1. Start with a can of Beer 2. Resist the urge to drink it! 3. Pour it into a frying pan and proceed. A Wholesome -- Taste Bursting Delight. This is quite similar to Welsh Rarebit, and is also great ladled over toasted bread points or maybe Salmon Patties. It should have a thick gravy consistency.

How To Make beer-e-cheese soup

  • 1
    Pour 2/3 can of Beer in fry pan. I use fry pan for greater heat area distribution. Low simmer for a few minutes. Mix 2 heaping tablespoons of Corn Starch to a slurry in the reserved 1/3 can of cold beer.
  • 2
    With Beer warming to a slow simmer stir in the Slurry and stir well. Increase heat while stirring. Note: Cornstarch has to come to a high simmer to thicken. It might not look too tempting at this point, but trust me. Do not allow to boil or it will curdle and separate.
  • 3
    When thickened reduce heat to low to very low. Add the 2 to 4 oz. each of the cubed Cheddar and Colby Cheeses, and stir to melt cheeses.
  • 4
    Add the sliced Green Olives and the crumbled Bacon, continue to stir. Simmer on very low for 15 minutes, stir occasionally.
  • 5
    Add 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce and 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce (Optional), stir. Taste, add dash of salt if desired. If it appears too thick add a little water or a bit more beer or milk. to thin.
  • 6
    Bowl it up and add a few Croutons if you wish. Cheers! Err... Enjoy.

    Caution: Do Not Microwave to re-heat, I repeat do Not Microwave to re-heat. It will curdle and cheese will become solid and stick to spoon. Instead warm slowly in sauce pan or fry pan. Add a little water or milk to attain desired consistency to it.

    P.S. In putting a recipe through these rigors, you find these things out. Re-Heat in Sauce Pan.
