Picky Kid Approved Cheddar Broccoli Soup and Fish Rollups

Updated on May 8, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Fish Rollups and Cheddar Broccoli Soup

My 2 year old son is a fussy eater. He does, however, like most finger foods and soups. His favorite soup is broccoli cheddar. I tried something new with the fish sticks and he actually liked them. I try to use as many organic ingredients as possible to make it even healthier. My husband and I became fans of this dish as well. Enjoy!!


Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour 5 min
Yields: serves 4-6


  • 1 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, unroll and cut pieces in half to get 16 triangular pieces
  • 16 Frozen Fish Sticks
  • 8 Slices of American Cheese, cut diagonally to have 16 triangles
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Sofrito
  • 1/4 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • Salt as desired, I use 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper as desired, I use 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 2 cups Coarsley chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup Corn, (can substitute 1/2 cup of Julienned carrots)
  • 8 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Roll out the crescent rolls and cut in halves to get 16 pieces. Cut the cheese slices so that you have 16 pieces. Place a piece of American cheese on it then a fish stick and roll it up. Continue until you finish 16 roll ups. Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes.
  2. In a soup pan melt butter and add chicken broth. Next add Sofrito (can substitute 1 tbsp of finely chopped onion, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tsp chopped fresh cilantro, and 1 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper). Whisk in flour. Add milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg. Simmer for 20 min.
  3. Add chopped broccoli and corn(or carrots). Next, add cheese and stir constantly for 20 min. Take off heat and let it cool down for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!!

      With a 3 month old newborn now in our home, he isn't quite at this stage yet....but, I'll have to add these to my arsenal of things to make him when he gets to a more appropriate age. Thanks for the great hub!
