Favorite Broccoli Cheese Soup

I love this recipe because I have made adaptations with the ingredients I have on hand, and it has always turned out yum-o.  The kids all love it, too.

Favorite Broccoli Cheese Soup
Recipe adapted from here

1 medium onion, chopped (can use dried onion)
4 Tbs. butter
6 Tbs. flour
4 cups milk
2-3 cups broccoli, steamed and chopped
1 can chicken broth (or 4 tsp. chicken bouillon + 1-1/2 cups water)
Pepper, to taste
1 Tbs. garlic salt
4 cups cheddar cheese, grated

In large pot, saute onion in butter until tender (if using dried, add with liquid ingredients).  Stir flour into butter until smooth.  Let cook until flour is lightly brown, stirring constantly.  Gradually add milk and chicken broth (or bouillon and water).  Cook and stir until thickened.  Add pepper, garlic salt, and cheese.  Heat through.  Stir in cooked broccoli and serve.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.
