Soup is good food, but Broccoli Cheese Soup is great food! As a kid I used to run around our house singing/screaming that slogan from the Campbell’s Soup commercials. That just may be one of the silly things kids do, but in my case the sentiment really stuck as I still adore soup. When it’s cold outside, few things make me feel as good as the smell emanating from a steaming bowl of heart warming soup.

I’m sure many have been the times when you’ve still been so hungry after finishing a good bowl of soup that you say you could even eat the bowl. Well, have you ever had soup in a bread bowl? The first time I experienced it was as a kid at my aunt’s house in Louisville and it just seemed so creative to me. The concept of having your meal in an edible bowl can really be magical for a young eater, as I found out when I presented my kids each with their own bread bowls filled to the brim with soup.

Servings: 1 cup
Author: Catherine McCord
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients  

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 heads broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • bread loaves for bowls (you can buy them at nice bakeries or Trader Joe's)

Instructions 

  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour on top of the onion, and use a whisk to work in the flour. Once it’s combined, cook the onion-flour mixture for 2 to 3 minutes. 
  • Add the milk and half-and-half, whisking constantly until combined.
  • Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, and nutmeg. 
  • Stir the broccoli florets into the soup. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to low, then simmer the soup until it’s thickened and the broccoli is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and check the consistency. The soup should be thick, but if it still seems too thick, splash in a little more broth.
  • Add the cheese and stir until melted. Serve the soup in bread bowls. 
  • NOTE: For a smoother soup, use an immersion blender to puree the soup before adding the cheese.

Comments

  1. My favorite Thanksgiving food would have to be tamales. My entire family puts all of their left over turkey in a pot(where we season the meat), and we all sit and make hundreds of tamales to freeze for the year. It not only stocks our freezers with yummy tamales, but it gives us all a chance to spend some extra time together over the holidays.

  2. My favorite part of thanksgiving is the stuffing from inside the turkey. So moist and delicious. We have always had spaghetti on Christmas Eve. The tradition was started the year my parents were divorced and we were feeling sad around holiday time. Pasta is a pick me up food at our house 🙂

  3. My favorite thanksgiving recipe is my grandma’s pumpkin pie which uses apple butter

  4. Love Ree’s program! Record it and watch a week’s worth at a time, bypassing commercials of course. Her recipes and technics are great. Keep up the great work, both Ree and Weelicios.

  5. My favorite dish is my grandmother’s cornbread dressing, which I will be reimagining as a gluten-free version this year. Wish me luck!

  6. I would LOVE my own copy of this cookbook! Not only am I obsessed with the holidays and tradition, but I’m a first generation born Amaerican who is trying to figure out this whole ‘American cooking’ thing for my husband and our boys!

    My favorite thanksgiving recipe is maple turkey with apple cider gravy. Oh, and Paula Deen’s green bean casserole! For Christmas I whip up a buch de noel!

  7. I love the Pioneer Eonan!! I can’t wait to read through this cookbook ad make more of Ree’s delish meals. My favorite recipe for the holidays is Cranberry Relish:
    1 bag fresh cranberries
    1 tart green apple
    1 sweet honey crisp apple
    1 orange (peeled and segmented)
    Zest of the orange
    1 cup sugar

    Pulse all ingredients in a food processed to desired coarse consistency. Serve as a salad side dish or on top of Thanksgiving turkey. This is fabulous to spread on leftover turkey sandwiches… My mouth is watering! I hope I win a signed cookbook!

    1 orange (peeled and segmented)

  9. My favorite thanksgiving dish is Pumpkin Dump Cake. Make the pumpkin pie (29 oz.) according to directions and pour into a 9×13 dish. Cut a stick of butter into 1 package of yellow cake mix (add walnuts if you want) and then pat the cake/butter mix over the pumpkin mix and bake according to pie directions on the can. SO GOOD.

  10. Our favorite is the classic green bean casserole, which I’ve had to make Vegan versions for us.

  11. Our family’s favorite Thanksgiving food is ALL the side dishes. . . haha. . . especially the green bean casserole with extra crispy onions! YUM!

  12. Made this soup today, very yummy although strangely lacking carrots so I added them. (posted to Twitter @j2c and Facebook)

  13. I absolutely adore Ree and the Drummond family; what a great giveaway! Her Chipotle Chicken Chili is on the stove as I type.

  14. Thank you for a great giveaway, I love watching her show on Food network every weekend.

  15. Broccoli is my favorite vegetable! That soup looks amazing.

  17. Saw pioneer woman on tv today—she’s wonderful…can’t wait to get my first cookbook but she was making the French bread pizza’s on her show today that looked yummy!

  18. The big favourite Holiday dish in our home is Turnip Puff. It’s the only way I will eat a turnip. Even my toddler likes it. Of course, my mom’s stuffing is popular, as well as the ambrosia salad. Gotta have a little sweet with the savoury. 😉

  19. My tummy is already rumbling for Christmas dinner! Everything looks so amazing. <3

  20. Day after Thanksgiving dip: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce layered in a pan and baked until hot. Delicious!!!

  21. My all time fav is tamales at Christmas time. My family makes them every year and I look forward to my first batch on Christmas eve to follow up with eating more at Christmas morning and then some….

  22. Cornbread dressing with oyster sauce! Handed down from my great- grandmother…Happy Thanksgiving!

  23. Homemade dressing stuffed in the turkey!! Originally made by great grandfather with chestnuts from a tree in his backyard.

