How to make Cheesy Vegetable Potato Soup:

In a medium frying pan, cook the bacon until crisp, then drain it on a paper towel and crumble it into pieces. Set the crumbles aside. Leave the bacon grease in the pan.

 

At the same time, in a medium sauce pan combine the chicken broth, julienne carrots, potato cubes, and onion powder. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.

 

Add the broccoli pieces, cover and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.

While the veggies simmer, over medium heat melt the butter in the pan with the bacon grease.

 

Whisk in the flour and cook for about one more minute or until golden brown.

 

Pour in the milk and whisk, cooking for an additional 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.

 

Add the shredded cheddar cheese and Velveeta cheese cubes. Stir until it is all melted and mixed together.

If you want a thinner consistency you can add more milk and additional salt and pepper to your taste.

 

Top with the bacon crumbles, additional shredded cheddar and croutons if desired. Serve warm.
