Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup With Ham

Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup With Ham Recipe

I couldn’t decide whether to make Cream of Broccoli Soup or Beer Cheese Soup so I made Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup with Ham. Sort of a combination of both!

I had some beautiful Broccoli and I wanted to feature it in my Soup next to the Ham. So instead of making a puree out of my Broccoli, I decided to go with bite size Florets.

I started this Soup with a roux and then slowly added my other ingredients. It really is quite simple to make. There is nothing like a bowl or crock of hot Soup on a cold day and we have a lot of cold days during the Winter months here in Minnesota!
