    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This is a very easy soup to make. A very nice creamy type soup. Preferably served hot with crackers or a nice home made style bread or a nice fresh sourdough bread.

      Even though I substituted 1% milk for the half & half, this soup was delicious! I made no other changes & served it hot with crusty Italian rolls for dunking. Thanx Uncle Bill!
