Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

This makes a “Duggar sized” batch of the soup. Mama would make this growing up and usually serve it with either saltine crackers or homemade whole wheat bread.

7 lbs. frozen broccoli

2 lbs. easy melt cheese (Velveeta or equivalent)

1 quart sweet whipping cream

enough water to cook broccoli

1 C. cornstarch with cold water to thicken after other ingredients are hot.

Cook broccoli first and drain water. Add velveeta and whipping cream and heat over medium low heat until melted (stirring frequently to prevent scorching!). Once heated, add cornstarch to thicken.

    Sweet whipping cream?

    • Derick & Jill

      Hey Melissa, I believe it’s the same, but might be called different where I’m at. What I’m referring to is labeled “heavy whipping cream” at our store and is a liquid (thicker than milk) and usually sold by the quart. Different than “whipped cream” or sweetened condensed milk.
      Anyone else feel free to answer!

        Sweet whipping cream and heavy cream are both types of dairy cream that have a high fat content. Both heavy cream and sweet whipping cream can be whipped and used in desserts. Heavy cream may also be used in recipes where cream is added, such as soups.
