    Creamy Stilton Soup Creamy Stilton Soup

    Here is a rich and satisfying cheese soup. Stilton cheese is the great English blue-veined cheese that ages to ivory-pale gold perfection.

    Prep: 10 min - Start To Finish: 20 min

    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    1 medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
    1 medium carrot, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 1/2 cups half-and-half
    1 1/2 cups crumbled Stilton cheese (6 ounces)
    Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

    1. Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, carrot and bay leaf in butter about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion and carrot are tender.

    2. Stir in flour and white pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in broth and half-and half. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute.

    3. Stir in cheese. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until cheese is melted. Remove bay leaf. Sprinkle parsley over soup.

    Makes 6 servings

    Tip: After stirring in the cheese, heat over low heat. Cheese in soups like this one can separate if allowed to boil.
