"Have made this several times before and finally getting around to rating!

It's a super simple, inexpensive and comforting soup! I just increase the onion a little and just perfect every time. We enjoy a nice salad and warm bread and that just rounds it out!
Thank you so much for such a terrific recipe!"

"Well, I missed this the first time I looked through these recipes....found one very similar, and rated it instead. Now I see this one.....it deserves five stars, and yes, I'll make it again! (even though I didn't make the other one, I'll bet it's a five star recipe too......almost exactly like this one!)"

"I have been making this recipe for since I discovered it in my TOH Annual Recipes that year...to make fewer calories AND Lactose free, I use turkey or chicken sausage, LactAid milk, and either a smidge of flour or cornstarch to thicken it. You can skip the creamed corn in favor of extra plain corn too. I sometimes change up on basil, depending on the kind of sausage."
