Growing up we didn't eat many soups. We were more meat and potato kind of people. However, my Mom did make a mean and super simple and easy and cheap Broccoli Cheese Soup. She would just whip it up quickly before dinner, but I enjoy it straight from the crock pot. The broccoli tastes better and it's something easy to just throw together in the crock pot and go about your day.
2 cans or 1 family size can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Cream of Celery Soup
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Cream of Potato Soup
2 cups of shredded Cheddar Cheese
Milk (use as desired)
2 cups of chopped broccoli (fresh or frozen)
Seriously, this is so simple. Add all of the soups together and mix in the crock pot. I'm assuming you are using a crock pot... Basically it's made the exact same in a pot. Add cheese and broccoli and stir well. The milk is used to thin out the soup if you feel as though it's too thick. Milk can be added at the beginning or after a few hours of cooking when the consistency has changed.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours stirring periodically.
Done and Done!
We usually enjoy Sweet Hawaiian rolls or just plain old saltine crackers with our soup. And of course it's always delicious in a bread bowl, I just never make it to the store early enough to buy the good fresh ones.
And the BEST thing about this soup is that Aniston absolutely LOVES it!!!! Win-win-win!