  24. Love all of Ree’s recipes. and never miss her show. She males recipes with things most people have on hand and they are good family recipes that are down to earth that most people eat.

  25. Love how your children have bookmarked nearly every page! Looks delicious. Been dying to try her recipes from this book. Thanks, Weelicious!

  26. I would love to win a copy of your cookbook. Everything looks sooooooo good…

  27. Pumpkin pie! I never make it any other time, so I just look so forward to it. The soup looks delish!

  28. My favorite Holiday Recipe is my Grandmother Dowell’s Stuffing Recipe at Thanksgiving every year.

    Grandmother Dowell’s thanksgiving stuffing(dressing):
    4 3/4 cups chopped zucchini and/or yellow neck squash
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons chopped onion
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons dried celery
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup unsalted chicken broth
    2 eggs slightly beaten
    1 (8 ounce) package herb-seasoned stuffing
    1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
    1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 sm container of plain yogurt
    chopped pieces of turkey or chicken (optional)
    Vegetable cooking spray

    Cook zucchini and yellow neck squash, onion and celery in 1 cup boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain well.
    add chicken broth and the next 7 ingredients. Mix well. Add chopped meat if you like
    pour into a sprayed baking dish.
    Bake uncovered at 350 for 35 to 45 min or until heat through out.
    note: i just cooked some of the squash and zucchini some in a wok or skillet until partly tender and mixed in instead of boiling it.

  29. I’ll be making this yummy soup this week and hope I can win the book to make more of he delicious recipes!

  30. ~*~ FYI: I made the Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe above and it was DELISH!!!! Thank you again for posting it! ~ * ~

    Our favorite Christmas meal is made by my husband: BOEUF BOURGUIGNON (BEEF BURGUNDY)! Everyone raves about it and looks forward to it every year. If we don’t have it, everyone complains.

  31. Our families favorite recipe is our Christmas breakfast. My mom started this and we carry on this tradition with our little ones. I make a sausage/egg breakfast casserole the night before and love that it can bake while we open presents. We also make banana/strawberries together.

  32. I love the recipes that both you and The Pioneer Woman have given us. I have Ree’s first two cookbooks and would adore this third one!

  33. Our favorite for a few years now is sugared cranberries in a dish to snack on while waiting for the turkey to be done.

  34. Every year I look forward making and eating the apple sausage stuffing recipe I found years ago when I was still able to attend Thanksgivings with my family. (I’ve since moved 4000 miles away, and I’ve only made it home for Thanksgiving once.) I didn’t make it for Thanksgiving this year (I now live in Canada, so Thanksgiving was last month) because I was 9 months pregnant and just didn’t feel up to doing even part of a Thanksgiving dinner. (‘Cause, you know, if you’re going to go to the effort of making even part of one, you might as well go whole hog & invite people over & everything.) Anyway, this is link to the recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/the-best-turkey-dressing-stuffing-146134

  35. I love making capirotada for Christmas! It’s a Mexican bread pudding that I make every year 🙂

  36. My daughter and I love Ree’s recipes. I watch the daily show as often as possible. I reared my four children in Oklahoma so I love it that Ree lives there too.
    A recipe that my father always made was what he called Ambrosia. I don’t know if this is a common thing or not but it was a work of love he made for Thanksgiving.
    He chopped apples, pecans, oranges and added canned pineapple chunks, coconut, and cherries. He chopped everything so small that it blended totally into one delicious bite every time you dipped your spoon in. He didn’t use any salad dressing but the juice from all the fruits make a wonderful soupy texture. There was never any leftover.

  37. I absolutely love all kinds of pie: chocolate mid pie, dirt pudding pie, and apple pie with ice cream on top!

  38. I love the Italian wedding soup and stuffing and mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. Christmas I just love all the baking we do for Christmas. We make biscotti’s and pignoli cookies. Plus we always make new different kinds of cookies every year so this way we can have new favorites.

  39. Luv Ree’s rosemary rolls….yum! Would love to win a signed copy of her new cookbook…my fingers are crossed. 🙂
    Posted on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!

  40. I can’t remember if I entered already or not. I hope that doesn’t disqualify me.

    Of course I also hope I win one of Ree’s cookbooks, too. Thanks for the opportunity!

  41. I can’t imagine the holidays without my grandmother’s dressing and gravy, it is delicious! We also have about ten casseroles to go with it! We are by far that Southern family with every casserole you could want…and pies, lots and lots of pies! 🙂

  42. I didn’t make pumpkin pie one year because hardly any of it was eaten the year before (I make several kinds). My grandson was heartbroken when he found out there was no pumpkin pie – turned out that it was his very favorite! He wouldn’t eat any other kind that Thanksgiving! Of course I have made pumpkin pie ever since!
    I love Ree’s giblet gravy – can’t stand white turkey gravy – so glad to see it. I hope everyone will make it from now on!

  43. My family has always made this to die for dessert every thanksgiving and Christmas. We call it dough boys! Its a homemade sweet bread dough, deep fried and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar. The outside is golden and crunchy while the inside is hot and doughy! Yumm. Can’t want for the holidays!

  44. glad you discovered the Pioneer Woman- I followed her blog early on. She’s fab! Try her Olive cheese bread- pure heaven.
    favorite holiday dish is my mom’s stuffing on Thanksgiving! Or deviled eggs…

  45. Love the holidays… Love cooking… Love PW… what more could a girl ask for… Oh yeah a PW cookbook 😉

  46. I love Ree and would love to win her cookbook. Favorite Christmas recipe is this specific “Breakfast casserole” recipe that I make on Christmas Eve and refrigerate over night, then bake it off on Christmas morning while we open presents . This is the one thing the fam expects and I could never get awa with not making it, Tradition is a wonderful thing! Sorr , the letter between the t and u on m keboard is not working.

