This is a very yummy soup! It's great for a cold weather warm-you-up, delecious as s meal beginner, or wonderful as a one pot meal! I sometimes use regular bacon in place of the Canadian bacon just to change it up sometimes. I forgot to measure how much soup I got but I know I froze several quarts. The amount will be a "guestimation".
