DESCRIPTION

One batch makes 2 and 1/2 cups which is approximately the amount you would get from two 10.5 ounce cans of condensed soup. You can halve or double the recipe.
To use in a casserole, use 1 and 1/4 cup of condensed mixture whenever a recipe calls for one can of condensed soup.
To eat this as a soup, mix condensed soup with equal amounts milk, heat and serve (to prepare the entire batch as a soup, mix with 2 and 1/2 cups of milk, heat and serve).
