Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is the best beer cheese soup recipe. Always a hit! I prefer it without the broccoli, but sometimes a little fresh chopped green onion is a nice added touch. I choose to use Land o' Lakes sharp American for an extra bite. It has the creamiest texture and I've never had the curdling effect the other rater mentioned. I've made this soup countless times.
The beer curdled the milk and gave the melted cheese a grainy texture.
I'm allergic to beer so I changed the beer for Winter White wine and it was great. Also have used chicken broth to replace the beer both are excellent, even our 3 year old grand-daughter who is a very picky eater loves it.
