Panera Bread Broccoli Cheese Soup

I like to enjoy Broccoli Cheese Soup as it is served at Panera, in a bread bowl.

I tried making bread bowls once upon a long ago time -- and now I just stop by the bakery and pick up a couple.

I strongly suggest you save yourself the trouble and do the same.

Hey, those guys are professionals.  Let them do what they do.

  • 1 tablespoon Butter, melted
  • 1/2 medium Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup melted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Half-and-Half
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock or Bouillon
  • 1/2 pound fresh Broccoli
  • 1 cup Carrots, julienned
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 8 ounces grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese


  1. Saute the onion in butter and set aside.
  2. Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Stirring constantly, slowly add in the half-and-half (you are making a roux).
  4. Add the chicken stock whisking all the time.
  5. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions.
  7. Cook over low heat until the veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Add salt and pepper.
  9. The soup should be thickened by now. Pour in batches into blender and puree.
  10. Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended.
  11. Stir in the nutmeg and serve.
