Recipe Box, Autumn Apple Cheddar Soup

Aren’t apples one of the best symbols of Fall?

And when you think of the ultimate comfort food,

a bowl of hot soup and a sandwich has to come to mind…

The other night HHjr whipped up a pot of Apple Cheddar Soup

and served it with Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Yes, it was a cheese overload, but it was so good!

The soup is made with apples, potatoes, onions, chicken broth

cheddar cheese and unsweetened apple juice

Saute the apples, onions and potatoes until the apples are soft,

about 8 minutes

Add broth and apple juice

Simmer for 10-12 minutes

Use an immersion blender and puree the soup

Add 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and stir until it melts

Season with salt and pepper to taste

Garnish with reserved cheese and crispy bacon

    Jenna I missed your wonderful artwork and recipes. Apples are season perfect (even though we don’t really have a “season” in Florida). I will try this soup as I get stronger standing in the kitchen. Hugs

    Your soup is the perfect comfort food and seasonally just right. We had high winds today in northern NM and are expecting cold temperatures and some snow. It was nice to read about your warming dish, and it looks delicious!

    It is soup season. I made Slow Cooker Potato Soup over the weekend. I have added apple juice to this week’s shopping list, and plan on making this for the weekend. It seems perfect for Hallowe’en with the apples and all.
