Cheesy Beer Soup!
CHEESY BEER SOUP! || HOW TO MAKE BEER CHEDDAR SOUP
Well.. after a nice 20 degree day - it's now dipping back into the single digits. So of course we had to make some delicious soup to warm ourselves up. Our choice this time: Beer and Cheddar Soup and it was TO DIE FOR.
I can't even express how delicious it is. If anyone's been to Jack Astor's in Canada, they have the best Beer and Cheddar Soup - and this one tasted just like it! I was super happy to figure out a copycat recipe, let me tell you! The key to this was using Rickard's Red and 3 different kinds of cheese.
It is a bit tedious though - one thing I'd recommend would be to reduce and simmer the beer while you prepare the soup base.
So here's what you'll need to make a yummy cheddar ale soup.
1 onion - chopped
1/2 cup melted butter
2 garlic cloves - chopped
pinch of thyme
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
2 heaping tablespoons of flour
1 1/3 cup chicken stock
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups cream
1 can Rickard's Red
6 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded asiago cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.
