Everyone raved about this soup at Deer Camp - men AND women! Very satisfying!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2014

This was a good recipe because my family liked it. I guess I didnt care for it too much because it was so thick! It almost has too much cheese in it (is there such a thing?) So I would suggest maybe making it with extra beef broth, or bouillon cubes and water and topping it with cheese. For my personal tastes anyway...

MY REVIEW

I have made this recipe for years now. I got this recipe from the original magazine it came out in 2010. My whole family loves it. Even our daughter since she was old enough to eat it has ate every bite. We do leave the mushrooms out since I am not a big fan. It's the first thing we make once it gets cold!
