    This was an easy and delicious soup. I followed the recipe and added celery salt instead of regular salt. My husband loved it.

    Delicious! I wasn't sure about the nutmeg, but it was good in it! I used more mushrooms and thickened it with a little flour/water mixture. Hubby loved it!

    This is delicious and very easy to make ! After having this, it's hard to ever eat the canned soup again.
