Campbell's Bean and Bacon Soup

READY IN: 15hrs
Recipe by Diana Adcock

You might have guessed this is a copycat recipe and it rocks if you like Bean and Bacon Soup. Serve with cornbread and honey or sleeves of saltine crackers. Prep time includes bean soaking time.

While I didn't find this exactly like the Campbells version, it is very close, and is an excellent soup. I will definately make it again.
