This soup is luxurious.Cheesy and creamy and so incredibly hearty and delicious.

If the thought of bacon and cheese has you crying for a healthier soup,well,let your woes be gone!!

We have officially declared this our new favorite soup of the fall season.

I think it was the first meal in a while that I didn't even need to rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher because the bowls were scraped perfectly clean.

那是在我们大多数人都有时间之后。I employed the boys help with all the chopping of the vegetables and spent the entire meal hearing them declare:"Hey,I just ate one of the carrotschopped!“另一个孩子会很快做出反应”Nuh-uh,I chopped that one."Sigh.

At least they ate well.I would have declared this the Ultimate Perfect Miracle-of-all-Miracles Soup if there had been no quibbling at dinner.Still on the hunt for that one…

Notes

You could easily use turkey bacon here especially since the bacon grease is drained before proceeding with the recipe.Alternately,if you like to live life on the edge,you can use the bacon grease for the base of the white sauce and omit the butter (just make sure you have at least 3 tablespoons,otherwise,supplement with butter).

This soup is definitely on the thicker side of things;if you want a thinner soup,consider decreasing the broccoli by half (only using 2 cups or so) or adding additional broth at the beginning or the end.
