Wow this is really good. I did everything as written in the recipe with one change. After the soup simmered for 45 minutes I took half out and blended it until smooth added it back to the soup pot and simmered for another 10 minutes. This just helps to get more mushroom flavor in to the soup while still keeping chunks of mushrooms. It also helps to thicken the soup a little which is a little thin for cream of mushroom. The recipe is 5 stars even without those changes I was just in the mood for a stronger mushroom flavor.

Deeee-lish! This fit perfectly into my keto lifestyle and was super tasty too! I cut the recipe in half and also used fresh thyme. I also didn't need to cook the full 45 mins. The only change I would suggest is adding more mushrooms - personal preference. I will be making this one often!

Made it for an instant pot smothered pork steaks recipe. Whoops forgot to add the chicken broth! Thankfully if your're using in a recipe that calls for condensed use this instead. Low carb and turns out great. Anything with mushrooms cream and cream cheese is going to rock your recipe!! Steaks turned out great. Going to try the same exact thing with Worcestershire sauce and sugar free ketchup on the cheapest cut of beef I can get my hands on and make stroganoff style steak...

This was the best cream of mushroom soup I have ever had low carb or otherwise. I looked at several recipes and this one made the most sense for the purpose I had in mind which was to curb my sudden craving for my Grandmother's smothered pork chops. Talk about heaven. This HFLC version was even better than what she used to dish up; of course she always used that canned stuff my generation grew up on. NEVER AGAIN! As far as changes I halved the amount of butter and substituted it for bacon fat and left out the sherry.

Yum! My family has this weird meatballs and rice thing that they love but I just started keto and canned CoM soup has too many carbs so I tried it this way and cooked up some cauliflower rice. It was a hit and nobody missed the carbs.

This soup was outstanding. It was easy to prepare creamy and rich in flavor. I couldn't stop tasting it and probably ate half a bowl just by dipping a spoon in as it was cooling. I followed the directions to a T. The only "change" I made was to stir frequently rather than constantly during the simmer phase. Stirring constantly for 45 minutes would have made this a nightmare to prepare but stirring 4-5 times was fine. It was clear that the stirring was important though for breaking the cream cheese down.

Absolutely delicious! I will definitely make it again. The only change I made was to add a little very low carb flour mix to thicken it up a tad more.
