Cheddar Cheese Soup

I’ve never been to Epcot. I really want to go, if for nothing else but the foods from the various places around the world. I might take in a few rides too, but I’m all about the food first. So since I haven’t been there I can’t really say for sure that this cheddar cheese soup is a copycat of the Canadian cheese soup you can get at the Le Cellier Steakhouse. I do know that this soup is crazy good, though. Heavenly good. Creamy. A bit smoky thanks to the bacon. A just a slight kick of heat.

Cheddar Cheese Soup

I used the best white cheddar I could find, and although you can go with a cheap brand, I think a quality cheese can really make this dish, while a lesser one can just make it ‘ok’. So splurge on a good cheese and you’ll be glad you did.

Also try my creamy pimento cheese soup.
