Here is a soup with a silken elegance that makes it appropriate for the first course of a special dinner.

Ingredients

1 lb. small whole mushrooms (quartered, if large)
6 Tbs. butter or margarine
1 med. onion, finely chopped
2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves
2 tsp. catsup
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup half-and-half
1 egg
1 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. dry sherry

Directions

Saute mushrooms in heated butter in a 3 to 4 quart saucepan until lightly browned. Remove and reserve about 1/3 of the mushrooms.

To mushrooms in pan, add onion. Cook until limp and golden. Mix in flour, cooking until bubbly. Add salt, thyme and catsup. Remove from heat. Gradually mix in broth.

Cook, stirring until soup boils gently. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Whirl soup, half at a time, in blender until smooth. Return to saucepan.

Stir in half-and-half. Heat until soup steams. Beat egg with lemon juice in a small bowl. Stir in small amount of hot soup. Pour egg mixture into remaining soup.
