Slow Cooker Cream of Mushroom Soup

Slow Cooker Cream of Mushroom Soup
     I love making soups in my slow cooker, especially on freezing cold days like we’ve been having. This was the first time trying my hand at homemade mushroom soup. I’ve made the kind out of the can for years, but after having this it’s like comparing apples to brussel sprouts. Seriously, this soup is fantastic. Sauteing the mushrooms in butter really brings out the flavor. I used pre-sliced large white button mushrooms, but next time I will look for smaller ones.

  1. This is my favorite kind of soup, but I don’t “do” cream soups well.  This one looks like something I’ll definately be able to master.  Thanks!!
