One of the most loved food offering in the Disney Parks is Le Cellier's Cheddar Cheese Soup. Some make reservations months in advance just for this soup. And others wait till food and wine comes around just to stand in line for a hour just for a shot of this magic brew. But I say no more! just make it at home. It's pretty easy and fun to make.Below is a list of what you'll need and how its done if you try it send me a pic and I'll make a follow up post showing it off for you. I will also be doing a video on making the soup in the near future.
The only two places you could get the soup until now.
3 cups whole milk, warmed
10 tbsp butter
1/2 pound smoked bacon – finely chopped
1/2 cup celery – finely chopped
1/2 cup carrot – finely chopped
1 medium-size red onion – finely chopped
2 cups chicken stock, warmed
1 tsp of Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup Dark Ale (or for a stout Guinness is best)
12 oz. shredded white cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
chopped chives as garnish
Optional: add butter (8-10 tbsp)
1.) Saute’ bacon until soft. Not brown and crisp
2.) Add the celery, carrots, and onions and bacon into a large pot.
3.) Add in flour and stir for 2-3 minutes. Then slowly pour in your milk and chicken stock.
4.) Get to a boil, cover the pot and let it simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
5.) Take the cover off, remove from heat, and carefully whisk in your Worcestershire sauce, dark ale beer, Tabasco Sauce, and cheese. Also salt and pepper and butter to your taste.
6.) Once the cheese is melted, simply serve. Spread some chopped chives on top and serve with your favorite choice of bread.
