One of my favorite soups to make. Absolutely delicious and so incredibly easy! I usually use Jennie-O Turkey Ham and whatever cheese I have on hand. I have never been disappointed

I added more cheese - shredded Mac n cheese blend - everyone raved about this thick dish!

I made this with left over ham from Christmas. It was a hit especially with my oldest! Next time I will make more soup base and add more ham.

Very easy and absolutely DELICIOUS!

I made this recipe last night; it was very tasty and so easy! I didn't have any Dijon Mustard, so I used 1 tsp of ground mustard, added it with the flour.

I have made this recipe so many times that I don't remember when I first tried it. No one I have served this to has ever been disappointed and it's constantly requested by friends and family. This is the best comfort food ever and great for a chilly autumn meal anytime day or night.

Made a double batch for 3 people. Grandson was eating all evening. Easy to make and no complaints. Very good.

I was shocked at just HOW good it really was. I added frozen peas & carrots into the bowls to help cool the soup, and then of course to get veggies in. That was yum too! This was really easy to make, and my daughter just loved it. Its going into the soup rotation.

I'm not very good at mac & cheese but this turned out for me. Very tasty with the extra kick of the mustard. But it's a soup so it will live up to it's name!

I made this for my husband and son (without the Dijon mustard) the first time with skim milk and low-fat colby jack cheese. The second time I used whole milk and regular american cheese. Three days later I used the whole milk and regular cheese receipe for a ladies group. Each time, it has been a rousing success. I have luncheon guests again tomorrow and will be serving it again. So far, I have yet to have any leftovers.

My kids love it!!

Very easy and quick fix for the grandchildren who could live on mac and cheese! Faster than making several grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for 5 and everyone can serve themselves. Thanks so much.
