Wow! I tried to halve the recipe but that still made three quarts. Instead of adding the flour to the hot oil and onions, I mixed the half cup of flour with cold water, which made one full cup(no lumps). In my Ninja I chopped an 8oz. pkg of fresh/frig dried spinich and used a cup of milk to help it move easier in the chopper. My machine is on the small side and I chopped all the spinich in two batches. In the pot with the butter and onions, I put chicken broth, the balance of the milk and slightly less than 8oz. of gorgonzola. I brought that to a boil with frequent stirring, then added the spinich/milk and stirred to a boil again. I lowered the heat,stirred in the heavy cream. I put some in a bowl with a pinch of ground sannam pepper and loved it, however, the rest of the family can't do hot peppers. We then tried ground black pepper and that touched it off nicely. I didn't have any bacon, but next time, I'm thinking that some deeply browned lean ground beef, cooked in olive oil and some garlic, would be nicer to mix into the soup. Oh yeah, I put in extra onions and only sauteed them on low heat till they turned clear. As green as it is, this would be a great St.Patricks meal starter before a lamb stew.
