Cream of Mushroom Soup

Homemade cream of mushroom soup is ALWAYS a hit with me! Small recipe here because other people in my house (you know who you are) don't exactly enjoy the earthiness of mushrooms. (Double up everything to get 6 servings.)

1 tsp beef bouillon granules
1/4 cup boiling water
3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup 2% milk
6 oz cream cheese, cubed

In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in water; set aside. In a small saucepan, saute the mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour. Gradualy add the milk and reserved broth. Bring to a boil over meat heat, stirring constantly; cook for 1-2 minutes or unitl thickened. Reduce the heat; stir in the cream cheese until melted and soup is heated through. Salt and pepper to taste!
