I love broccoli so I will make this for sure!!!

use American cheese instead of cheddar cheese, if you'd like...it has better flavor, but if you are really counting your carbs stricly like me, use a mixture of the cheddar cheese and american!!!!

Sounds absolutely wonderful; this is one of my favourite soups - but this would truly crucify my diet.

looks good - I would probably use fresh broccoli instead of frozen.
what would you consider a serving to be for this recipe? How many people will this serve?
You could cut down on the fat in this recipe by using fat free chedar and just regular homogenized milk. The milk still has fat, but nothing like the cream would have. It would still taste rich, yet the fat would almost be cut to nothing. I'm gonna try it :-)

You could also use fat free evaporated milk. Make sure the chicken broth is 99% fat free too. I would also add some onion and garlic or other seasoning.

Made this last night loved it. I used Kraft block cheddar and had trouble getting it to melt so had a few "chunks" of cheese. Is there a better cheese that will melt smooth?

This can't be anything but yummy. I do like using American cheese because of how it melts smoothly. If you use more cream and bring the cream to a light boil and then stir in the cheddar until it melts, that works really well too.

This rocks! I used kraft melts american and cheddar cheese along with a little normal mild cheddar. Husband doesn't know why i chopped broccoli so small but oh well. I have a food chopper and it really helps. Oh I also chopped up a chicken breast and put it in there.
