Very good soup! The variety of flavors (chicken, ham, and bacon) make a delicious combination. I thought the green onions were a very nice touch for visual appeal. The soup was nice and rich....what I call "good stuff". Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I will definately make this again.
Easy to make. Used Red potatoes with Skin on instead of White potatoes to add color and fiber to soup. Garnished with chopped hard cook eggs and diced bacon. big hit.
