      I selected this recipe just for my husband and he quite enjoyed the bisque. I chopped all the vegetables very fine. I made this all on the stovetop as I was pressed for time, cooking on a low temperature and stirring often to keep it from scorching. I threw some crumbled bacon on top before serving. I think it came out perfectly and my husband was mighty pleased. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.
