In Wisconsin, heart of the dairy land, is a monastery where Salvatorian Fathers pack the finest of cheese in great variety — longhorn, Port du Salut, blue, smoky, Cheddar, brick, Swiss, Gouda, Cloister, and many appetizer spreads and rolls — all made with milk from the seminary farm. From among the kitchen-tested recipes in the "Monastery Cheese" booklet, we chose several we are sure you will enjoy.

DIRECTIONS

Melt butter or margarine in 3-quart saucepan; sauté onion lightly. Add flour. Add milk and stock, stirring constantly until slightly thickened and smooth. Add baking soda, vegetables, seasonings, and cheese. Simmer 15 minutes. Do not boil; if soup is boiled, it may curdle. Just before serving, add chopped parsley. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
