Years ago, this soup was a starter for me at a special restaurant that no longer exists. I have been trying to master that recipe and gee golly I think I've got it!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
onion, diced small
1 clove
garlic mashed
2 dash(es)
worcestershire sauce
12 oz
beer
14 oz
chicken broth
2 c
milk
2 c
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 Tbsp
cornstarch
1 sprig(s)
parsley

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot, saute the onions with the butter (don't brown). Then, add the garlic and worcestershire.
2
Add 12 oz of beer and bring it to a gentle boil. The liquor will evaporate, but the taste will stay; making it kid friendly.
3
Add 14 oz of the chicken broth of your choice, 2 cups of milk, and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. First, dilute the broth with a bit of water to form a paste and gently stir in the rest of the ingredients. When it starts to thicken, turn the heat down and while still stirring add 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese until it completely melts in. Be careful not to burn the bottom and constantly stir on a simmer. Garnish with a sprig of parsley and enjoy.
