This was FABULOUS. I only had thick sliced bacon so I used 5 slices of bacon. I also thought I had potatoes, but alas I did not so I guess mine was more of a soup. I also did not add additional salt since recipe calls for 2 cans of soup, and I added a bay leaf. Otherwise I kept to the recipe. As the cook I couldn't stop "testing" during cooking. I almost couldn't eat during dinner, but I "managed" to make room (haha). DH has requested it be added to our soup suppers. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

I followed this recipe exactly. I didn't add any salt at the end since the soup and the bacon are salty enough. I didn't particularly care for this but dh liked it. It was definitely easy to prepare, though! I am not sure what it was that I didn't care for - when I figure it out, I may try this again.
