Disney’s Le Cellier Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup

3 Cups milk
1 Cup chicken broth
6 Slices bacon, diced
1/4 Cup finely diced red onion
1/4 Cup finely diced celery
1/4 Cup chopped scallion
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Cups shredded Canadian white cheddar cheese
1/2 Teaspoon Tabasco sauce, or to taste
1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
Snipped fresh chives or minced scallions for garnish

  1. In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the milk and the chicken broth over
    medium-low heat.

  2. Meanwhile, in a 4-or 5-quart Dutch oven, cook the bacon, stirring, over
    medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.

  3. Add the red onion, celery, and scallion and cook, stirring, until the
    onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring
    constantly, for 3 minutes.

  4. Remove the Dutch oven from the heat, add the heated milk mixture, and
    whisk until well blended. Return to the heat and cook, whisking constantly,
    until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, or until thickened.
