MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2010

I completely cut the salt from the recipe - it doesn't need any with the bacon, cheese and bouillon added. And I added garlic. Super yummy!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2010

I used fat free half and half in place of the whipping cream and 2% milk . It was still good.
