Broccoli Cheese Soup

1 can family size Cream of Chicken Soup
3 tablespoons grated onion
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3 cups milk
1 package fresh or frozen broccoli florets, steamed until very tender

You can do this from start to finish in just a few minutes, and it tastes TOTALLY homemade! Good enough for company! We serve in a bread bowl! (Comment from original author; I've never tried a bread bowl. Sounds good though...)

In a large pot, sauté onion in the butter. Over low heat: Add can of soup (undiluted) to pot and stir.

Add cheese and stir until thoroughly melted. Add milk and whisk until smooth. Add the broccoli and stir. Simmer until bubbly.

This is also even better using a package of mixed broccoli and cauliflower, steamed.

I did use both. Steam it in the microwave first so it's as soft as you like it.

After sautéing the onion, you can put all the ingredients into a Crock-Pot if you prefer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbly.
