Cheddar, Swiss and Beer Soup

Servings: 12


2 cups diced onion
2 tablespoons chopped garlic

3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Wisconsin Aged Swiss cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions:

Sauté the onion and garlic in butter until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the flour; cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the milk. Add the bay leaves; cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes. Stir in the cheese gradually; cook just until the cheese melts. Remove from the heat. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg; remove the bay leaves. Stir in the beer.
