For my next apple recipe I continue with my apple and cheddar theme in this tasty roasted apple and cheddar soup! This apple and cheddar soup could not be easier, you start out by roasting some apples to bring out even more flavour and then the apple flavours continue with the use of apple cider as part of the soups liquid base. A ham broth goes particularly nicely in this soup as the main liquid but otherwise a chicken broth or even a vegetable broth would also work. Of course the second star of the show is a nice aged white cheddar which really packs in the flavour so you do not need a lot of it. I have to say that this soup is a truly beautiful blending of sweet and savoury and I like to finish it off with a touch of grainy mustard and maple syrup to really bring the effect home!
For the bacon addicts out there, this apple and cheddar soup is amazing with a garnish of crispy bacon!

I had been planning to make a soup for dinner last night anyway, so when I found this I knew it had to happen. So delicious! Even my "If there isn't a meat in dinner I am highly suspicious of it." thinking husband loved it.

Shut your FACE. I freaking love this. I'm moving in.
Do you think I could add a little jalapeno to this to add some heat?
Averie @ Averie Cooks says
I love white cheddar. It's one of my fave cheeses to enjoy with wine. It looks like it would be amazing in this soup, too! Pinned!
Tracy Larimer says
@dave i used Ambrosia apples because my family has a sweet tooth. We also did the maple syrup drizzle optional garnish and it was awesome! I think this would also be good with Granny Smith for a tart kick.
This looks so delicious! thanks for sharing 🙂 http://www.handmadeintheheartland.com
Cate @ Chez CateyLou says
I love the flavor of apples and cheddar together! This soup sounds amazing and looks so delicious!
Dave: I like a tart apple like a granny smith for this soup but sweeter ones like honey crisp would also work!
Danielle: I am glad that you and your husband enjoyed it!
Melissa: Yes you could add some jalapenos for heat or add some red pepper flakes along with the garlic or some cayenne would also work.
Did you peel the apples?
Ash: Yes the apples are peeled and cored. Recipe updated!
Kevin, You are amazing!!! Thank you for this website!!!
Would it work without the cheese?
Karen I Clark says

Odette Godin says
Can this soup be made in advance and reheated before serving?
Odette Godin: Yes it can! Enjoy!
I thought to give this a try today since it’s pouring out and I’m stuck home. (i have a window cleaning business). Anyways, i just need to say that this turned out awesome. I actually ran to the store for the ingredients and forgot to add bacon to my list.. Even so this is amazing soup and perfect for a cool dreary rainy day.. Thanks.
BTW: Am enjoying your site immensely.
