Ingredients

Directions

Brown the bacon in the bottom of a pot, when done remove and drain on paper towel. Add the chopped onion to the drippings, letting them brown slightly. Add the celery, potatoes, carrots and broccoli; sprinkle with dill, salt and pepper and pour the water over to cover the mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in the milk and just before the soup reaches the boiling point, stir in the cheese; continue simmering until it's melted. Serve with crumbled bacon on top accompanied by rye bread and butter. Beer goes very well with this.
