Default Bacon Cheddar Beer Soup in Bread Bowls (Winter Recipe)



Prep Time: 30 minutes or less | Cook Time: 30 minutes or less | Serves: 2

Lunch Soup American

Ingredients:



Today we're making bacon cheddar cheese beer soup in bread bowls! Also, I'm only making a half batch today since we're on diets, and this isn't very diet friendly. The ingredients below are for a full batch, however, with six servings.

Bacon Cheddar Beer Soup in Bread Bowls

1/4 lb. smoked bacon finely chopped
1 medium red onion cut into 1/4 in. pieces
1/2 cup finely sliced celery
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
3 TB all-purpose flour
3 cups whole milk
2 cups chicken stock
12 oz. grated white cheddar or sharp cheddar
3 dashes Tabasco
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup beer, room temperature
salt and pepper to taste
1 TB thinly sliced chives

Step 1:





My original idea was to make a bacon bread bowl for bacon cheese
soup, but I wanted to concentrate on the soup, so I went with the lovely multigrain bread dough they sell at Publix.

Either make your favorite bread dough or purchase some, and divide a 1lb loaf worth into two halves. I always let my Publix dough rise and warm up a bit before doing anything with it.

Step 3:



I'm going to make the bread bowls ahead of time, so I can concentrate on the soup. I sometimes have issues with cheese soups, so I have to be careful. Once the bread bowls are done, cook the bacon in a medium to large soup pot, with a little oil to get things going.

Once the bacon has cooked down a bit but not browned, add the onions, celery and carrots and cook until the onion is translucent and bacon is brown and crispy.

Add the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes until the floury taste is gone. (I like Wondra for things like this, since I rarely bake and I don't get lumps) Slowly add in the milk and stock, whisking well to make sure there are no lumps. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Here's the fun part: remove from heat, and stir in the cheese, Tabasco, Worcestershire, and beer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
