Made this up tonight. I compared some recipes and then used what I had. Turned out very tasty! Bet it would be good vegetarian too. Great served with herbed croutons and shredded Parmesan cheese!

Very good and easy! Skipped the sherry adn marjoram - and used fresh chives instead of the dried. Next time I will decrease the water to 1 cup to make a thicker soup. Thanks for sharing!

I really liked this! I'm not fond of sage so I decreased the amount to 1/8 tsp. I wonder if that's the spice others didn't like. I also threw in a tsp of parsley for the heck of it. I think this would be more flavorful with a ham hock, smoked pork butt bone, etc, but the canadian bacon is a nice lower-fat choice. DH shuns soup so I went for thickness and decreased the water to 1 cup. It was still a soup. And a darn good one at that. Thanks!

This is a thick and flavourful soup. My son didn't care for the spices. Next time I will change the spices a bit. It is very filling and a lovely colour. I think I may used chicken broth next time. I didn't find it too salty as someone had mentioned. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to leftovers for lunch at work!
