The recipe for this soup can be found in Disney cookbooks as well as here. My favorite time of year in Florida is the fall. I love the cooler weather. The fall also means that it is time for the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. My favorite thing to eat every year at the Festival is the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup! I am so glad that I tried this recipe. It was just like the soup in Epcot. I will be making this recipe again. It made quite a bit of soup so if I wasn't planning to feed a large crowd I would cut the recipe in half.

  • 1/2 pound of bacon that is cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 medium red onion cut into 1/4 inch pieces (I only used half an onion)
  • 3 celery ribs, cut into 1/4 pieces
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 3/4 pound of grated white cheddar cheese (I used orange cheddar cheese)
  • 1 tablespoon of Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of warm beer

  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, cook the bacon, stirring over medium heat about 5 minutes, or until it is lightly browned.
  2. Next add the red onion, celery, and butter. Saute until the onion has softened about 5 minutes.
  3. Then add the flour and cook. Stirring constantly for about 4 minutes over medium heat.
  4. Whisk in the chicken stock and bring to a boil for one minute. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the milk and continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Do not boil after you add the milk.
  6. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, until the cheese is melted and the soup is smooth.
  7. Next stir in the warm beer. If the soups is too thick, add some warm milk.
  8. Finally serve the soup hot.

  • anonymous : So recently I made this again and added about a cup and a half of pureed buttercup squash that I had roasted the evening before. I roasted it with thyme, salt, pepper, butter and olive oil. Took the quash and pureed it in my magic bullet. I dded it at the same time as my chicken stock. This was the BEST way that I have ever had the soup! THEN, I used the leftovers 2 ways. I reduced some down, added cheese and ground beef and made a queso. I also added more cheese and broccoli and used it as a topping baked potato. So I ended up eating this as a meal and then using it for 2 more meals. - Tammy
  • anonymous : I use the sharpest cheese I can find and a good Canadian beer. By good I mean Labatt's. The last time I used Labatt's Rye beer and it was YUMMY! - Tammy
