The easy-melting, individually-wrapped Kraft Cheddar Singles are a perfect secret ingredient for this Panera Bread broccoli cheddar soup recipe that's served at this top soup stop. In this clone, fresh broccoli is first steamed, then diced into little bits before you combine it with chicken broth, half-and-half, shredded carrot, and onion. Now you're just 30 minutes away from soup spoon go-time.

    • Instructions

      1. Steam the broccoli in a steamer basket in a covered saucepan over boiling water for 6 minutes. Remove the broccoli to a chopping board, cool, then use a large sharp knife to dice the broccoli into pieces that are about the size of peas.

      2. Pour the chicken broth into a large saucepan with the half-and-half. Whisk in the flour, and then add the remaining ingredients including the broccoli. Turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the carrots are tender and the soup is thick.

      Makes 4 servings.

This was one of my first recipes from "Top Secret" and found that it was very close to the original at Panera. I didn't get the flour taste that was mentioned in the other reviews. Be sure to use the processed cheese slices instead of the shredded cheese just as the recipe states. Very Good!
