Sure, we added some broccoli, carrots, and potatoes for substance, but basically this soup delivery is a bowl of melted cheeses. We feel no need for apologies.


1 1/2 - cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
1 1/4 - cups shredded white cheddar cheese (5 ounces)
1/4 - cup butter
1/2 - cup finely chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2 - cup finely chopped carrot (1 medium)
1/4 - cup thinly sliced green onions (2)
2 - cloves garlic, minced
1/2 - cup all-purpose flour
1/2 - teaspoon dry mustard
5 - cups chicken broth
1 - 12 ounce bottle beer (1 1/2 cups)
1 - cup whipping cream
1 1/2 - cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes
1 1/2 - cups small broccoli florets
10 - slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and chopped
1/3 - cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/2 - teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
1/2 - teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Allow sharp cheddar cheese and white cheddar cheese to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a 4-quart Dutch oven heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add 1/2 cup onion, carrot, green onions, and garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in flour and dry mustard (mixture will be thick). Add broth all at once. Cook and stir until bubbly. Add beer and cream; stir in potatoes and broccoli. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Gradually stir in sharp cheddar cheese and white cheddar cheese, stirring after each addition until cheeses are melted. Stir in bacon, Parmesan cheese, hot pepper sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour soup into a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with a car adapter.

Tightly cover slow cooker and tote in an insulated carrier. At the tailgating site, plug slow cooker into car adapter and keep soup warm on warm-heat setting. (Soup will keep warm, covered, on warm-heat setting for up to 3 hours.) Stir before serving.
