RECIPE BACKSTORY
My favorite comfort food on a chilly day. This version, posted in the local paper by Mary Green, North Richland Hills, TX, is fairly healthy, with the whole wheat croutons and all. The last time I made it, I had the deli slice circles of baby swiss that fit perfectly over my soup bowls. I layered soup, croutons, then the cheese on top..put under the broiler until melted, browned and bubbly.
