I got this recipe 32 years ago from a former supervisor, Sheryl Petricek at a Racine dental lab. She brought soup to share with everyone at our work table and it was a huge hit! This is one of my all time favorites and could almost eat the whole pot of soup myself! It is absolutely delicious! :P It's also family tested and approved!!!
