    Galley Wench's Note:

    When your recipe calls for a can of condensed soup, just make your own! This makes the equivalent of one can of condensed soup (10.5 ounces). Note the suggested variations that can be made to this recipe.

      This worked great! I was craving tuna casserole and I realized I didn't have any cream of (anything) soup. I actually preferred this to the canned stuff! Looks like Campbell's has lost a customer! Thanks for posting!

      I have been making this for my family at least monthly, but I never called it cream soup, I called it 'chicken gravy!'

      I love that we are going back to the original instead of trying to make a 'quick and easy' substitute, which is what all those '50's era recipes calling for 'Cream of ____ Soup' were doing.
