Top Review by Parsley

Awesome cheese soup! It's pretty easy and inexpensive to make, too. I opted for sharp cheddar and I thought it was perfect. I used fat free half and half but it was still rich in texture. I served this to my kiddos with goldfish crackers and parsley on top. Thanx for a great cheese soup recipe!
