This is a wonderful recipe - my husband just loved it! I often make my own chicken broth, so this is a great use for quantities of chicken broth. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I left out the nutmeg, and it was still the best. I added chopped bacon to it to serve and it was really great.

Absolutely DELICIOUS!
Did not puree and used minced garlic in place of fresh because that's all I had on hand.
Can't wait to make it again!
