READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MamaJ

This recipe came from TOH and has become a family favorite. My oldest son loves this even though he says he doesn't like corned beef. Give this one a try--it's great comfort food.

This soup was great. I also added some diced red potatoes and about a tablespoon or so of hot horseradish which gave it a slight kick.
I had rye bread left over so i made my own croutons. All you need to do is cut the bread into crouton size, and mix thoroughly with olive oil, salt, and pepper and put in a 275 degree oven in a single layer. Mix/flip after 10 minutes and put in for another 10 minutes then check them ever minute or two after that till they are crisp.
