Slow Cooker 3 Cheese Broccoli Soup

3 cheese broccoli soup


Whenever I order soup at a restaurant, I go for the broccoli and cheese soup.  I thought I would put my slow cooker to the test and make my own broccoli cheese soup.  After a few tries to get this recipe just right, the third time was the charm.   Be sure to read my tips very carefully!  :)

Slow Cooker 3 Cheese Broccoli Soup:


2 Tablespoons butter or margarine

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk

1 carton (32 oz)chicken broth (4 cups)

2 cups of broccoli cut small (you can use fresh or frozen)

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 oz of prepared cheese product, cut into cubes (I used Velveeta)

1 1/2 cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

1  cup shredded parmesan cheese



In a skillet melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onion in butter until tender.

Pour in the chicken broth, onions, butter, milk, broccoli, pepper and salt into the slow cooker and mix well.

Cover; cook on low heat  for 4 hours.

Add cheese cubes to slow cooker; stir until melted. Add 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese and the Parmesan cheese; stir until melted. TURN OFF THE SLOW COOKER- don't even put it on warm. Just warning  you, the cheese will curdle. :)

Sprinkle individual servings with additional Cheddar cheese.

    How many servings is this? I’m planning to make it for my husband’s coworkers on Monday and need to know if I should double/triple the recipe.

    I’ve made your cheese/broccoli soup twice. First time was perfect…..2nd time it curdled! I followed your directions except I added all the cheese at once…could this be the problem? Why?!

    Hey, this recipe looks totally delicious! I just made it though and it tastes sweet. Could it be from the condensed milk or is it supposed to taste sweet?

    Hi, I tried this last night- followed the recipe to a T except for the onions- I’ve never had onions in a broccoli cheese soup. Unfortunately it turned out awful- it was not thick at all- tasted like watered down Velveeta. Maybe a thickening ingredient is missing like heavy cream? I have made many soups in my slow cooker and I’m a bit of a soup snob. Any suggestions?

    • Cyd says:

      This isn’t as thick as some of our other soups. But it was thick enough with all of the cheeses. You could cut back on the broth a little for a thicker soup.
