Carolyn Zimmerman of Fairbury, Illinois lets the earthy mushroom flavor shine in this rich and hearty soup. It’ll have you arguing over who gets the last serving!

- 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 6 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in water; set aside. In a small saucepan, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour.

"Really good and so easy. I used less butter, more onions and only 4 oz cream cheese because that's what I had."
