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 was so yummy. I think I added too much flour because it kind of came out gravy-ish but it was still good!
