Wow. Simply wonderful soup. DH, who never wants to express a rating opinion, insists I give it five stars... and I concur! The flavor and texture of the soup is amazing. We tasted it before adding the thickening and it was perfect as it was. Adding the thickening changed it somewhat and we won't use it in the future. The soup is very rich and you don't need a big bowlful unless you want to tempt cardiac fate! It would be the perfect starter for a dinner party. Thanks so much for posting a wonderful recipe! Made for team Gourmet Goddesses, ZWT9.
Made as written for the Goddesses of ZWT-9 (except for the addition of lemon pepper & croutons) & I can testify this recipe makes a great bowl of soup! It is delicious, ingredient-friendly & an incredibly easy-fix. The flavor of the blue cheese is prominent, but not overly so. The soup tastes creamed w/o cream added except what might be in the cheese. AND the finishing touch of the crisped bacon added a salty textural crunch to further please the palate. Thx for sharing this outstanding recipe w/us. :-)
Wonderful soup... Message from DS..Keep the recipe. The bleu cheese flavor really stands out, and will be kept. Liked the bacon/ blue cheese mixture too. A great soup for a really cold night here. Went real well with a broccoli/cauliflower casserole we had for dinner tonight. Made for FYC.
Wonderful soup! I will definitely be making this soup many times throughout the winter! So creamy, even without any milk or cream. Loved the saltiness of the blue cheese and bacon. Only thing I added was some freshly ground black pepper. Thanks for sharing!
