This was easy to make and very good. You can save yourself a step by not heating the milk in a different pan. I just added the milk a cup or 2 at a time, wisking it as I went.

This was good and very rich. It had a nice thick chowdery consistency too.

Perfect in every respect! Love this soup-I have made this exact recipe many times from TOH. I used leftover baked potatoes for this and it worked fine. Thanks for sharing, Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
