Here is a rich and satisfying cheese soup. Stilton cheese is the great English blue-veined cheese that ages to ivory-pale gold perfection.

Ingredients

1/4
cup butter or margarine
1
medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
1
medium carrot, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
1
bay leaf
1/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/4
teaspoon white pepper
2
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1 1/2
cups half-and-half
1 1/2
cups crumbled Stilton cheese (6 oz)
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, carrot and bay leaf in butter about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion and carrot are tender.
  • 2 Stir in flour and white pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in broth and half-and half. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 3 Stir in cheese. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until cheese is melted. Remove bay leaf. Sprinkle parsley over soup.

Expert Tips

After stirring in the cheese, heat over low heat. Cheese in soups like this one can separate if allowed to boil.
