Beer Cheese Soup

Last weekend, I watched Sandwich King for the first time. There are several recipes of Jeff’s that we’ve been wanting to try. We had blogged another recipe of his a while back and after watching this particular episode we knew we had to make Beer Cheese Soup ASAP.

As the soup was cooking I wasn’t convinced that I would try it. After all, I don’t like beer or gruyere cheese. But alas I did…by dunking garlic crostini into it of course. It was so yummy and fall-esque. I actually went for 2 slices of garlic crostini!

This recipe is screaming fall. The cheese and half and half make it thick and creamy and the beer gives it a nice bite. The gruyere was not overpowering in the least. This soup’s perfect for eating while curled up in a blanket on the couch. I so wish that was what I was doing!

Here’s what you’ll need

Start by shredding all your cheese

To 3 tbsps of butter, add carrot, onion, celery, garlic and seasonings

Add the flour and continue cooking, stirring constantly for 1 minute

Add 2 teaspooons dijon mustard and the chicken stock

worcesteshire too, and soften the veggies

In goes the beer

Use an immersion blender to blend until smooth

Finally add the cheese. Stir until melted through and smooth

Oops..last ingredient…pour in the half and half

Dunk in garlic crostini. Oh Em Gee..amazing fall recipe!
