Cheese Smoked Snack Stick Soup

Cheese Smoked Snack Stick Soup Shadow

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. Old Wisconsin Snack Sticks (2 packages any variety, 8 oz. each), sliced
  • 12 pretzel rolls, 3" diameter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp. mesquite spice mix
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
  • 6 oz. reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Carefully hollow out pretzel rolls to form a bowl; reserve bread to dip in soup.
  • In a medium stockpot, brown Old Wisconsin Snack Sticks. Remove from pot and drain excess fat.
  • In the same pot, melt butter. Add celery, carrot and onion, and sauté until translucent.
  • Add flour to make a roux. Cook until flour, butter and vegetables are well mixed and flour is creamy in color; do not let flour brown. Stir in mesquite spice mix.
  • Add milk to the pot in a slow stream while whisking briskly to avoid lumps. Once milk is fully incorporated and comes to a boil, reduce to a simmer.
  • Return Snack Sticks to pot and melt cream cheese into soup. Remove from heat and add cheddar cheese; stir until melted.
  • Season to taste; pour soup into bread bowls and serve.
