Yesterday I posted our first weekly soup recipe. We made it for dinner last night and the vote was - YUM! We did deviate from the posted recipe slightly as we went through the cooking process. First, we cooked 6 slices of bacon in the bottom of the soup pot until it was crispy and then removed to drain on a paper-towel covered plate. Then we sauteed the onion and celery in that instead of butter or oil. The only other change we made was to add an additional can of creamed corn; it looked like it could be just a tiny bit more thick. We then crumbled up the bacon and sprinkled on top with the shredded Colby cheese, some fresh ground black pepper and a couple of "Texas Toast" croutons. Served with some sourdough bread on the side, it was a very filling, very tasty dinner!
We had it again for lunch today, and it was still just as good!
