When it is cold outside, there is nothing better than a nice warm bowl of soup. The best thing is when it is easy to make too. That is why I love making soups in the crock pot, they really could not get any easier.
One of my favorite soups is Broccoli and Cheddar Soup. Every time I go to Panera, I order that soup in a bread bowl. I do not think that I have gone there in the last few years and not ordered that. Because it is one of my favorite soups, I decided to try to make Broccoli and Cheddar Soup at home. However, I decided to add bacon to the soup as well, because, well, bacon makes everything better!
This Crock Pot Broccoli Bacon Cheddar Soup is really good. I love that it can just sit in the crock pot all day and cook, while I can spend time with my family or while I am at work. I liked the addition the bacon brings to the soup, while it gets blended in, I could still taste the bacon flavor, but it did not overwhelm the flavor of the soup. The soup can be blended in a blender, by an immersion blender, or you can just eat it with bigger broccoli chunks. I blended mine in a blender, while I think an immersion blender would work better, I did not have one to use. I hope that you try this delicious soup.
