In a crock pot combine broccoli, carrots, onion, chicken stock and seasonings. Cook on low for 3.5 hours.
Stir in the Greenridge chicken sausage and cook in the crock pot another 15-20 minutes on high.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Gradually whisk in the flour. Take about 1 cup of liquid from the crock pot and gradually whisk that into the flour mixture on low heat.
Slowly whisk in the half and half. Next gradually whisk in the cheese until it’s melted. Add the cheese sauce to the crock pot and store until combined.
