As this is recipe is pretty good ,
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 med chopped onion
1/2pk mushrooms chopped fine, the other 1/2 chopped course
1/2 tsp celery seed
3/4lb. (12 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut up
2 bunches fresh broccoli florets blanched
. The celery seed does the trick !

No, there is no way this is 250 calories per cup as is the REAL Panera soup. Of course it's good, half and half, full fat cheddar. I say bogus

I made this recipe exactly as written the first time. I now do it cheaper with substitutes (regular shredded cheddar.) My family loves this recipe, I make it gluten free with 1/2 the amount corn starch instead of flour!
Didn't taste exactly like Panera's Bread, but it was delicious and very, very similar! My daughter loved it!

I loved this recipe! I thought it tasted amazing. When the soup was done it did not seem as creamy as the one at Panera but it could be because I used fat free half and half. I loved it!

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!

I was SO happy with the results of this recipe! I thought it tasted JUST like Panera Bread's recipe and I went exactly by the recipe! I LOVED it! THANKS!
This was a big dissappointment. Usually all of your clones taste just like the restaurant. This is a miss. I added about 2T real cheddar, and it was just watery and salty. I don't think I'll try it again.
Also floury in taste--I used Kraft Deluxe sharp cheddar and soup was thicker and delicious. Also steamed broccoli over chicken broth to not lose broccoli flavor in water
I made this recipe twice, the second time using real cheddar instead of processed, made both ways it's not quite like Panera but it's good.
