Just got this recipe finally, have eaten it before and it was wonderful. Can't wait to try it, but thought I'd share it with my Zaar family.

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.
