    carolinajen4's Note:

    I fell in love with beer cheese soup at a local brewhouse in Columbus. That restaurant went out of business quite a while ago and I still miss that soup! I found this recipe in our local paper and I can't wait to make it for next weekend's Buckeye game! YUM! I added the garlic croutons and dash of paprika since I'm trying to replicate that old soup that I love. It would also be great in a sourdough bread bowl! MMMmmm. I love fall weather.

      Deeeeeeeeeeee-licious! I improvised a little bit due to what I had available. I used quartered Hormel pepperoni slices because I didn't have bacon. Instead of bacon fat, I used 3T. of butter to saute and I added some celery salt into the butter while sauteeing, because I didn't have celery. Also, I used an 8 oz. pckg. of cheddar plus several slices of Kraft singles b/c that's what I had. This made it creamier and not so sandy/grainy- textured. To keep from getting that texture, turn off heat AS SOON AS cheese is melted! Don't simmer to "meld" flavors- they'll already be perfectly melded. I also added some green onions and parsley for a little more color. YUMMMMMMY!!
