This came from a cookbook called Riverside Cup of Tea. The recipes were prepared at a lovely restaurant which has since changed owners. My daughter worked as a waitress and my son worked in the kitchen at the restaurant under a very special lady who owned the restaurant and who taught her employees much about working in a restaurant with Christian values. We enjoy serving this at dinner parties as an appetizer and it is always enjoyed by all.

Loved it!!! It is very simple and so delicious, a definite keeper! I used skim milk, as that was all I had available and I added shredded cheese to top and served with warm rolls. thank you for sharing!

This is a GREAT alternative to canned soup and you would never believe how easy it is. It is delicious and tastes "home-made" . I am so glad I found this. Thanks so much for sharing, Rosemere.
