Introduction

This is one of those "comfort food" type of soups. Serve when it's really chilly outside to warm you to the bone; or let it cool to room temperature & serve it as a starter in the summer time to wet appetites!This soup can be made ahead up to the point of adding the cheese and onion. Reheat the soup very slowly and gently. Be careful that it does not boil. Then add the cheese. Of course if there is any leftover it reheats beautifully.
