Winter Storm Milo - Update

Since today's massive snowfall has us all trapped in our homes, it is time to turn to survival mode. Gather the ingredients the Headless Snow Team told you to procure yesterday. We are going to make a very easy cheese soup recipe.
Wisconsin Cheddar Beer Soup

In a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat, melt 1/4 cup of butter. Stir in 1/4 cup of flour until smooth; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

Stir in 2-1/2 cup of milk, 1 cup of beer, 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce, 1-1/2 tsp dry mustard, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese until melted.

If desired, cut 1/4 pound of
smoked sausage in small cubes, and brown sausage in a skillet over medium heat. Cooked sausage may be stirred into soup or used to individually top bowls. Croƻtons may also served with this soup.
Enjoy this soup to warm up after shoveling all of this snow.
