I love the smell of this rich, cheesy soup as it bubbles on the stove. The Gouda cheese adds a delightful smokiness that just says autumn to me.—Kerry Dingwall, Ponte Vedra, Florida

This has been past of our Thanksgiving tradition for 3 years now. The family loves it!

MY REVIEW

I too added a little something as there was not quite enough flavor. 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice. It was great.

I wish I'd had the smoked gouda. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars. I had gorgonzola and liquid smoke. It's just not the same but still rich and creamy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2012

Delicious! I was looking for a "snooty soup" to bring to a party. It was a huge hit. Several asked for the recipe. I followed it pretty closely.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2012

It had too much of a pumpkin flavor for me. I added more chicken broth and liked it better.
