Creamy Soups – Broccoli Cheddar

Jaimie is always asked in our comments about doing more cooking and kitchen related videos. We are going to start off a new series that will involve Jaimie cooking on the homestead and the methods she uses.

She thought Broccoli Cheddar would be a great place to start. Primarily because it involves a base formula (recipe) that can easily be a starting point for so many other meals. When you first learn the base formula, you’ll be off and running to create so many other wonderful meals for your family.

The base formula she uses in this video can be the starting point for the following:

  1. Broccoli Cheddar
  2. Chowder Soups
  3. Creamy Chicken Noodle
  4. Creamy Chicken Cheaters Alfredo
  5. Mack & Cheese
  6. Cream of Potato
  7. Cream of Mushroom
  8. Creamy Gravy over Biscuits

So instead of trying to keep lists and lists of recipes every time you want to prepare a meal, memorize this simple base formula and then add in whatever you have on hand at the time.


  1. STOCK: Beef, Chicken, Turkey or whatever you have on hand.
  2. Cream Cheese (we use Neufchâtel)
  3. Onion
  4. Garlic
Start Video! Enjoy!

That’s it! It is the beginning of a great tasting meal. Now add whatever you would like. Noodles, meat, diced potatoes, mushrooms, etc.

This video is going to show how we use this formula to make broccoli cheddar soup. Once you get the hang of this, you won’t need a recipe ever again when making your favorite creamy soup.

Enjoy! Leave a comment below please and let us know you were here!

  1. Never had broccoli cheddar soup before until sister in law made some and had a taste of it. From there on out I’ve told myself that I’ll definitely make some for myself, just never found a good recipe to follow. Since we eat clean/healthy almost all the time, this would be a great blueprint for my future creamy soups to cook.
