Time to table: 60 minutes
Servings: Dinner for four, with some lunch leftovers
Modifications: I used more bacon and I didn’t take it out as the recipe indicates. I cooked the bacon first, and then used the bacon grease to cook the vegetables. I also used a lot more veggies (1 whole onion, several carrots, several celery stalks) because we like thicker soups around here. I lightly pureed the soup with the immersion blender on its lowest setting.
Notes: Big time winner here. It was cool the day we made this and it was perfect for the weather and the kids devoured it, which is always satisfying.
