    For having only a few ingredients this is very good soup. Do be patient and get that golden brown color on the flour and butter. We use skim milk and was worried about the soup being on the thin side but it worked out for us. Did use the gouda cheese and didnt need to add much salt but did give a good couple dashes of pepper. If I had fresh nutmeg to grate on top of the soup it would have been a nice flavor to add. Made and reviewed for Susie's World Tour 2019 - Cuba.
