Top Review by Erik P.

Wow! I followed the recipe as close as I could, but I have a small crockpot, so I had to transfer half to a pot on the stove as well. I also couldn't fit an onion in, but I had HUGE onions,so, it didn't make too much difference. I also probably added a little more broth and cream, due to portion sizes I bought not adding up exactly to the recipe. It made it a little more watery than I liked, but I'm sure next time I make it (soon!) I'll be able to ccounteract that. It tastes great and it made so much. I like crumbling saltines into all my soups so that helped any wateriness. I can't get enough of this. Can't wait to try it again, now that I know what to expect.
