This is really yummy and cheesy soup. Every time I've made it, people beg for the recipe! I use the (non-metallic) pot of my slow cooker to cook this soup in the microwave, but you can cook it more slowly in the slow cooker itself if you prefer. This is especially great with bread bowls.

This recipe is much too large to be prepared in a standard size microwave oven. I made the full batch in my slow cooker and it was filled to the brim. It was OK though the taste of processed cheese was heavier than I tend to prefer. Read More

I used 3 bunches of fresh broccoli and I added bacon. I thought it was pretty good although not good enough to eat again the next day. The recipe made more than I thought it would. I might make this again but I will probably try a different recipe first. Read More