  47. I love the Pioneer Woman! I would love to win this beautiful cookbook!!

  48. Dorie Greenspan’s brioche pecan sticky buns. Takes me two days to make ’em, but boy are they worth it.

  49. easy and good soup for cold evenings or anytime. would love to win ree”s new cookbook her recipes always seem to fit right in

  50. I made this soup tonight for dinner and it was FANTASTIC. Mine was thick so I did add extra broth. We’re vegetarians but veggie broth made an excellent substitute for the meat broth called for in the recipe.

  51. We love pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and, of course, my Granny’s cornbread stuffing!

  52. Our favorite family recipes for the holidays is a yummy carrot cake with cream cheese icing and pumpkin pie with a brown sugar struessel. Can’t wait for the holidays!

  53. My favorite holiday dish is loaded potato soup. All that yummy cheesy creaminess warms my soul.

  54. Every Christmas Eve since my kids were old enough, we do 3 types of fondue with all sorts of things to dip and cook. We start with cheese, then oil, then chocolate. This year instead of oil, we are going to make a spiced up broth to cook up meats and veggies. I love this tradition, we all look forward to it, and it gets all of us around the table for an extended period of time. I would love to win a copy of this book!

  55. I would say frosted Christmas Cookies!! I would also say I would love to win a copy of her book.

  56. My Mom makes i tomato aspic that most everyone loves- except me. My family loves her cheesy homemade mashed potatoes! And my spinach salad with clementines, pecans, dried cranberries, herbed goat cheese!

  57. I would love a copy of her cookbook, everything she makes is amazing!!

  58. I love Ree’s recipes also and would LOVE to have a cookbook! GREAT Broccoli and Cheese soup!

  59. I love the Pioneer Woman’s cookbooks and Weelicious, and would love to win this one too, My kids are picky eaters but I can honestly say the recipes from the previous Pioneer Woman cookbooks my kids just LOVE them.

  60. Love Love Love soups, weelicious and pioneer woman! What a dynamite combo!!

  61. It’s so hard to choose a favorite Thanksgiving dish… I love stuffing. Last year I made a cornbread bacon stuffing and it was delicious! I think it will be a new tradition. Oh boy, my mouth is starting to water just thinking about Thanksgiving dinner!

  62. I make a wonderful brussel sprout casserole for Christmas. Even family members who don’t like brussel sprouts love it! It makes awesome left overs too!

  63. 3 years ago we started a new thanksgiving tradition. Instead of a turkey, we make my moms ULTIMATE corckpot potato soup! She throws it together in the morning, then lets it sit during the say while we make cookies for other people, play games, and eat snacks. Then, by dinner time we have a wonderful potato soup. It is deffinetly the best thanksgiving soup out there!

  68. Newly discovered this amazing lady known as the Pioneer Woman! Now I can’t live without her recipes and cooking show!

  71. Rees wonderful recipe for cinnamon rolls. Make for holidays every year

  72. My husband’s favorite, must have broccoli cassarole! It is really the only thing I KNOW I’ll be making for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

  73. I shared on twitter that my favorite holiday recipe is oyster dressing.

  74. The dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas, When I was a child, I remember Daddy, going around to oyster houses and farmers to reserve the oysters for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Mama and Granmama made oyster dressing, Mamma’s was best.

    daddy

  75. Thanksgiving and Christmas dressing (oyster dressing). When I a child, I remember daddy checking out oyster houses or farmers to get the oysters lined up for the dressing, Mama and Grandmama made oyster dressing, Mama made it best.

    grandmama

  76. Best addition to our Thanksgiving EVER was the PW creamy mashed potatoes. Making them the day before just totally cuts all the stress out and allows me to concentrate on that gravy the next day!!

  77. My favorite thing to make with my Thanksgiving turkey is my apple cranberry stuffing.

  78. My FIL’s homemade stuffing is the best, too bad my kids don’t enjoy it. On Thanksgiving if they don’t eat their dinner, theirs always pie right?!

  79. it’s tough to pick just one, but I’d have to say I couldn’t do without a mountain of stuffing on my plate!!

  80. P.S. I dont know what URL means,new to the computer,my best recipe for Thanksgiving is the turkey with gravy.

  81. My favorite recipe for Thanksgiving is the Turkey with gravy………

  82. I make a Turkey that I baste in 1 cup soy sauce and 6 cloves of garlic and 2 sticks of butter.. Beautiful brown/gold color and the taste is amazing.

  83. #weeliciousgiveaway! youre awesome! Sweet potato casserole is always a hit!

  84. Christmas is nothing without family and a big ole pot of a variety of tamales! Pork, turkey picadillo & queso fresco with pasilla pepper tamales!! Is it Christmas yet??

  85. Party potatoes!!! We serve them at every major holiday – mashed potatoes w butter, sour cream, milk, sour cream, season salt, pepper, and sautéed yellow onions. Mix it all together, add an egg and cook until browned. Yum!!!

  86. Maybe not my favorite holiday dish, but the thing that reminds me most of holiday dinners is my late grandmother’s western raisin pie.

  87. I was going to make this soup tonight and forgot the broccoli! I thought about substituting potatoes and make a cheesy potato soup but the broccoli just sounds better. So have to improvise for tonight but tomorrow for sure!!!

