Is anyone else obsessed with Panera Bread? I know anytime we are in a city that contains one, hubby and I are there. We always order the same thing (because it is so stinking yummy)! We both get the 1/2 and 1/2 Frontaga Chicken sandwich and brocolli cheddar soup, with a bagette on the side. I AM CRAVING A BOWL OF THAT SOUP!! I am craving it so much I googled the recipe last night and am going to find my way to the store for the ingredents and make my knock off version. I am not going to be anywhere near a Panera for weeks and it is on the brain so I hope this satisfies. I thought I would share the recipe I found just incase anyone else might like to try it.
1 tbls. butter, melted 1/2 onion, finely chopped 1/4 cup flour 1/4 cup butter, melted 2 cups half & half 2 cups chicken stock 1/2 lb. fresh broccoli 1 cup carrots, finely chopped 1/4 tsp. nutmeg salt & pepper, to taste 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
