Cheese soup, will this work?

Do Y'all think this will work?

melt 1/2 stick butter in soup pot.
add 1/4 cp onion
1/2 cp cauliflower
saute.

add 2tbs flower, cook a bit

add 1can chix broth
2can whole milk
2 cps grated cheese. I have leftover cheese from superbowl party I need to use up, some yellow chedder, jack, and also velveeta so i'll probably just mix them.

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

Sounds good to me Eric! Do you want it smooth or chunky? If you have a stick blender you could use that. Your proportions sound right.

You may need more than two TB of flour for all that liquid. After everything else is cooked and ready, add the cheese off he heat and whisk it in for a smooth texture. If you add the cheese while still on the burner, it will curdle.

Mmm...your cauliflower cheese soup sounds good, Eric. I agree with Andy about adding the shredded cheese at the end of cooking, off the heat. Of course a little seasoning would be good too, in addition to salt I'd add some fresh cracked black pepper and maybe a dash or two of cayenne. Let us know how it turns out!

May I suggest a shot of hot sauce and a pinch of dry mustard (Coleman's yellow can).

Yup, I agree with Andy and Cheryl. I'd do equal parts butter and flour. How much is two cans of milk? Do you mean cups? If so, that would be four cups of liquid, or a quart.

I always sprinkle with a little salt when sauteeing anything; it helps bring out the moisture and seasons the ingredients on the inside; if you only add salt at the end, it will taste salty and not seasoned. Hope that makes sense Then, after you've melted in the cheese, taste and see if it needs more salt. And a little cayenne or hot sauce will definitely spark it up.

It's always a good idea as it helps with the texture of the soup. That's why there's always some wine and kirschwasser in cheese fondue.

Any cheese fondue I've ever had was made with beer. Maybe add some beer.
