"This is my family's favorite cauliflower soup. Recipe found in Company's Coming Soups and Sandwiches. To make the buttered breadcrumb garnish simply make crumbs out of day old bread in the food processor (or crumble with your fingers), melt a tablespoon butter in pan, add 1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs and stir until well-coated."

This is a wonderful soup, fast and easy to put together. I reduced the salt as there was some in the cheese. I also added a wee but of freshly ground nutmeg (personal pref)at the end, which livened it up a wee bit. Thank you for sharing this keeper! Will definately be made again.