  88. My moms dressing is the best!!!! I love it so much she cooks me another small dish of it to take home 🙂

  89. My husband and I are having out first solo (no extended family) Thanksgiving. I would love to have this book before then!

  90. My favorite thing to make at Christmas is “chex mix” (over 30 ingredients!) – my grandma made it every year when I was a kid – now I have taken over the time- consuming tradition, but it’s great to nibble on for a yummy salty treat!

  91. My mom’s family has a Christmas morning tradition of serving a breakfast casserole that began long before I was born and is one that still continues. The breakfast casserole recipe is ONLY made on christmas morning and as generations grow up the honor of making the casserole gets passed down. Honestly, for most of us it isn’t even about the quality of the recipe or casserole – there are a number of things I could easily change to make it better – it is all about the tradition of making it the same way and sharing warm breakfast casserole with those we love on Christmas morning each year.

  92. I usually look for recipes online, but Ree’s books have to be held in one’s hand, and browsed through while sitting in front of a fire with a nice cup of tea. The photos are every bit as good as the recipes! By the way, I have made this soup many times, and it is so delicious. Don’t be afraid to add the nutmeg, it really adds something special!

  93. I love the Pioneer Woman! and I’m intrigued with your website. Thanks for the drawing entry.

  107. My absolute favorite Thanksgiving dish is green bean casserole. It’s just not Thanksgiving without it 🙂

  108. My mom’s dressing. She has passed many years ago now, and I keep the tradition alive of making her dressing. She began teaching me how to make it when I was little, learning the steps of crumbling the cornbread, and then adding each ingredient only to be followed by a taste test at each step. There is not recipe, just a lot of love and hoping my memory doesn’t fail me.

  109. I’d love to win a cookbook! The soup looks good – I will try it because I love broccoli cheese soup.

  110. My favorite holiday recipes are Rum & Sweet Potato Casserole and Ree’s Delicious, Creamy Mashed Potatoes!

    thanks for the giveaway!

  112. My favorite dish for Thanksgiving is hands down my grandma’s dressing. My kids would say theirs is her rolls. For Christmas dinner we always do an appetizer buffet, and we always change it up, but my favorite is usually my uncle’s shrimp dip. Yum!

  113. My favorite thanksgiving dish is an artichoke parmasean sourdough stuffing…. Maybe there’s a new fave in Rhee’s book

  124. I do all the cooking for my family and really wouldn’t want it any other way, but I think their favorite is dessert anything and everything but bunch love sweets!

  125. I love all things “Pioneer Woman”. Would love to win that new cookbook!

  126. My mom always makes broccoli casserole! But I have to make a homemade apple pie to share with my family!

  127. I love watching Pioneer Woman on HGTV. Great recipes and so family friendly.

  128. For years and years by recipe that I love to make is fresh cranberry sauce, unfortunately I found out last year when I made it that my boyfriend at the time, now husband, doesn’t like it.

  129. My very favorite Thanksgiving meal, is an smoked turkey that has been brined for a couple of days using kosher salt, lemon, maple syrup, and some rosemary. Of course you have to have mashed potatoes, with giblet gravy , cornbread dressing(not stuffing), green beans that are home grown, and corn. Of course to end the meal, pumpkin and pecan pies.

  130. We make German Pancakes every Christmas eve morning & Danish Puff for Christmas. Both recipes my grandma handed down to us. There are special memories with the traditions, she taught me how to make them. I loved our baking times together. My grandma was the kindest, most loving woman ever!

  131. Love Ree on her show Pioneer Woman. Would love to have a cookbook.
    I am going to make this soup. It looks wonderful.

  132. I would really like to make a bowl of this, and sit in my favorite chair eating it while looking at her new cookbook. Sounds like a perfect ending to a long day of work.

  133. We do the sourdough bread bowl with clam chowder in California. Also started new tradition of Ciopinno for Christmas dinner – seafood stew with a rich tomatoey base. We make a large quantity in a turkey fryer, then have plenty for leftovers to take home for the next day. Instead of one person in the kitchen cooking all day- the old prime rib dinner- we all share the prep. Someone chops onions and bell peppers. Others clean the shellfish, crab and shrimp and clams (whatever seasonal fresh seafood- here in California Christmas is Dungeness crab season) The person cooking outside (gas turkey fryer) gets a bottle of wine. Some for the cook, some for the stew. My sister ( the fisherwoman) gets all the credit for her recipe. We still have traditional desserts and cookies on Christmas day.

  134. This sounds so yummy, perfect for a cold night. Will definitely be making, and really really really want to win a cookbook.

  135. A tradition in our family is to make homemade egg noodles and then cook in broth. My grandma used to do it and now my mom does. I will have to learn as well.

  136. I would love to win a new cookbook! I am constantly looking for new recipes for home and work- food preparation recipes need to be revamped! Thanks for all your hard work spreading healthy attractive food!

  137. A tradition I have continued with my kids is making the egg casserole on Christmas Eve for our Christmas morning brunch!!

  138. My mothers chocolate pie with whipped cream and crushed candy canes.

  139. Just liked and shared your page. Always looking for kid-friendly recipes for my 8 year old granddaughter.

  140. Hi Just wondered what all purpose flour is as from England and love the sound of your soup also when you say chicken broth does that mean chicken stock as like cooking now as have not done so for so many years Thank you

  141. I love making a great raw veggie dish that includes broccoli, cauliflower, celery & onion with the addition of Craisins, bacon and sunflower seeds. It adds an extra ‘crunch’ along with the great traditional Turkey Day fixins’!

