    CharJoyLet's Note:

    This was created on one of those nights when I wasn't awfully hungry, but had to cook dinner anyway. Since I was pretty unmotivated to start with, I was very surprised that this came out as well as it did. I tend to cook by sight and taste so these measurements are my best guesstimates. See what you think!

      This is good but a bit too soupy for us. Next time I think I'll use less milk and only one can of soup. Thanks for sharing!

      This was so simple to make. I did change the following: didn't have green onions, so subbed 2 shalots and I placed it in the crockpot on low for 6 hours. Turned out very well. My husband had 2 helpings. Always a sign of a keeper.:)

      Very good recipe. I didn't have the broccoli cheese soup on hand, but had all the makings for homemade, so that worked just fine with this recipe. Another great comfort food!!!!!
