I do not like mushrooms but we keep getting them in our weekly CSA and I am sick of them going to waste. I found this recipe thinking, if I don't like it my husband will surely eat it all for dinner and leftovers. I loved this recipe. Tastes as good or better than any cheese soup recipe I have ever had. I sliced the shiitakes really thin. I used a whole yellow onion and threw in half a bunch of sliced swiss chard (w/ stems) as I had some to use up. I omitted the sage due to a lack of it and used 2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of milk in lieu of the beef broth. Prior to adding the liquids, I added three tablespoons of flour and browned everything together. I increased the amount of cheese to adjust for the increase in onion, addition of swiss chard. I served it in bowls topped with chopped green onion. Fabulous!

I used this recipe and halved it all except the sage (cause I love sage) and the bacon (cause seriously have you ever heard anyone say "it would have been good if it weren't for all that pesky bacon"?) It is supposta be a soup but I just added a bit of flour and cornstarch to thicken it up then served it over egg noodles, though rice would have been good too. YUM!!!!

The flavor is spectacular. I would have done the cheddar differently. It clumped together and fell to the bottom. The next time, I will make a white sauce with butter and flour cooked, milk added then cheddar. Add that to the soup.
