- 4 cups water
- 2 cups light cream or half-and-half
- 2 cups sour cream

- Melt butter or margarine in large skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms and
onion and sauté until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Sprinkle flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg over vegetables; stir to blend well.
Place in 5-quart slow cooker.
- Using wire whisk, beat in water, cream or half-and-half,
sour cream and chicken broth.
