MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2010

"This is really good. I need to make my dishes gluten-free now, so I used about 2 tbsp of cornstarch instead of the flour. I mix it in with the cold milk and butter and bring to a boil until it thickens. The Swiss cheese thickens the soup, too. Good topped with more Swiss or cheddar cheese. My kids like to eat this with Goldfish crackers. :) I usually add a potato or two depending on the size."
