This recipe turned out very good for me! I thought it needed just a little more flavor so I added a little Thyme to it. Yummy!

This was absolutely awesome. I made it last night for supper. We loved it. I doubled the water and bouillon granules but kept the milk, butter and flour the same. It thickened up nicely. I also added more potatoes and broccoli. Thank you for posting such a delicious recipe.

Excellent soup recipe!!! I substituted chicken for the ham and added extra cheese...it got rave reviews. This is a good soup for bread bowls: it's thick enough and doesn't run into the bread. Thanks!
