Broccoli Cheese Soup and Hot Cheese Sandwiches

When I was working at Primary Children's Hopsital we loved their broccoli soup and finally asked for the recipe.

2⅓ c chicken stock
1 Tbs dehydrated onion or ¼ c diced onion
1 bay leaf
6 Tbs flour
3 Tbs butter melted
¾ c milk
¼ c grated cheese
4 oz cooked broccoli

Add onion and bay leaf to stock and bring to a boil. Mix butter and flour. Add to chicken stock and stir until thickened. Add milk slowly. Cook until thickened. Add cheese. Chop half and puree half of broccoli and add. Remove bay leaf.

Hot Cheese Sandwiches

2 c mozzarella(6oz) grated
2 c sharp cheddar
½ c parmesan cheese
½ c minced onion
1 c mayonnaise
parsley

Mix and spread on thin sliced French bread, broil briefly

These look so delicious--I'll be making them soon. When you say minced onion, you mean fresh onion, not the dried minced stuff, right?

This was delicious. I made it that day and ate the whole pan myself. In several sittings, of course. :)
