  • 3-4 large brown potatoes (peeled and chopped). (See Note 1)
  • 4 Fresh Garlic Cloves (you will have to mince them or use already minced garlic).
  • 1/2 Cup Goat Butter
  • 3 tbsp AP Flour
  • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
  • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
  • Jacobsen Chili Salt
  • 16ish ounces Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 16ish ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Broccoli Heads (broken apart)
  • 8 cups (64 ounces) Chicken Broth
  • 6 pieces (strips) cooked bacon (chopped up)
  • See Note 2 for a few alternate seasonings suggestions


  1. Melt butter in a pot.
  2. Add AP Flour. Use a low heat.
  3. Stir the flour and butter. Do not let it burn.
  4. Add some chicken broth is the mixture is too dry
  5. Add the onion and garlic. Mix.
  6. When the onion pieces are translucent, add chicken broth
  7. Add chopped potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 10ish minutes. See Note 3.
  8. Add seasonings. How much is up to you. It is all about the taste test!
  9. Add Broccoli. Simmer for 10 mins.
  10. Add 16ish ounces heavy whipping cream. Stir. Add more if you want the soup creamier.
  11. Add 16ish ounces cheddar cheese and the bacon chunks
  12. Stir the soup until the cheese melts
  13. Taste test. Add spices and/or more cheese as you desire.
  14. If you want the broth thicker, mix 1 tbsp AP flour with 1 cup water. Mix thoroughly so there are no lumps. Then slowly add the mixture to the soup stirring as you go. Continue to simmer the soup, and it will thicken.
  15. Serve with some sour cream on top

Note 1: Amounts listed above are estimates. If you want, you can add more or less broccoli and potatoes.

Note 2: Here is a list of alternative spices that will go well with the soup. Dried tarragon, Chopped Cilantro, Salt, Black Pepper. You could, also, add celery, carrots, and/or sliced mushrooms. If you like it spicy, you could use Tony Characere’s or Slap ya Mama cajun seasonings. Jacobsen Salt Company has some deliciously flavored salt that you might like.

Note 3: If you boil the potatoes for too long, the potatoes will get mushy. The goal is just to get them soft.
