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…

fry bacon, remove bacon and brown the butter, add flour, followed by cream/half & half, shred cheeses, add beer, add stock and pepper to taste
