This is wonderful, I'm thinking that it will be on mt Thanksgiving table this year. I'm out of nutmeg atm so used allspice in it's place. I was doing wee taste tests as it was made and when everything except the pepper was in I was a bit concerned because it was seriously lacking something. I added some white pepper and like magic the flavor was fully rounded and had me making that mmmmmm sound. Don't skip the pepper! It's very quick to make and I used fat free evaporated milk. For me, this is a keeper.
Great, easy recipe. Delicious fall dinner. I, too, felt it benefited from a little extra pepper to bring out the flavor. I used low sodium chicken broth, and added another 1/4 tsp of salt.
Absolutely my favorite fall soup. I made it last year around this time and I'm so excited to make it again. Delish!
