This is an easy weeknight dinner. I came up for it because I wanted a lighter version of the classic comfort soup.

I knew I didn't quite have what the recipe called for but I could be close. I sub'd 2 dashes of white pepper for the black pepper and 3 dashes of Montreal Chicken seasoning for the Montreal Steak one and since I had no cornstarch I added 1/2 cup of potato flakes at the end of the cooking time not ideal but workable. I omitted the Italian seasoning but that was an accident I just plain forgot to add it. I usually go light on seasonings just due to personal preference. I used frozen broccoli florets because that is what I had. I really liked the end result and I realized this is a very flexible recipe which I appreciate. Next time I will try it with cream of mushroom beef stock and mushrooms for a more earthy flavor. I think sautéing the veggies together added more depth to the flavors so I think the mushrooms on the variation will be really good. Thanks to the person who posted this.

This was not good. There was just to much pepper and the stake seasoning did not complement the cheese and broccoli well at all.

This was delicious! I didn't cook any of the vegetables ahead of time just threw it all into the crockpot. I also used Velveeta instead of shredded cheddar because I find that processed cheese makes for a smoother consistency. The key to this recipe though is the Montreal Steak seasoning which gives it a surprising and pleasing kick.

This was pretty good. I didn't add the steak sauce and it was still a little zippy for my taste. next time I will add a little less Montreal seasoning. I also didn't have cornstarch so I used tapioca which I use to thicken other soups and stews.

This is a simple and delicious soup! better than a lot of restaurants versions! I'm not a fan of Sharp cheddar so used Mild instead with a little Colby/Jack cheese. .warm, creamy and filling!

Turned out great. A little zesty for my liking so next time will omit the steak seasoning or at least 1/2 it.
