This recipe was given to me by a coworker over twenty years ago. It quickly became a family favorite. The card was misplaced when we moved and I was upset. DH just found the card yesterday in a folder and I am thrilled to share it with you. This is one of the few "cream of" recipes we enjoy, although I prefer making my own soup (Cream of Carrot Soup works well). The hard-boiled eggs really make this special. Adding a can of your favorite veggie, drained, makes this a one dish meal. Thanks Rheta, I hope your life has been wonderful.
