years ago, I used to buy the Velveeta Cheese (not the slices, but the brick), melt that, adding milk until it was the consistency I liked. I spiced it up with a teaspoon each of black pepper and curry powder, and a teensy pinch of cayenne pepper.

You know, now that I'm JUDDDing, I might have to work that into an UD myself!

My version: chop some onions and throw some spices that you like into melted cheddar (or whatever hunks of cheese I had on hand), add heavy cream and butter, a bit of cream cheese, and broth to thin it down to the right consistency. It's good with some minced jalapenos or a dash of hot sauce as well. Definitely not low cal but it's great comfort food in the cold weather!

I'm putting dough out to rise right now to fill with beer cheese soup tomorrow.
Caramelized onions, one yukon gold potato, chicken stock, beer, shredded raw cheddar, organic cornstarch, heavy cream, and glucomannan powder. Hot sauce to taste.

I'm a baker and always looking for yeast breads info to make.

And/or a dash of Worcestershire sauce if it needs to be "brightened" a bit.
(IYKWIM--when something is very rich & *should* be tasty, but it's just...somehow...not! )

I haven't made cheese soups but I like to make fondue, and sometimes I have wanted to drink a whole bowl of it, like soup! I start with a white wine base. Sometimes I add a dash of dry vermouth and/or a few drops of Angustora bitters, or the Worcestershire sauce and maybe a pinch of cloves.

I put pepper flakes in my soup, which really adds something to it. I can't stand dull, boring, tasteless soup.

That was a terrible dd thread Cindy!
I have soup simmering, took more hot sauce than I recall using in the past.
Homemade mini whole spelt brioche loaves are cooling.

I use no knead bread dough
Whisk together in bowl to mixer
4 cups whole spelt floor
3 cups organic white wheat flour
1.5 tbsp yeast or 2 packets
1 tbsp kosher salt or coarse sea salt
.5 cup vital wheat gluten

Melt 3 sticks of butter, set aside to cool
Stir in .75 cup raw local honey
1.5 cups warm water
Break up 8 eggs and stir in

In mixer on low add liquid combo to dry. It should seem slightly wetter than regular bread dough. Mix very thoroughly. Pour in 6 qt container with lid, nothing smaller. Loosely cover and let rise in warm place until it doubles in size at least and subsides a bit. The top gets a flattened look when this happens. Refrigerate overnight. To bake fill well greased pans, cover with plastic wrap, let rise in warm place at least two hours, should almost double. brush tops with water or egg wash. preheat oven to350 for more than ten minutes. Bake mini loaves 30-35,min, 8x4 loaves 40-45 min

Thanks for the receipe! I have never made no-knead bread

I see you use more fat ( butter that is ) and more eggs and honey then any of my receipes. Does this make about 3 - 4 loaves in the 8x4 pan?

that is my whole spelt no knead brioche recipe
brioche is enriched, so it is tons more butter, eggs and honey

I made 5 mini loaves (5x3ish) and one 4x8 with all of the dough. I usually do that ratio because my family likes the baby breads.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I think I now have to experiment and make several batches (on several UDs, of course!) and see what I like the best. Oh, the sacrifices I have to make...

Sorry Cindy! I know what you mean. I was away for the weekend and am just reading this, on a DD! Whimper...

Cambell's has a condensed cheddar cheese soup. I use it to help with homemade Mac and cheese when I need to make 3+ pounds. I'm thinking you could use the Cambell's as a base and add a lot of fun things.

Of course it's a DD here so I skipped over some of the previous suggestions, but it does sound good since it's chilly and stormy here.

Thanks, Carly.I tried Campbells's before (years ago...I've been on this quest for a long time) and thought it was really bland and boring, but your idea to spice it up is a good one. Adding another recipe to my UD experimenting schedule. This is going to be a delicious journey!

I like Dana Carpender's cheeseburger soup from one of her books (I'll find it if you want)-- no broccoli, but there is cauliflower to give it body, and of course, burger. Could be good without
Crazy high calories of course, but great in the weather we're having/this time of year. I think I made it in a slow cooker too

Kind of like the cheeseburger soup mentioned above...I make a taco soup that is pretty cheesy. It has ground turkey, taco spices, cream cheese, velveeta, queso blanco, rotel and onions.

The Velveeta, queso blanco, cream cheese and taco spices would probably work without the meat and veggies. Almost forgot...I also use onion and garlic bouillon from the ethnic aisle.

Oh, so many good ideas! I can't wait to get to the store so I can start trying them all!

Soren, I have that recipe! It sounds amazing as it, but I may try to alter it too.

Wiiiifit, that sounds really good!

Well, I haven't had time to make any of your great cheese soup ideas yet for an UD, but today I remember seeing a DD winter yummy from Ouizoid and I simplified it a little and came up with a wonderfully satisfying DD lunch for 45 calories.

Bowl of chicken broth made from powdered bouillon (all I had in the house) and stirred in 2T tostitos salsa con queso. Spicy and warm, and so filling! Now I have all these great ideas for a decadent UD cheese soup, and I also have this great DD alternative!
