Love this soup. I have doubled or tripled the mushrooms, added sausage or chopped chicken and used heavy cream. I make it at least twice to three times a month.

I have made this upwards of 20 times for my family. If they see mushrooms on sale they beg me to make this soup. I should note that my says doesnt like mushrooms and my wife doesnt like mushroom soup. They both still ask me to make this every other week.

This soup is absolutely delicious! Fir some reason I always thought mushroom soup was hard to make...well I couldn't have been more wrong. Simple and the results are CROWD PLEASING! I made it for a potluck and x4'd the recipie. I also substituted corn starch for the flour..used less and my gluten free friends were also able to enjoy.

I just made this soup - love it ! First time making a creamed soup - but it was easy - I did cheat a little - used table cream and more than called for as I wanted to use it up before Christmas.. Will definitely make this again.

This soup is amazing!! I used it to make green bean casserole and I will never buy canned cream of mushroom soup again. I'm going to try making cream of chicken soup next. I never realized what a difference the homemade version would be. Thanks so much for the killer recipy.

I just made this according to the recipe, was worried the onion would be too strong or that there would be too earthy of a flavor with the mushrooms. Boy was I wrong! It was delicious and perfect. It was like a thick gravy. I'm going to serve it over biscuits next time. Yummy!

we do not buy any store bought soup anymore, this is very easy to make and it is so good. i do add a bot of garlic powder and skip the onions and it turns out so good.
