  • bacon beer & cheese soup recipe

    I am prepared. The winter won’t get me down. A little bacon, cheese and beer can warm anyone up. Just the smell lingering in the kitchen makes me think of game day. I made a little bacon and cheese soup in preparation for the much anticipated Chiefs game over the weekend. While we’ll be watching it in the comfort of our home on this beautiful Fall day, I can’t help but dream about making it all winter long. This soup alone is reason enough to have friends over.

    Just a few easy steps to happiness…

    Ingredients

    • 4 slices bacon
    • 4 Tbsp butter
    • 1 Tbsp onion flakes
    • 1/4 c flour
    • 1 c cream or half and half
    • 8 oz white cheddar
    • 8 oz gloucester cheese {I use one with chives in it}

    • 12 oz beer
    • 1/2 c vegetable stock
    • pepper

    Instructions

    1. Slice bacon thin and fry on medium. Remove bacon and set aside. Melt butter and allow it to brown {smells nutty}. Reduce heat to medium low. Add onion flakes, stir well. Stir in flour. Add cream, stir, then shred cheeses into pan, stirring continuously. Add beer {I used a wheat beer}, vegetable stock and allow to simmer until smooth and incorporated. Stir in bacon, leaving a little aside to garnish, and pepper to taste.
