This recipe is easy peasy (see what I did there?) and if you wish you can add ham in to it too. For this occasion I feel that it was enough with the candied bacon. I did not want to do double pork, I feel that it might be as bad as double denim.

I have served this soup both as a warming lunch and as a canapé. It has always received a glowing compliment. How can you not love it? It has candied bacon!!

 

Enjoy
