I’ve always enjoyed cooking and recently created this rich soup. It’s always a hit. You can also garnish it with chopped green onion tops or shredded Swiss cheese. For a creamier, smoother consistency, try pouring the soup through a strainer. —Nathan Mercer Inman, South Carolina

"I just made this after I got home from work. The prepping takes the most of the time to prepare this, but it is soo worth it. I used Oscar Mayer Maple Bacon, generic cream, but name-brand chicken broth. I did not have corn starch, so I subbed in some all purpose flour. It became thick and creamy, and yummy. I usually say that the best mushroom soup I have ever eaten was at a New England restaurant called Not Your Average Joes. Now I say, this recipe is even better. - C Hall, Millville, MA"

"I've made this soup many times and it is always a hit. I did make a few changes to the original recipe though. I used half and half instead of heavy cream, believe me it's still very rich. I also added about 4 oz. of fresh chopped spinach near the end of cooking , just enough to wilt it. Yummy!"

"We really liked this savoury mushroom dish. It has such a nice smell!

You may also garnish it with some canned green pease. Thanks!"