  142. I love Tyler Florence’s recipe for green bean casserole. No canned soup or processed ff onions!

  153. This recipe looks fabulous! I have long been in search of a good “Panera Bread” mimic, but Pioneer Woman is just as good. 😀

  154. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is the butter rolls that I adapted from the recipe my parents had at their bakery. They have since retired, but it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without butter rolls!

  155. Mocha Punch is our favorite Christmas recipe. Even tho this is an icecream drink, it’s still perfect!!!

  156. I always love to bake pumpkin and pecan pies. This year I am going to add a dessert from the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook. Love her shows.

  157. yum love this soup combo and the bread bowl makes it even better! cant wait to try it. would love to check out the new pioneer woman book! we love the weelicious site and use the books ++!

  158. Love broccoli cheese soup and can’t wait to try this version!
    Thank you for the chance to win a cookbook! I love Pioneer Woman!

  159. Love this kind of soup and i would love to win the cook books watch pioneer woman every week.

  160. Thanksgiving: My favorite dish is a cranberry mold with layered pecans and sour cream.

  161. My husband and I have to have bleu cheese, cranberry, and walnut stuffed pear arugula salad every Thanksgiving!

  162. Every Thanksgiving my Nana and I make her famous secret recipe for dressing! It’s amazing, and why Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday!

  163. On my dad’s side we always have chili and oyster stew for Christmas Eve dinner. I still am not a fan of the oyster stew, but it’s not Christmas until I have a big bowl of steaming chili!

  164. My Momma makes nuts and bolts for the holidays and I love them, nuts, pretzels, and homemade crackers mixed with her secret sauce and baked until crunchy, it’s silly, but I absolutely love it but can’t seem to make it taste as good as hers, no matter what I try. Would love a copy of Ree’s new cookbook, absolutely!

  165. We love Tabouli with our Thanksgiving Turkey and fresh cranberry relish. Greatly compliment each other.

  166. Would love to win this book. Love Ree! Looking forward to discovering Weelicious.

  167. Yum – so many wonderful ideas – and the hard part is viewing while at work and having to wait to get home to make it!

  168. We love turkey, cranberry and arugula sandwiches! Oh and we also love weelicious and Ree Drummond!

  169. My favorite is the turkey and stuffing for either Thanksgiving or Christmas and then the left overs for a sandwich.

  170. I have one of her cookbooks and would love to have another. Her recipes are ones that my picky eater likes.

  171. Every Thanksgiving my mom & I make a pumpkin roll! It’s always a hit!

  172. My favorite thing at Christmas is all the goodies my sisters and I make that mom used to make.

  173. My favorite is sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top! I was so silly when I was young, I wouldn’t even try it. But I must add that then it was not served with marshmallows to sway me ! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

  174. My family loves Ree’s recipes, especially this one! She’s one of those bloggers you just fall in love with so quickly. Just like you too, Catherine!

  175. One of our families favorite traditions for Thanksgiving is Sweet Potato Suffle. And we mix it up a little and forget the pumpkin pie; instead we have a pumpkin roll.

  176. My family’s favorite holiday meal is actually Ree’s Simple Perfect Chili! 🙂 I make it EVERY Halloween before we go trick or treating. We invite grandparents and friends over and have corn bread and chili or chili dogs!

  177. Thanks to our Danish heritage, our favorite and must have dish is Rodkal. We don’t usually have cranberry sauce because this red cabbage is perfect with turkey!

  178. We love PW recipes and my daughter is always excited when I dish up one of her recipes. Perfect Potatoes Au Gratin is a great side dish to a Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham. I love this giveaway!!

  179. My boys aren’t fans of turkey, so instead we have an awesome steak dinner with twice baked potatoes. We don’t spend tons of time on dinner and it leaves more time for board games!

  180. I make monster cinnamon rolls at the holidays! They are so large you can’t even eat a whole one by yourself!

  181. We love my grandma’s French Canadian desserts like Pets de Soeurs, or Nun’s Farts (no kidding, that’s really what they’re called!). You simply roll out leftover pie dough, layer with brown sugar and slices of butter, roll up, slice into pinwheel rounds, and bake in milk and maple syrup. Warm yummy pastry goodness!

  182. Our family favorite is my grandmother’s cornbread dressing recipe. It is a must have for Thanksgiving. Some of the main ingredients are Jiffy Corn bread…mmmmmm sweet and Jimmy Dean sausage with sage and Jimmy Dean sausage with maple! So delish!

  183. our favorite recipe is cranberry sauce. i taught my husband how to make it and he makes it better than i do now.

  184. My favorite thanksgiving recipe is Ree’s pecan pie. I make it every year!

  185. I’ve made this soup and it is divine! I’d love to give this cookbook to my Mom for Christmas.

  186. My fav dish at any holiday gathering are homemade rolls!!!! I’m a carb girl 😉 altho another Christmas favorite is ebelskivers, which is a tradition in my hubby’s fam on Christmas morning and when we moved away I had to learn to make them…and have grown to love!! (Altho I will admit that a Traders Joes makes some pretty yummy ones that I *may* have used right after having my son instead of cooking)

  187. I’m not a cook book person – I like to cook from blogs, usually. But, I must have this cook book since every single holiday I end up making at least one Pioneer Woman recipe – usually more than one.

  188. My mom makes Bohemian egg dumplings, which is a long-time family recipe. No mashed potatoes at our house, just these dumplings and stuffing. Yum!

