    Made this twice it was very good. We felt t needed more cheese. We used a guiness black lager. Served with homemade croutons. We added more cheese for flavor and to thicken.

    Amazing soup. So rich and thick! I did not use celery, but added new white potatoes (cooked them first and cut up into smll pieces) I used Coors light beer. I added more worchester sauce and extra dry mustard and a bit of hot pepper juice (I didn't have tabasco). Reviews said that this soup was a bit watery, so I added about 5c broth, rather than 6. Soup turned out lovely and thick and delicious.

    I liked this quite well. i did not use celery, so added more carrots and celery. This was a little thin for me and I think I might reduce the amount of stock or add some potato or other veggie next time. I used O'Doul's, a nonalcoholic beer, which added a very nice flavor to the soup.

    The flavour of this is wonderful! Personally, I don't think I would like potatoes in it. I found the balance of flavours to be just right. I used low fat medium cheddar and a local ale for the beer. Made exactly as directed and I wouldn't change a thing! Made for Gimme 5 tag. Thanks seesko! :)

    Delicious - wish I had brought the leftovers for lunch today! Couple of changes I made we really liked: added two boiling potatoes (skin on), added a few dashes on onion powder, didn't have any dry mustard so used spicy brown mustard (2 tsps?) and extra Tabasco. We loved it!


I am the mother of two beautiful boys. I love to bake and cook which has helped me to become very overweight. I have lost 50 pounds this past year and have been learning to cook "lighter". We still enjoy many of the same dishes we used to. However, I have learned portion control and how to make suttle changes to my recipes that don't affect the flavor.
