This is a fine meal all by itself, or you can serve it with your favorite breads. I will toss some croutons in sometimes to make it a little bit more filling if it’s what I’m having for a lunch or dinner. When guests come over and I entertain with this dish, they think that I’m some sort of professional cook. It’s okay, I’ll let them keep thinking that. I really is so easy, anyone can do it!

Fill up your bread bowl with this tasty soup and you won’t be sorry you did.
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 small onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
½ teaspoon celery seeds
2 small rolls
⅓ cup Gold Medal flour
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Frank’s Red hot sauce
4 cups low sodium Swanson chicken broth
5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
5 ounces provolone cheese, shredded
1 pound top round steak, thinly sliced (see note below)
1 green pepper, sliced
1⅓ cups provolone for topping (optional)
Cut rolls into cubes and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon garlic powder and salt/pepper to taste. Heat in a frying pan over medium heat until browned and crispy. Set aside.
In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add carrots, onions and celery seed. Cook just until the onion is softened. Add flour and let cook an additional 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add 4 cups of chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Let simmer until onions and carrots are very soft (about 15 minutes).
Using a blender or hand blender, puree the soup until creamy. (Remember do not seal hot soup in a blender). Return it to the heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 5oz of each cheese. Stir until melted.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add beef & green peppers and cook until browned. This will only take a couple of minutes.
Place equal amounts of beef in each bowl. Add about ⅓ cup of bread cubes and top with hot soup. Sprinkle with topping cheese and broil on high for 4 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly.

Quick Tip: Gruyere cheese is really tasty in place of the provolone.
