The Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup at Canada’s Le Cellier restaurant in Epcot is like a meal, especially with a good piece of crusty bread. 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound smoked bacon (finely chopped)
  • 1 Medium red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup celery (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup carrot (finely chopped)
  • 3 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3 cup whole milk (scalded)
  • 2 cup chicken stock (scalded)
  • 12 ounce grated or shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 3 Dashes of hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup beer (dark ale preferred)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped chives for garnish

Preparation

Step 1:

  • Sauté the bacon in large, heavy-bottom, non-reactive soup pot over medium heat until wilted but not browned.

Step 2:

  • Add onion, celery, and carrots and cook until onions are translucent and bacon has crisped.

Step 3:

  • Sprinkle in flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and stock, a little at a time, blending well to ensure that there are no lumps. Bring the liquid to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.

Step 4:

  • Remove from heat and whisk in the cheese, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and beer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5:

  • Sprinkle with chives and serve.
