  • Any of the Shore Lunch soups mixes are awesome- our favorites

    Fire Roasted Vegatable
    Chicken Tortilla
    Cheddar Cheese ( we convert to beer cheese)
    Wild Rice

    Some that we love to make from scratch are
    white chicken chili
    chicken and dumplings
    hamburger and vegatable

    For the Bear Creek mixes, the Hot and Sour soup is good- can also be made into egg drop soup

    My man used to run a restaurant- some huge differences for quality and wow factor with any soup is the seasoning and preparation of the meat added as well as using bases if you need more flavor, not broths. Presauteed mushrooms( if used) , fresh vegatables along with the dehydrated ones - if using a package base , grilled seasoned meats and creative combinations make a big difference. :-)

    Have fun....

  • Baked Potato Soup

    4 large baking potatoes, baked, cooled, peeled, and chopped

    2/3 cup butter
    2/3 flour
    7 cups milk
    ½ cup onions, chopped
    1/2 pound bacon, diced and fried (drain grease) Fry with onions for better taste
    1 cup sour cream
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Melt butter, and flour. Gradually add the milk and heat until smooth. Add potatoes and bacon and onions. Cook at low heat for about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and heat through. Try not to let the soup boil after you add the sour cream and cheese.

  • Cheese Broccoli soup. I cheated and bought the packet that you just add water to and then added potatoes and diced bratwurst to it.

    I really want to try these : Slow Cooker Cheddar Ale, Brazilian Shrimp Soup, and Seafood Gumbo

  • Cheesey Chicken Corn Chowder

    2 whole small chicken breasts
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    2 10-3/4 ounce cans cream of chicken soup
    1 16-ounce can whole kernel corn
    1 cup milk
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

    Combine chicken, onion, celery, and 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer covered, 15 minutes.

    Remove chicken. When cool enough to handle, chop meat coarsely, return to broth.

    Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, stirring often till cheese melts.

    *Sometimes I add diced potatoes and a bit of extra water when I cook the chicken.*

    Even my finicky stepson will eat this and go back for seconds. Makes about 8 servings.

  • I made the most AWESOME chicken sausage gumbo the other day!! OMG, the whole family couldn't believe how good it tasted it was that good! I kid you not you will be slapping your mama it's that good!
    It's all in the roux and before you put the chicken in make sure that you cook the soup mixture down before you put the chicken in, and liquid smoke (1/4 tsp.) just makes it POP! Happy Cooking and let me know!
    Recipe is:
