    I do believe you nailed this recipe! I am always amazed by your creativeness. Thank you for all the wonderful dinner ideas. I am making this one tonight!

    How many servings does this make? Can you recommend a cheese to use instead of swiss? My husband will not eat anything with swiss cheese in it, but this sounds amazing and I really want to make it.

    • Melissa

      I can’t answer your question about servings since I haven’t made it yet, but substitutions for swiss could be Emmenthaler, Gruyere, or Jarlsberg.

    Made this soup yesterday and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. I’m not that big a swiss cheese fan but, wow, this is good! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

      Where you able to find grated swiss? I had to buy from the delli and will just grate it, but I didn’t want to spend $8 on cheese to get 2 cups, so I got about half a pound and will just hope it’s enough once I grate it.

        kraft has a grated swiss cheese or you can get cheese in blocks in the cheese department of most grocery stores which would be cheaper than $8 at the deli

    How many servings is this? I want to make this for my friends but I need to know the serving size and how to increase it if needed?

  5. Oooops. I hit “post comment” before I was ready. I made this soup last night. Superb! I added garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and sea salt. I didn’t want to open a carton of chicken stock, so I used a Tablespoon of French onion soup. I also didn’t have any cubed ham, so I used sliced deli ham I had in the fridge. Thanks for sharing!

    I am trying to cut back on some fat/calories a little bit. Could I replace most of the half n half and milk with chicken stock (say 3-4 cups), use fat free cream cheese and then finish with, say….a 1/2 cup of cream?

  7. Sadie

    How many is this supposed to serve? I didn’t see where it says. I am thinking of making this for a Soup Swap at a friends house for 9 people and we need a quart each. I’m not sure if I should take the recipe x 3 or 4. Thanks.

    Delicious! We just made this tonight and it was yummy. A comfort food….obviously. Not low-fat, haha :) We added some diced sauteed onions as well as a can of peas at the same time we added the meat, just to give it a little more substance. We also added a handful of shredded cheddar to give it a little sharper flavor and some more color. I do love the flavor of the swiss in there though! We didn’t want to take the time to grate swiss, so we just chopped the block into cubes…it still melted fine.
