Best tips for making Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup:

  • Chop broccoli in smaller chunks for a smoother consistency soup.

  • Use less broth for a thicker, creamier soup.

Living in the South I never know what to expect from our winters.

Usually it’s just a lot of threats and cancelling school before the first flake or icy drop descends from the skies.

Ever wondered why southerners fear of running out of bread and milk when it snows? Marty's Musings tells why and shows you cute puppy pictures, too!

(My youngest kids haven’t quite figured out the homeschooling angle. They go to school when the other kids are at home and then we take off when the other students are at school!)

Recently with the few inches that fell at our house, school was cancelled and all four of us ventured out to build a snow fort (a family tradition.)

This one was by far the biggest we’ve ever slaved to build and I helped! My husband supplies the five gallon buckets and we scoop the snow from all around the yard.  Great exercise, I tell ‘ya!

Usually I escape all the hauling of snow by taking pictures and then going back into the warmth to prepare our favorite chicken noodle soup.

This time I think we just had leftovers. Mama was pooped after all the frivolity and family time!

Before summer is upon us and my husband’s arbitrary soup eating rules are enforced, I wanted to share my slow cooker broccoli cheese soup that was a recent big hit!

Can we talk about the size of that soup trough bowl? That’s for all the moms with hungry teenage boys at home!

This recipe is so very, very easy and a great solution for busy snow days and every other day in between.

By using lower fat milk and cheese this recipe is also healthier and the fresh broccoli gets you a green veggie!

Do you eat soup year round or are you like my hubby who only likes it in the winter?

Notes

If you want larger chunks of broccoli don't chop it quite as fine. The more it cooks the less the chunky the soup.
Can substitute low fat milk or non dairy milk and margarine if desired.
I make homemade chicken broth but you can also use one chicken bouillon cube per one cup hot water.
If you like a creamier soup use less chicken broth and more cheese.
