One of my mom's favorites and mine as well. I add even more cheese as there is no such thing as too much cheese.

Lynn says it best: "There is no such thing as too much cheese!" This soup brings together those old pals Swiss cheese and ham, and blends them into a wonderfully creamy bowl of broccoli goodness. Warms you through and through. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
