Yep, it does taste like a BLT sandwich, just in soup form. I love to throw things out there for the family and even though I got funny looks when I told them what we were having, they ate it all. The recipe is also interesting on how it is put together. Again another recipe from my grandmother.
I found this on the TOH site and it has quickly become a favorite of my family's. Add a salad and a warm loaf of sourdough and it's perfect comfort food! I generally make the roux and then throw everything in my crockpot to simmer for a couple of hours. I use a cup of the buffalo sauce and 8 oz of Velvetta and it turns out just right for us.
One of the best soups you will ever have! To save time cook the sausage, onion and garlic hours ahead or even a day ahead and refrigerate. If serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double the complete recipe.
This comforting soup is excellent for a cold winter's night. I usually make it with pasta shells. It's a very filling soup and all you need with it is a fresh, crusty bread. I found the recipe in a South African magazine.
I had 20lbs of Vidalia onions and a flavor in my mind. Sweet onions, sharp cheddar, and the richness of homemade chicken stock. Mmmm. DH had seconds. The 15yo had 3rds. Use as a side dish or, with bread and salad, as a light meal in its own right.
