    Karin...'s Note:

    This is such a delicious soup! It has a lovely consistency and loved by all who I have served it to. This is a real winner! People who have never had it before can't seem to guess whats in it!! Where this recipe calls for Chicken Stock, I use Campbell's Real Stock, and add water. It's so much easier than having to make your own! I usually use 1/2 Chicken and 1/2 Vegetable Stock. If making in advance leave out the beaten egg yolks and scalded cream and add just before re-heating and serving. For the purpose of freezing -leave the beaten egg yolks and scalded cream out until thawed and re-heated.

      Karin, this was delicious. My hubby learned about lettuce soup from a neighbor and just had to try it. We took it to a friend's as part of a wonderful Easter dinner and everyone loved it.
