really yummy. Added quite a few dashes of Franks Hot Sauce and it took the already delicious soup to another level of flavor. !

EXCELLENT recipe! I doubled the recipe, added about one cup chopped celery and also carrots, substituted rosemary and some parsley for thyme and used Sargento Chef Blends 4 State Cheddar Cheese for the fontina. So good this is not only a "keeper" recipe, but I emailed it to several friends. Hot French Baguette and tomato slices sprinkled with celery salt hit the spot on a 20 degree winter day. Thank you so very much!Carol Herman in Milwaukee, WI
