Love this soup though I prefer to sub in 100% wild rice versus the Uncle Ben's. Really good and really quick!

This soup really is quick and easy! I used turkey bacon and a store brand processed cheese food. It was a bit salty and not as creamy as Velveeta so if possible use the real thing. Since the cheese was salty enough for us I did not add any additional salt. What a wonderful flavor and the cubes of potatoes from the canned soup added another great texture! The bacon added a smokey warm flavor that reminded me of scalloped potatoes and ham. Cant wait to have some for lunch tomorrow! Thank you WhoKnew? for a wonderful recipe I will be making again!
