We use to have this all the time at a favorite restaurant till I made my own up. YUM! I usually double this for when we are having a large group to visit.

This was an excellent soup. I used 1 quart of whole milk and 1 quart half and half and it was very, very creamy. Got lots of YUMS.....

Very good and easy. This was thick and rich, perfect for a cold, rainy fall evening.