  189. I make a really good apple crumble for Thanksgiving. It’s easier than an apple pie, and tastes even better!

  190. Need Ree’s step-by-step instructions for preparing the Turkey. This year I want to do the cooking for my mom/ famiy !!! Visuals are a must for this to be successful:)
    This alone sets Ree apart from any others.

  191. My favorite recipe is for Thanksgiving… It is a Mashed Sweet Potatoes sprinkled with brown sugar and topped off with Chambord. After it is cooked it gives a crispy top to the sweet potatoes! Yumma!!!

  192. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe I make each year is my Sweet Potato Casserole

  193. I have the cook book, all of them but would love a signed one so I can donate my new one to a deserving person that doesn’t have funds to purchase one.

  194. I love Ree! My family likes to have ham for the Thanksgiving and Christmas, And deviled eggs. And onion dip…

  195. Would love to have her cookbook! I love her other one that I have and know I would love this one too!

  196. OH MY GOSH I love Ree! I have been reading her blog and obsessing over her food recipes for years! My favorite holiday recipe is a bit of a different tradition, but for Christmas Eve dinner we always have tamales! We go all out and feast on tamales, guacamole, and beans. YUM!

  197. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is mashed potatoes with cheese on top, broiled for a crisp layer on top.

  198. Yummy! We just had our first frost, so you posted this recipe at the perfect time.

  199. I haven’t made one dish from Rhee’s books that my family hasn’t loved. I’d love her new book!

  223. I love this soup and I make it at least once a month! Our favorite family holiday dish is dressing! Yum!

  224. The holidays wouldn’t be the same without my grandmother’s Italian wedding soup. I never enjoyed it as much as I did the sights and sounds of my little Italian grandmother in our kitchen preparing the fresh Italian greens, the dozens of mini chicken meatballs, or the rich cheesy soft croutons. She passed a few years ago but I have the honor of preparing her soup for the first time this Thanksgiving for our family. I hope I make her proud!

  226. My mom’s stuffing or my grandfather’s potato pancakes are my Thanksgiving favorites.

  227. The holidays would never be the same without my grandmother’s Italian wedding soup. I don’t think I enjoy it as much as I do the smells and sounds of my grandmother in our kitchen preparing the homemade chicken meatballs, or the cheesy soft croutons, or the fresh Italian greens. She’s been gone a few years now but I have the honor of preparing that soup this Thanksgiving for the first time for my family. I hope I make her proud!

  228. My nana’s meat and potato stuffing! Basically mashed potatoes and hamburger with lotssssss of seasoning! DELICIOUS

    I have your first two books and love them. Cannot wait to get this one~
    Thank you Ree~

  235. Homemade Cinnamon Rolls on Christmas morning……does it get better than that?!

  236. My favorite cookie to have at Christmas is my Grandmother’s Italian Wichadada. She came to this country as a little girl about 120 years ago and making these cookies became a tradition in our family. The filling is a combination of figs, raisins, dates, nuts, oranges, lemons, and spices. A delicate pastry is cut into small rectangles and a spoon of this mixture is placed in the center, The pastry is then folded over and crimped (much like making ravioli), baked and brushed with a light frosting. Time consuming, but delicious! My daughters and I enjoy getting together before the holidays to make this special cookie…….it beings back many warm memories of being with my Grandma when I was a little girl!

  237. My Mom and I watch and enjoy your show every week. It would be great to get your book.

  238. My favorite Christmas recipe is for mince tarts. Nothing reminds me more of England at Christmas than making those things!

  239. I could go on and on about my favs because..well I love everything but if I mist pick just one..pumpkin pie!!with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg on top;p

  240. Oddly enough, I just love mashed potatoes and gravy!! I know that is not a super special holiday recipe, but it’s my fave!! Also, I love getting my Granny’s homemade rolls! This will be our 8th holiday season without her, but my mom and aunt and uncle keep the tradition going!!! Hope you all have a blessed holiday season!!

  241. We always have ambrosia salad for Thanksgiving & grape salad for Christmas.

  242. I shared and record her on sat morns. Would love her new book. Plus iam a Texas country girl ……love all the wee stuff too

  243. Oyster stuffing in a cast iron skillet, baked in the wood cook stove. Mmm! Make the stuffing, mix in rinsed fresh oysters, place in a cast iron skillet with lots of butter on the bottom so the stuffing gets a yummy crust on it! Bake 20-30 min at 350 So good!

  244. Manicottie @ Christmas stuffed with cheese and spinach! Jum! Love that tradition!

  245. I love Pumpkin Pie and Cheesecake during the Holidays! I especially like the super easy recipe on the back of the Libby’s canned pumpkin. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac so I started just baking the custard and forgetting the crust altogether. Then came premade Cheesecake filling next to the whipped topping at the grocery store. So now I bake the custard filling and once it cools I spread a layer of the cheesecake filling all over. Just before I serve it I drizzle Caramel Sauce over it. Yummylishcious and Gluten Free!

  246. My mother always made homemade noodles. This is a tradition I’m tryng to continue.

  247. One of my favorite Thanksgiving/Christmas recipes, is my Mom’s stuffing! I use her recipe, and my husband, loves it! His late mother also loved it! It’s always a big hit whenever we make it!

  248. One of my favorite family recipes is an orange praline yam casserole from my mother-in-law’s cookbook. by Marlene Sorosky.. It combines cooked yams with a little brandy, melted butter, and OJ with a brown sugar, butter,& pecan topping. Everyone also loves my Grandmother’s tea punch with lots of fresh squeezed juices in it.. it is my favorite punch.

