    rich and creamy

    Diana Llora from HUNTERSVILLE, NC

    This soup is rich and creamy. I adjusted the amount of milk to 20oz and added a whole 12oz bottle of beer instead and I omitted the worceshire sauce. We had it for supper tonight with some fresh baked bread. It was great!

    Cheddar Cheese Soup

    Misty Kaiser from WHITEHOUSE, TX

    We had mixed reviews on this one in my house. I thought it was VERY overpowering w/beer flavor and exetremely thick. My husband thought it was great. I am going to try it again w/water instead of beer.

    Cheddar Cheese "Gravy"

    Linda Rice from WHARTON, NJ

    Put in a "Gravy Boat" & Serve over wide egg noodle, as a delicious side dish with any main course. Or over brocolli, as a veggie side. I even use it when making leftover casseroles.

    Perfect for a cold raining day!

    Helena Georgette Mann from LOOMIS, CA

    My husband and I really liked this soup. We had it with crumbled bacon on top, toasted sourdough bread and fresh vegetables. I add 1 cup n/a beer and 1/2 cup water. It would also make a good dipping sauce-fondue like or a cheese sauce as others have suggested. Thanks!

    Hot And Delicious

    Kathy McDonald from GREENVILLE, SC

    I made this soup for dinner the other night. It was cold and rainy and I was really pressed for time.I had been saving this recipe for an evening like that. It went together so quickly that I was amazed. It was really delicious. I threw a loaf of french bread in the oven to serve with it. It was a wonderful meal in a short amount of time. My family loved it! Especially with the bacon and green onions.I will definately make this again.Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas.

    INCREDIBLE Cheddar Cheese Coup

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    WOW! This was even better than I thought it would be. My husband thought it was hysterical that I had to buy beer for the recipe, but he really liked it too. I grilled a ham steak and served it with it for a great combination comfort meal. If you are looking to try something new and delicious, THIS IS the RECIPE FOR YOU!

    Cheese soup

    Kay Dunne from Dawsonville, GA

    This soup was very good. I only used half of the flour called for, because I watch my carbs. Also I used water instead of beer. It had good flavor. The second time I made it, I added cooked chopped brocolli, and it was great.

    cheddar cheese soup

    Mary VanDonselaar from HUBBARD, NE

    I liked this soup pretty well, although I would omit the beer next time or maybe cut down on the amount. I liked the consistancy very much. I added bacon bits and cracked black pepper. It was a snap to prepare.
