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.
This is an extremely thick hardy soup, a whole meal in a bowl. We usually have some raw vegetables with dip and some good crusty bread with it. It freezes very well. I've had this recipe for sometime now. I believe it came from the first year of the Taste of Home magazine, but I'm not positive.
This quick and easy recipe is so much better than the canned stuff. Great as a first course, or with salad or sandwiches. Of course, you can use it in your favorite recipes, too. To make it thicker, use less stock and/or use heavy cream instead of the half-and-half cream or milk.
This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.
I couldn't resist sharing another Top Secret Restaurant Recipe with you! By Todd Wilbur, of course.From www.TopSecretRecipes.com. Although I've been to Ruby Tuesday, I've never had their potato soup until now. Oh this is good! On a cool Autumn evening, whip up this soup and most likely you'll find yourself making it again and again.
