Yummy! We really enjoyed this soup. I had ham broth I saved from a baked ham I made so I used that instead of the chicken broth. It turned out great! I wish I had made a double batch, it's so good. Thanks, GailAnn!

Very good, very thick soup! I think celery would have been a great addition to this soup. I liked it even better the next day when I added some water and topped it with nonfat sour cream and more bacon bits. I agree with the original portion sizes you had on the recipe (serves 4-6). Thank you!

Very Good!!!!! Was easy to make and very hearty. There wasn`t any leftovers on this one. My family is not real big into soups. They said this one was a keeper.
