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

"Next time I'm using half the cream and more cheese. Also, I'll try adding extra garlic!!"

"I thought this was really good, but I did omit the bacon and substituted olive oil for the bacon grease. The subtle smokiness of smoked Gouda really complemented the pumpkin flavor."

"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!"

"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."

"Made this for Thanksgiving. Used Grocery store Smoked processed Gouda the only available where we were in Maine. Made again using a local Boston cheese shop Gouda. Invest in good smoked Gouda, well worth it. Served with apples as garnish."
