Great flavor, although I did add a few extra touches. Some herbs, garlic powder, plenty of salt, and fresh parsley and chives to top it off! Made a great meal with some fresh bread. Next time I will probably add extra bacon to please my man :)

Delicious, but labor intensive so do yourself a favor and use bacon bits from a bag. The quantities might be a little off, because I halved everything and still had a LOT more than 4 servings. I don't think I'll make it again just because it takes too long, but the taste is perfect! Enjoy :)

didn't care for this- how ironic to say add the healthy carrots when the soup has 71 grams of FAT and over 1000 calories! Not a good soup for the heart!
