OMG! Cheese and bacon soup! This is the best soup to make for the boys watching football. They love cheese; they love bacon; they don't even notice the veggies. I cut the bacon down to 12 oz just to make me feel better. This is a winner! Thanx!

I love bacon and this recipe is definitely pretty good. I did make some alterations, I added carrots and substituted half the cheese for velveeta. It came out very very thick (the velveeta's fault I suspect) but it was still very good. It would be perfect for dipping nachos. I dipped french bread in it instead, and it was so very filling.

This recipe satisfied my craving for soup when I went to make broccoli and cheese but realized my broccoli had gone bad. I was so sad and then bam! This recipe.
