Use this base for any creamy soup recipe. Add steamed broccoli and processed cheese; chunks of baked potato with processed cheese, bacon and chives; pureed tomatoes for a bisque; chopped and steamed leeks; cooked asparagus - the list is endless.
this soup was delicious and easy. it came out a little thick and salty so i added two more cups of milk and a cup of water. i also added potatoes, celery, and onions into it. but you should boil the veges first before putting them in. i didn't know so i just stuck in raw veges so i had to constantly stir while it softened up. i will definitely make it again. - 22 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great for when you don't have that can of soup on hand. Plus I feel like I'm not getting all those artificial ingredients, preservatives, etc. in the can. - 23 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for a group event and it was loved by all. I added the baked potatoes and bacon. I found I needed a lot more milk for a less thick soup. I used 1% milk and everyone still thought it was made with cream. - 24 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
