    Bren in LR's Note:

    This was found years ago in Bon Appetite when a reader requested the recipe for this soup made at Billie's Boathouse in Saugatuck, Michigan. It was called Potage a la Russe. I made it and it became my DH's favorite. I found the ingredient list intriguing and was pleasantly surprised with the result.
