This is my mom's recipe for this soup, I eat it without the bread beacuse it grosses me out. This is so simple to make.

This is a really easy and delicious soup. Of course, I can't leave a recipe alone and had to make a few changes, but I used this recipe as the base and don't feel that my changes have really altered the recipe. First, I used 2 mashed cloves of garlic instead of the garlic salt. As I don't combine meat with dairy for religious reasons, I also used a vegetable broth instead of beef broth. Aside from that, I stayed true to the rest of the recipe. My kids had them with breadcrumbs, I had them without. Dornette #3, who is a soup maven, had two bowls of this stuff on Friday night. Dornette #1, a newbie vegetarian who usually doesn't eat soup, pronounced this delicious and took the recipe back with her to make at home. Leanne, this is my newest favorite soup, it's so easy to make, and also freezes beautifully (freeze before adding the cheese and bread crumbs). Thanks so much!
