SPOT on recipe!!! My daughter just finished her internship at Disney and came home raving about this soup. I modified it a little bit to make it more like she said the original at Epcot.<br/>I fully cooked the bacon seperatly, I like it more crisp. I used a little of the bacon grease in the veggies.<br/><br/>Chicken Stock: I prefer the Knorr stock packages (like a little gel packet), it has a richer more velvety feel than canned stock. I add water to make the liquid amounts equal out. So I add one stock piece to the veggies and let it melt in, then half the water and put all of the veggies into a blender and puree them so they are smooth, then transfer back to the pot and stir in the flower and continue with the recipe as directed.
I love this soup ! Very rich and comforting for a cold winters night !
This was a very rich tasty soup. I cut the recipe in half, just the two of us, and was a little worried when I added the 1 cup of broth to the flour mixture. It was extremely thick, so I added about 1/2 cup more broth. The end result was a very tasty soup that I'll add to my winter time meals. Thanks
