Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup

It’s time to share one of my favorite recipes with y’all! It’s a mashup between a loaded potato and a broccoli cheddar soup and it’s delicious. I make it on my stovetop and it’s ready in about 45 mins including prep time. My recipe is 4 servings which is perfect because you aren’t making a giant pot of potatoes if you just want to feed your family for dinner. I serve the soup up in homemade bread bowls too and it adds to the yumminess. My husband made a version of this years ago for me before we were married, and let’s just say this is one of the reasons we got hitched!

If you want to make this vegetarian, instead of cooking up the bacon in the pot, just add in about 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil to cook up the chopped onion. But I LOVE the bacon and it adds flavor so I cook this up with bacon! I don’t have a vegan version of this recipe, but if you try to make it vegan let me know how it goes and what substitutions you use.

Cook up bacon in Dutch oven or pot to your desired crispness and remove and set aside. Don’t drain the grease, you are cooking the onion up in it!
Add in chopped onion, stir and cook for about 3 mins.
Add in minced garlic and cook for 30 secs.
Add in flour and stir to thicken into a roux for about 1 min.
Add in water and diced bouillon cube and stir.
Add in salt and pepper and stir.
Add in warmed milk and potatoes and stir.
Don’t forget the Cajun seasoning!
Simmer for about 10 mins or until potatoes are fork tender.
Add in chopped broccoli and stir. Simmer for about 5-10 more mins.
Turn off heat and add in shredded cheese, I used Colby Jack cheese this time. Stir until melted and well mixed in.
Soup is thick and beautiful and ready to be devoured!
