How to make Cream of Mushroom Soup

With the hectic lifestyle we live these days food has sometimes become a matter of convenience but making your own Cream of Mushroom Soup is a great way to ensure that only the best ingredients are used and while it’s savory to eat the most common use around our house is as a base in many casseroles and sauces.

This particular recipe is from Taste of Home and I’ve found it to be a very reliable one that has yet to fail us. You can adjust this to fit your tastes and if you’re making this as a true soup add some additional milk to the recipe and adjust the cooking time to prevent the soup from getting too thick.

  1. I like how simple this is with just a few ingredients. I found 2 mushroom recipes this week and now I will have to decide which to use.

  2. This is a little different than the recipe I use, but oh, it looks so good! I bet the cream cheese in it is just divine!
