Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup

I just made this and is very good tasting creamy and very filling Thank-you Faerie Girl, Anyone that likes a creamy onion soup i would suggest trying this. I made this the only exception i did was at the end i served it in soup bowls and grated cheddar and mozzerella on top in placed in the oven to melt the top of the cheese.

Add white sauce and Velveeta cheese. White sauce will be thick because it has been remove from the heat. Simmer on medium low heat until the cheese is melted and all ingredients are blended, stirring constantly.
Turn temperature to warm and let cook for additional 30 min. to 45 min.

Thick White Sauce:

Pour milk in flour a little at a time and stir constantly, add salt. Mixture should thicken and become like thick pudding.
Remember to stir constantly taking care not to let mixture lump, set aside off from heat until ready to use for the soup.
