Super Cheesy (and Easy) Broccoli Cheese Soup

With cool weather on the horizon, comfort food tops my menu plan each week. I especially crave hearty warm soup as the temperature outside begins to plummet. One of my favorite soups is Super Cheesy (and Easy) Broccoli Cheese Soup. It’s not only delicious, but quick and easy to cook.

Super Cheesy (and Easy) Broccoli Cheese Soup

When it’s cold outside and life is busy, this soup is the perfect comfort food that won’t have keep Mom standing over the stove all afternoon. This season is so busy as we move into Thanksgiving and Christmas time. I love that I can spend my afternoons with my children- whether we are outside playing in the leaves or wrapping presents- rather than spending a huge amount of time getting our dinner ready with this delicious recipe.

My mom often served this soup for lunch after church when I was a child, and that’s still my favorite time to eat it. This soup freezes well, so I love to cook a big pot and freeze it by the quart for an easy after-church lunch. Add a loaf of warm bread and fresh butter for a restaurant quality meal! My freezer is stocked with 4 quarts already, and I hope to add 4 more in the next week!Super Cheesy (and Easy) Broccoli Cheese Soup
