Panera Copycat Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Copycat Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup Bowl

One of my all-time favorite soups at Panera is this Broccoli Cheddar Cheese soup. While I can't get to Panera as often as I would like, this recipe is just as good and so simple to make on your own!

Also, if you're following a ketogenic diet (like our family is), cut out the flour and substitute heavy cream for the half and half. This is seriously sooooo good!
