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. Read More

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

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. Read More

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. Read More

Cozy good! This soup is insanely delicious. Reminds me a bit of the Panera Bread version. I've made this a few times and just get some crusty bread as a side or dipper. Read More

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! Read More

I made this one with a few items from two others on here. Did not use cornstarch, canola oil or sour cream, used 2 cream if celery, one cream of chicken, two bags of mixed cheddar cheeses, added a little milk, same spices. The result was super YUM. My brother doesnt like mushrooms.....you can really get creative, depending on what cheeses and thickening agents you prefer. Enjoy! Read More

One of the easiest and most delicious soups I ve ever made. I altered a few ingredients based on what I had in my pantry but not enough to change the recipe substantially. One of the things I like about this recipe is that it s easy to modify. I did add chicken which was great. Read More
