Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup is an easy recipe that the whole family will love.

Broccoli Cheese is one of my favorite soups of all time. But in all honesty, up until now, I have never made it at home!  I didn’t want to be disappointed. But when my good friend Monica gave me this recipe I gave it a go…….and I wasn’t disappointed, neither was the family!

 

I was asked to share some technology we use on our farm and while I could talk for hours on GPS, mapping, and auto-steer it occurred to me our corn dryer and control panel is probably one of my favorite forms of technology.  And reminds me a lot of a programmable crockpot.

Just like a programmable crockpot takes the stress off of supper time and standing over the stove cooking,  our dryer and monitor take a lot of stress off drying corn and works much the same way.

Field corn stores well at 15-16% moisture, a lot of times we harvest it a lot wetter than that, that’s where a corn dryer comes in.  We store a lot of our corn, we use it for feed for the livestock.  As a matter of fact, the number one use of field corn in Indiana is feed for livestock.

So storing it properly insures our product is safe for our livestock and for the food system down the pipeline!

But let’s talk about this soup!  I tweaked her recipe just a tad, don’t we all tweak recipes!  I love cauliflower in this soup so I added some and felt like after that I needed to thin it just a tad so added the milk.

Serve this soup with a turkey sandwich and lots of shredded cheese on top, sit back and enjoy!

Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup is an easy recipe that the whole family will love.

I put this recipe in a programmable crockpot – I was nervous and excited all at the same time!  Crockpots are great – stick the food in, turn it on and come back to cooked food!  But some things are more time-sensitive than others – like this soup – leaving it on, even low, longer than it needed to cook wasn’t going to work so the programmable one that shifts it to warm when cooking time is over is ideal!  Now you won’t want to leave it on Warm forever – even warm in a crockpot is warm so it is possible to burn the edges of this with so much milk, cream, and cheese – but that is the very ingredients that make this soup so good!
