Mushroom Soup

In the winter we usually eat soup on Saturday and Sunday for lunch.  If you calculate that, it means that I make approximately 40 batches of soup each winter.  One of my favorite recipes is my Mom's mushroom soup.  She also makes many pots of soup each year, so if she has a good recipe, it is sure to join my roster.

Mushroom Soup

  • 3 cups fresh mushrooms (1 cup finely chopped, 2 cups sliced)
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 to 1/3 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • paprika
1.  Saute onions and mushrooms in butter until mushrooms have lost their liquid and it has reabsorbed.
2.  Add flour, salt and poultry seasoning.
3.  Gradually add in chicken broth, and then milk.
4.  Stir until thickened and bubbling.
5.  Garnish with paprika (or cheddar penguins whatever you prefer!).
