best broccoli-cheese soup ever!

A long, long, long time ago, when I was hosting this giveaway, I asked what recipe YOU wanted me to showcase.  The votes have finally been tallied, and this broccoli cheese soup was the winner!

I heartily agree with your selection.  This soup is so easy, and it's really the best broccoli-cheese soup I've ever had!  It comes from Gooseberry Patch's Slow Cooking All Year Round - a fabulous cookbook that you should run out and buy if you haven't already.

So let me tell you about this recipe.  You saute some frozen broccoli for about 5 minutes.  Then, you dump it along with all of the other ingredients in a slow cooker and let it go for a few hours.  That's it.  Ten minutes prep, max.  As many of you know, I've been spending every waking moment the past several weeks working on my dissertation, so how thankful I was for such a fast, easy, and delicious recipe.

The end result is perfect with a piece of buttered bread or a nice baked potato.  Even miss Pebbles agreed - it's one of the few "adult foods" that she has eaten over and over again without reservations.

To make, melt margarine in a skillet over medium heat, then add frozen broccoli.  Cook and stir for 5-10 minutes.

Add broccoli mixture to your slow cooker along with cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, milk, and cheese.  Cook on low setting for 3 to 4 hours.
