BBQ Burn Out Monday #4 - Sweet Nick's

SweetNicks was supposed to be our guest today on Barbecue Burn Out Monday, but unfortunately, she had a gall bladder operation over the weekend which took her out of commission. She's home now and recovering nicely as her husband cooks dinner AND cleans the kitchen afterwards. What a nice guy. I don't mind cooking, but I usually leave the cleaning to someone else!

Please take a moment and say a prayer or send some good thoughts to my friend, SweetNicks for a speedy recovery. SweetNicks has a special place in my heart. When my wife was burned making dinner last year, SweetNicks led the charge for prayers over the internet for her. I hope I can return the favor.
Welcome to BBQ Burn Out Monday #4 - SweetNicks. Through the magic of the internet and a little cut and paste, SweetNicks is with us in spirit. I hope she doesn't mind, but I went back over her blog and took a recipe at random and posted it here. I know that she'll be OK with it. SweetNick has NEVER missed a day blogging. Even while she was in the hospital, her (the) mother, the husband and even the neighbor, kept her blog going. Take it away SweetNicks

Sweetnicks Beer and Cheddar Soup

4 starter servings

2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 large onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, finely chopped
1/4 cup all purpose flour
12 oz. beer
2 cups beef broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2-1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Melt the margarine in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion and carrots in margarine, stirring occasionally, until tender. Add flour and stir to coat vegetables. Gradually stir in beer, broth and salt. Heat to boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in sour cream and cheese; continue stirring until cheese is melted. Serve.

Sweetnicks Note: One of our favorite tummy-warming soups. Great for chilly nights, and easy meal for busy weeknights.

Hopefully, SweetNicks will be back up to speed soon and willing to resume posting on BBQ Burn Out Mondays. Feel better friend!

Tomorrow, I'll update you folks on Grillin on the Bay -- NYC's first BBQ contest. If you are interested in competing or judging, please send an email to Grillin On The Bay. Spaces are filling up fast!

Think I might make this this weekend. Sounds like something nice to keep warm during a long cook. Thanks for sharing, Robert and Sweetnicks. Hope you're feeling better right quick.

Looks good, its very similar to a beer, sausage and cheddar cheese soup. I first sauté some spicy Italian sausage whole to brown it. take it out… do most of your steps, except I use extra beer, and when heating up the flour I add some spices… cumin, red pepper, lots of fresh garlic. Then before adding the cheese, I cut up the sausages and add it back, then add the cheese (adding the sausage later makes sure it doesn’t over cook, dry out, and still keeps all its flavor. You should try it!
I haven’t added sour cream before. That’s a good idea. Going to use that next time
