I love mushrooms...any way they are prepared. I love mushroom soup...canned even! So, since I have a 99cent store, produce there is beautiful and I tend to "over" indulge, especially beautiful 99cent mushrooms. Finding myself in a delimma of too many and having the rest of ingredients, this was what I came up with. It's a favorite of ours. Hope yours too. (Can also be frozen)

How to Make My Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash mushrooms carefully (they are delicate). If you use sliced, just rinse thoroughly, otherwise, remove and save stems. Pat mushrooms dry with paper towel. Slice mushroom tops and stems. Chop onion.
  2. Melt butter (depending on amount you are making will determine pan you use). Add onion and simmer until translucent not brown. Add mushroom slices and stems. Mushrooms will add liquid and will simmer nicely. Add butter as needed, or to taste. This step takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes.
  3. After mushroom mixture is cooked, add cream and 1/2 & 1/2. If this seems to "rich" for you, use, use milk for half the 1/2 & 1/2. Do not allow to boil.
  4. If you want a thicker soup, use a mixture of milk and flour to thicken.

    Serve with warm, buttered French bread. If you do not have the bread, you can always use crackers.

    Enjoy!
