I was asked recently by EatWisconsinCheese.com to come up with a few Super Bowl party recipes as part of their monthly “Entertaining with Wisconsin Cheese” feature. The first recipe that immediately came to mind was beer cheese soup.
If you’re from Wisconsin like I am I’m sure you’ve tasted or have at least heard of beer cheese soup, but much like the Beermosa it’s when I’ve talked to people from other parts of the country that I’ve realized that not everyone is familiar with this delicious concoction.
Based on the name alone I’m sure that you can probably pick out that the two main ingredients in beer cheese soup are beer and cheese. Aside from that though the rest of the recipe is pretty much open to interpretation. A lot of restaurants for example like to top the soup with pieces of popcorn. I on the other hand prefer using diced bits of bacon.
I think what I’m most impressed about by this beer cheese soup recipe (aside from how great it tasted) was how good the picture of it ended up looking. Just staring at it right now as I write this blog post is making my mouth water. It looks like something you’d see in an issue of Martha Stewart Living. Also yeah, that was me admitting that I read Martha Stewart Living. Make fun of me all you want, but you know what? I got a free subscription and there are actually some pretty awesome recipes in there!
Now that you’re done laughing at me for my choice of reading material you probably wanna know where to find my beer cheese soup recipe right? Just head over to EatWisconsinCheese.com where they have it posted along with my recipes for a pretty fantastic slow cooker Reuben dip as well as deep fried chocolate cheese fudge.
