BOY was it complicated. I am not a
I found one that did not involved ingredients that I didn't know about or cooking techniques that are out of my level...so I headed to the store!
First steps are to melt the butter and then mix in the onions!
Next, you add in the dry mustard and flour...
Stir for 2-3 minutes constantly...it kinda looks like wet corn bread (yum!) lol...
Add in the chicken broth and beer. I added a bottle of beer. I think I should have only used half of the bottle. But you live and you learn. I also used a light beer. I think I should have used one with more flavor. But again, you live and you learn.
After about 20 minutes of simmering and boiling the thickness just wasn't showing up. So I referred to Google! I read how to thicken a runny soup.
So I tried that...it made it a little better but not totally.
Howev---and I mean howev!
This soup tasted DELICIOUS! So good. I was really, really pleased with how zesty, cheesy and just plain yummy it was. I have a feeling after it sits for a bit it may thicken too!
I definitely think next time I will make it with a more hearty beer. But for today, dinner was delish!
If you try it or have a yummy recipe let me know! :)
That's...Just what Jess is up to! :)
