After really REALLY trying to like it, I still HATE turkey bacon, cooked as bacon, but it is really GOOD in this soup -- tastes more like ham! This recipe is a quick throw together soup on a cold winter's day, to use up a package of turkey bacon. Served with Parmesan Sour Cream Cornbread --
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 8 ounces turkey bacon (cut into bite-size pieces)
- 1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
- 2 medium russet potatoes (peeled and cubed)
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon dried celery flakes
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1⁄8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can green beans (drained)
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
- Melt butter in a saucepan and saute chopped onion and chopped turkey bacon until onion is translucent, and bacon is sorta frizzled ~ about 4 minutes.
- Add beef broth, cubed potatoes, bay leaves, celery flakes, thyme, red pepper flakes, and Worcestershire sauce ~ bring up to heat, then simmer for 10-12 minutes until potatoes are tender, but still firm.
- Add drained green beans, and diced tomatoes with juice ~ simmer for about 5 minutes more, until heated thoroughly.
- Serve with Parmesan Sour Cream Cornbread, and sliced jalapenos.
Yum - what a great and hearty soup! I had some red-skinned potatoes on hand so used them, and was generous with the crushed red pepper because we love it. Quick to make, filling and flavorful - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011
Made this as written, though I added a small dash of parsley in it. Made for a nice soup, to go together with a ground turkey casserole I made tonight. Full of flavors, and great for a cool winters night. Made for Rookie Tag