  249. My daughter’s favorite type of soup is eaten out of a bread bowl. I’ll send her the recipe for the broccoli cheese soup!

  250. My grandmother’s Pumpkin chiffon pie, so light and fluffy!! And turkey on the grill…Yes I live in a cold climate, but I do grill out year round. It’s too tasty not to!!☺☺

  251. My favorite holiday recipes for either Christmas or Thanksgiving is my mothers home made stuffing and also cranberry relish with oranges, pecans and pineapple in it. SO delicious!

  259. My FAVORITE Christmas/holiday recipe would definitely have to be these cookies my grandmother always makes that I refer to as “moon cookies.” We’re Macedonian, and I believe the recipe comes from “the old country”. 😉 They’re simple dough-like cookies, shaped as half-cresent moons, and covered in white powered; they’re really easy to make, and I absolutely <3 them! 🙂 Thanks so much for having this fun giveaway!

  262. We love homemade potato soup on Christmas Eve. Just love your recipes and your show. I love the step by step instructions and would love your new cookbook. It would be fun to share with my 3 granddaughters to learn how to cook. Happy Thanksgiving.

  263. Four years ago I started hosting Christmas morning brunch for my parents and two brothers. It was a family tradition that I wanted to start for my girls. I created a different tablescape every year and planned a new special menu as well. Every one would come over around 9, we would eat and then open presents. My girls never once, in all 4 years, asked to open presents before we ate. They were so excited to see the pretty decorations and the anticipation of our family coming over, that the presents were at the back of their minds. Which is exactly what I think it should be…..all about family and the beautiful gift that was given to us so long ago. All that being said, last year I merged a couple different recipes and came up with a bread pudding with spiced rum sauce, that was rather tasty! My Grandmother loves bread pudding, and she was able to come down for Christmas and share our annual brunch.
    I wanted to have a dish that I knew she would like. That is probably one of my favorite Christmas recipes, just for the fact that I will remember her being there and the special time we all shared together!

  264. Oh I can’t wait to try this, I once had gumbo in a bread bowl, it was so good to eat the bowl when I finished

  265. I really enjoy watching your show on the food network. The cookbook looks beautiful!

  266. I love Broccoli Cheese soup and I would dearly love to have this new cookbook! Strawberry Pretzel Salad is a favorite at both Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations at our house.

  267. Great recipe! Just tried it tonight and it went over really well. Even my somewhat picky 4 year old was into it! Though I do think I’ll add more broccoli next time. Thank you for posting this!

  268. My fave is pears stuffed with a cream cheese pecan filling covered with lime jello topped with marchino cherries

  269. Looks delicious! I can’t wait to make this myself. Thanks for the chance to win!

  270. My favorite is my Moms apple turkey sausage stuffing. No holiday is complete without it! I can’t wait for thanksgiving!

  271. Broccoli and Cheese Soup is my eldest daughters FAVORITE!! Not to mention that we are just a soup lovin kind of family anyway! If we can turn it into a soup or make it just like the one we love at the restaurant or its a newbie that looks tasty we are so there!! And best of all we made it ouselves! Yummy Yummy in our Tummies!

  272. Sage Dressing for Thanksgiving. It brings the best memories of my mom making it as I was growing up and it tastes wonderful.

  273. I will be making Sage Dressing for my family this Thanksgiving. My mom made it every year when I was growing up so it brings back a lot of wonderful memories and besides it tastes wonderful.

  274. My favorite recipe is my Grammy’s popcorn balls which she made every Christmas and I have continued the tradition.

  275. I love watching the Pioneer Woman and trying her many wondrful recipes! Will be making the Broccoli Cheese soup recipe very soon!

  276. Soup is just the best thing I can think off to warm my soul. Love this.

  277. Yumm…made that soup a few weeks ago, so delicious! Favorite Thanksgiving/ Christmas dish…well I am Canadian so we already had ours. I made a great acorn squash side dish and happened to be from Pioneer Woman’s website. Delicious!

  278. My favorite Christmas recipe has been handed down for at least four generations. On Christmas Eve, we make ambrosia with naval oranges, flaked coconut, pineapple chunks, crushed pineapple, and maraschino cherries. Sometimes I cheat, though, and don’t wait for Christmas to make it!

  279. Soup in a bread bowl! Can’t wait to try it! Look forward to the show every week! Was going to go to the signing in Dallas, but had to go to south Texas for a funeral. Sorry I missed meeting you!

  280. One of my favorite salads for Thanksgiving as a child was an orange and lemon layered Jello salad. It starts with orange Jello then marshmallows then lemon then bananas and repeat again. Then topped with whip cream and maraschino cherries!

  281. My hubby does the big ole bird on the grill so that frees up my oven to make yummy dishes! My family loves my corn souffle’, pumpkin gnocchi, and cranberry chestnut stuffing…oops! I just drooled a little on my keyboard…

  282. My mother made a marsh mellow salad that is really easy. A bag of marsh mellows, 2 cans of mandarin oranges, 1 can of chunky pineapple, 1 16 oz tub of sour cream. She called it the 24 hour salad, because you made it the day before and refrigerated it over night. I love this salad and my kids love it too. Thank you for bringing that memory back, my mother passed away 6 years ago. It is wonderful to spend Thanksgiving together as a family.

  283. Thank you for being such a down to earth person. I have never been one to be glued to a cooking show, however I could watch your show 24/7. Your presentation is low key and very enjoyable. Blessings to you.

