Jamie's Cheese Soup - a definite keeper!

I love recipes like this one... Few steps with predictable results - it’s a keeper. It also makes enough to feed a substantial sized group. This would be easy to add other veggies to - and even leftover holiday ham. Jamie’s claims were true - it takes less than an hour and everyone loves it.

I stumbled upon this terrific recipe while browsing through my favorite food blogs. Jamie of has a fun site with very practical, down-to-earth recipes that my family would love. I found this one the day after Thanksgiving and tried it with turkey sandwiches. Yum!

I did add a few more bouillon cubes (because I don’t like to have to hunt for the S&P shakers). But I DO need some advice... how in the world do you peel those miserable little wrappers off so MANY bouillon cubes?! By the time I peeled twelve I was ready to pull my hair out! Suggestions anyone?

I also added about a cup of diced celery for a little more interest, texture, and color. This recipe is similar to a Broccoli Cheese soup we have enjoyed for years - but I liked the fact that you didn’t add the cooking water with the vegetables. That makes the texture much more predictable! Thanks Jamie...

  1. Thanks so much for the post and link. I appreciate it a lot. Glad you like the soup, it's a great one. As far as the bullion cubes are concerned....latelty I have been letting my little 3 year old twin boys unwrap them for me! Anything I can do to keep those little hands busy is a bonus! Have a great day, and thanks again!
