February first (1st) is Supper bowl day, and according to a poll we found on line from 2010, 7 in 10 American adults, about 68 percent, watch the Super Bowl. Others polls state that most men watch the Supper Bowl for the commercials, which are later talked about on the social net-works they subscribe too.
Most men also love their cheese as well. Why look at all of the food items containing cheese that they sink their taste buds into: Chili and Cheese, Ham and Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Philly Cheese Sandwich, Pizza with Extra Cheese, Chili Fries with Cheese, and the list goes on.
Because the Supper Bowl always is played on a Sunday, most homes will have a brunch prepared. Here at Splendid Recipes and More we have an item to add to the brunch list, and it contains cheese and a man’s favorite beverage, will most men, BEER!! Yes – Beer Cheese Soup.
Here is what you will need ( soup recipe adapted from Soup Recipes for Men):
Beer Cheese Soup
1/3 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Flour
1 ½ Cups Carrots, finely diced
1 ½ Cups Onion, finely diced
1 ½ Cups Celery, finely diced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Fresh Cracked Pepper
2 Cups Beer
3 Cups Chicken Broth
4 Cups Whole Milk
6 Cups Sharp Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
Crumbled Bacon (garnish)
Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add flour and whisk constantly for 4 – 5 minutes to create a light roux, about the color of a dull penny. Next, add carrots, onion, and celery; sauté until tender, about 7 – 9 minutes. Add garlic, a few dashes of Tabasco, and season with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Slowly add the beer and chicken broth, stir and bring mixture to a slow boil. Add milk, and return to a slow simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to low; fold in the cheese, mustard, and Worcestershire. Stir until all of the cheese is completely melted – soup should be rich and creamy. Ladle into a bowl and serve.
