Yesterday, at our church we had a “Souper Bowl” Sunday. You know…. cause it was the “Super Bowl”…. ok well really, that’s not why we had it, but it was called the “Souper Bowl”. We had a few people from church bring crock pots full of soup and for $3.00 you could get a bowl of soup, a sandwich and a dessert.

What to do:
In a large pot, bring chicken broth to a boil.
Add the chopped mushrooms and onion salt. Turn down to a simmer. Cover and Simmer for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Once the mushrooms have been simmering for 1 hour and 30 minutes, start making the roux.
In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour until everything is incorporated.
Continue to whisk while slowly adding the half-and-half .
Add bay leaves and whisk constantly until the sauce is thick and smooth.
Remove bay leaves and discard.
Add the roux to the mushroom soup and stir. Keep stirring until everything is mixed well.
Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Let simmer for about 5 minutes.
