Tips How To Make The Panera Bread Broccoli Cheddar Soup Copycat:

  • I like to use heavy cream in this recipe, you can also use half-and-half or light cream.
  • I used vegetable broth, you can also use chicken broth.
  • When melting the butter, be careful not burn it.
  • When adding the flour, stir constantly to combine it.
  • To make the soup even more creamier, you have to puree half of it, either by adding it to a blender or using an immersion blender.
  • Add as much cheddar cheese as you like, this is the best part of this homemade version.
  • Toppings suggestions: bacon crumbs, cheddar cheese, chopped green onion, diced chives, dollop of sour cream.
