Lick-the-Bowl Creamy Cheddar Apple Soup will have you thinking you’re dining in a gourmet restaurant. It’s really that good.
“The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” – Gilbert K. Chesterton
One of the most difficult things about doing a food blog is having to wait until all the pictures are taken before diving in. Today, I couldn’t wait. I decided to take the chance that there would be enough soup left to take various shots. It was worth the risk.
There’s a reason why they add cheddar cheese to apple pies, it’s because the combination is just divine.
Not only is this soup easy, but you can easily doctor it up to your personal tastes. Like a bit more kick? Add more cayenne pepper to the pot. Are you a big cheddar cheese lover? Adding another 1/2 of cup of cheese will do the trick.
Garnishing the top of the soup with shredded cheese and apple slices will make this dish irresistible to your family and friends.