  284. Cut clean, large sweet potatoes in quarters and boil til tender, but not completely done. Cool slightly and peel. In large skillet (depending on the amount you are cooking) mix 3 cups maple syrup, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 stick butter and bring to boil. Add sweet potatoes and simmer til slightly crusty. Serve with any syrup left in the pan.

  285. Favorite Thanksgiving recipe? Roasted turkey and stuffing as only my mother could make it!

  286. For Christmas…and stickin’ with the soup theme…my mother’s homemade French onion soup. She cooks the broth and onions on the stove and then fills up the cutest (and I can’t even imagine how old) individual ceramic bowls, adding some homemade croutons and topped with cheese to go in the stove for the perfect melted, bubbly tops! I love the smell and waiting for that first bite when you break through the cheese…makes my mouth water! It wouldn’t be Christmas dinner without my personal, hot and perfectly bubbly bowl of her soup!

  287. wow this looks great, woder if I can get my kids to eat broccoli like this??!!
    We love butternut squash soup, it is nice and creamy and slightly sweet!

  288. My grandpa and I always made gumbo for Christmas Eve. He passed away this summer and I get weepy every time I look at the cookbook we used and scribbled all over, or think about making it without him.

  289. I’ve not been able to purchase one of Ree’s cookbooks yet, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win one!!! She is just the sweetest person and I can tell her food is SCRUMPTIOUS!!!

  290. Love Ree’s cookbooks!!! You have to try her cheesey potatoe soup too!!! It ROCKS!!!

  292. Definitely good ol’ cut-out sugar cookies! We always iced them as a family while listening to carols!

  293. I loved my moms Sage Dressing. I use to eat the leftovers in a sandwich. Mom use to laugh and tease me that I was eating a bread, bread sandwich. I will be making it this year for my family for Thanksgiving.

  294. It is either our loaded potato casserole or our broccoli & cheese cassarole- after the turkey and stuffing of course,and out molded cranberry pecan sour cream swirled always gets raves!

  307. Turkey and dumplings on the Friday after Thanksgiving! I never have understood all the hoopla about leftover turkey – turkey and dumplings is perfect comfort food after a stressful day! And no cheating with Bisquick – it’s easy and they’re never as good as when you make the dumplings yourself and cut them in the same diamond shape momma used to make,.

  308. Butter, cream, and cheese….I’ll need to hit the treadmill for sure! At least there’s some broccoli to take away the guilt:)

  309. Every Christmas eve I make cheese and pepper bread with ham salad. It wouldn’t be Christmas without it!

    Would totally love a cookbook!!!
    Will share on Facebook!

  316. Apple Pie for dessert and homemade cranberry sauce for the turkey. I would love to have one of the cookbooks.

I posted on Facebook and love the wonderful table my family puts together w/turkey and ham, homemade hot rolls, all different casseroles, pecan pie, cakes, pumpkin pie! Yummy

  325. Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday, mostly because in my family it’s a time where the extended family gets together (which is great) and eats. All. Day. Long. My favorite food thing about it is the turkey & waffles made with the leftover turkey. It’s a Pennsylvania Dutch thing & oh so delicious!!

  326. Even though I really hate turkey, my kids can’t wait for me to make that huge bird and set it on the table. They talk about it for months and usually have it gone in a few days.

  359. Our Christmas family get together (if we can) morning would not be my grandmother’s scotch scones. Only two of us know how to make them. Maybe this year we had better pass it on to a new generation.

  360. The hands of generations echoing the touch of those who are gone preparing the present day’s meal give continuity to the family and the promise of the traditions carrying on! Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings to all families and friends.

  367. BrocolliCasserole @ Thanksgiving & Christmas ! Also Strawberry-Pretzel-Whipcream Jello dessert <3

  368. My favorite Thanksgiving recipe is my Mom’s stuffing. She makes it every year. She has changed it up now and then but the spices and how she toasts the bread are the key to the stuffing! Last she she even adapted it for my nephew who has Celiac’s disease. We had a gluten-free Thanksgiving and it was wonderful.

  369. My favorite is my family recipe for decorated sugar cookies. My grandchildren are the 5th generation to make them with their grandmother.

  374. My favorite thanksgiving recipe is pecan pie. I would love to win pioneer woman’s new book! Thank you!

  375. My mom’s coffee cake for Christmas breakfast and my hearty chili for Christmas dinner!

  376. the best recipe is to have the whole house smell like roasted Turkey and to let the kids ‘paint’ the sugar cookie turkeys with egg yolk paint.. The ‘paint’ is made like this -put several separated egg yolks in small custard dishes and color with bright red, green, blue, orange for the tail feathers.. This is the BEST sugar cookie recipe ever from a German Cookie Cutter Shop in Pennsylvania.

    1 C Sugar, 1 lg egg, 2-to 2 &1/4C flour, 2 t bakpowder, 1/2 t salt 1/2 t vanilla, 1 C butter. Blend the egg with all ingredients. Chill 1 hr. and roll on floured surface to cut with cutter shapes. Bake @ 375 for 8-10 min. Cool on racks to decorate.

  377. I love Wheelicious and I have been dying to get Ree’s new book!

    Thank you!
    Stephanie

  382. My mother used to make these absolutely delicious cherry cheesecake bars when I was a child. The recipe called for chopped walnuts, cream cheese, and cherry pie filling.

  395. Kielbasa for Christmas with lots of homemade desserts. Especially sugar cookies and cupcake decked out for the holidays.
