This soup has a wonderful texture, thick but incredibly creamy. The taste is somewhere between dinner and dessert, a nice change of pace. My soup came out looking appetizing, just a little lighter in color than a slice of pumpkin pie. I did make one major alteration: instead of topping it with blue cheese and bacon, I fried a pound of bacon and wrapped each slice around a half a slice of Gouda cheese. I then rolled these into crescent rolls and served them with the soup, encouraging people to dip them. This turned out to be a major hit!

A very nice fall soup! I made a few changes and the outcome was fabulous! I cut the ceyanne pepper completely as we don't like spicy things. I used turkey bacon in place of regular bacon and I added a few tablespoons of brown sugar. I also added a few extra pinches of salt and a dash of white pepper. I will defintiely make this soup again! Thanks!

Very good and quick to prepare. The longest part was browning the bacon! It was just a bit spicy for my taste, so I will cut the cayenne in half next time and put out hot sauce on the side. My husband loved it just as it was.
