    Sackville's Note:

    Here's a good winter soup that's not hard to make at all. The cheesy toasties on the side are a special treat and if you use Colman's mustard they'll have quite a bite!

      this soup is great I made double the quantity and only used 4 bacon rashers. I also used a little less vegetable stock too. It worked out beautifully. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
