On a cold, snowy day, what you want…what you NEED…is a bowl or mug of hot soup!

I’m one of those guys that says: “Everything is better with bacon!”

Including soup!

This soup is delicious…hearty and warm…and easy to make! So, here you go:

6 slices of bacon (or MORE, because more is just BETTER!)

1 & 1/2 t olive oil

1/2 C chopped onion

1/2 C chopped carrots

1 stalk celery, chopped

4 C chicken broth

4 C cubed potatoes

1/8 t cayenne pepper

1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 t salt

Cook bacon til crisp. Remove.

saute

Add olive oil to pan, and saute the onions, carrots, and celery, til onions are brown.

In big soup pot, add chicken broth and potatoes, and the sauted vegetables.

Add pepper.

Bring to a boil.

simmer

Reduce heat, and simmer til potatoes are tender. About 10-15 minutes.

Stir in cheese, and let melt.

Add bacon.

Ladle the soup in a bowl or mug, and enjoy!

NOTE: Since some people either don’t like cheese, or are lactose intolerant, I omit the cheese, and let people sprinkle the cheese over their soup, if they want!

I’m thinking some of this soup is going to end up in my “Campbell Kids” mugs…click for my earlier nj1015.com story featuring these LOST pop culture items!

“Mmmmm…Mmmmm…Good!”
