Beer-cheese soup is a favorite in Wisconsin, a state that takes cheese very seriously. This recipe features the nice rich tang of Sargento® Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Croutons add a nice crunch to this creamy soup.

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup beer or water
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut
  • Garlic or herbed croutons (optional)
  1. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk, beer, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Heat to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in cheese until melted. Ladle soup into bowls. If desired, serve with croutons.
