Penny's Bacon & Tomato Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CarahsMama

Canned tomatoes, bacon and chicken broth make this an easy soup to throw together! Perfect paired with a nice slice of southern cornbread. My mother got it from a nice restaurant around Clayton, GA. Can't think of the name of it though. A very tasty and easy soup.

Thanks for the recipe, although I'm not really too much into tomatoes, this was good. I especially like the flavor of the broth with the bacon. I think next time, I will use 1 can of tomatoes and add either navy beans or potatoes. Good , easy soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook bacon until crispy. Drain, reserving 4 T. of drippings.
  2. Sauté onion in 1 T. of bacon drippings (or olive oil) until soft and transparent.
  3. Mix remaining drippings and flour in pan and cook until light brown.
  4. Add onion and hot broth, stirring until smooth.
  5. Whisk in can of water, tomatoes and bacon.
  6. Cook on low heat for 30-45 minutes.
  7. I think this would probably be good with turkey bacon for a lighter version and olive oil in place of the drippings.
