"A recipe Mom has used since I can remember. A special treat at Thanksgiving. Always a hit! For better flavor simmer for hours, adding cream during last hour or so. May also may be made the day before. Do not add cream until ready to reheat to serve."

Wonderfull!! I made this with a couple of changes, I used lite margerine and I used 1% milk only, didn't add creme at end, also could not find celery flakes so I used 1 tea of finely chopped celery, I also used red onion as that was what I had, and simmered soup for about 1/2 hr, then cooled and reheated it later for dinner. This was yummy and I think fairly light, I had a couple friends for dinner and they loved it. I will make this again, thanks


Five stars with the following changes. Add a good sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning. When you add in the milk and chicken broth, use a soup hand blender to blend. Don't just cook 10 min. The onions will not be soft. I used two 8-oz packages Trans Ocean Lobster Classic Chunk Style Lobster. This is a fantastic imitation lobster (do NOT use Louis Kemp brand...ick). Let simmer on low one hour stirring occasionally. Cool then run through a blender. Reheat and add the cream. WONDERBAR!


EXCELLENT! I did, however make some changes. I used can lobster as I could not bear to use fresh lobster in a soup unless it was left over, which never happens at our house. I added worcestershire sauce, sherry, Old Bay, white pepper and paprika. I substituted heavy cream for the light cream. My only wish is that I had written down the amounts. I just did it to taste, and it was "knock your socks off" good! Thank you Dorothy for such an EXCELLENT recipe.
