Broccoli Cheddar Soup

It's officially FREEZING in NY so I've ben craving soup. My daughter loves Panera's Broccoli Cheddar bread bowl so I made this tonight since I had most of the ingredients on hand.

Cook 1/4 cup flour in 1/4 butter for about 5 minutes.
Add 2 cups half and half and 2 cups chicken broth. Cook on low for about 25 minutes

Add fresh broccoli or thawed frozen broccoli. Cook 6-8 minutes

Puree in blender or food processor. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Add grated cheddar cheese (I used white) and season to taste. Pour into serving bowls, top with shredded cheese (preferably a contrasting color. I used yellow). Lastly, top with croutons.
