This was good but for us it had too much thyme in it. Next time I would cut the thyme in half. I also added some cheddar to the soup to add more thickness and flavor.

This is a good soup that (in my opinion) needs to be just a bit richer. I added about 1 1/2 tbsp of butter and a 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar to get it how I liked it. The whole family really enjoyed it, and I'll definitely be making it again with those substitutions. It's a great way to use up leftovers. Thanks!

This soup is wonderful. It freezes beautifully (left out the milk until serving day). My children even asked for seconds. Very flavorful!
