This has been my husband's favorite soup our whole 30-year married life. He enjoys taking a thermos of this to work during the winter. It's delicious served with warm biscuits and butter. —Janet Chase, Berrien Sprgs, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2013

The soup was very watery and really had no flavor at all. I even tried adding more salt and some white pepper to give it a boost.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 23, 2012

This was pretty good. I felt like it needed more salt and perhaps some other seasoning to jazz it up a bit. Maybe Italian Seasoning or shredded cheddar on top?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 10, 2012

I have made this twice now and plan to make it again soon! My husband absolutely loved it and requested the second batch before the first was finished!
