MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 29, 2011

I thought this soup was a little too thick when I got the final product so I added another can of broth to thin it out a bit. If I were to make this again I would use real bacon chopped into very small pieces and cooked till crisp then I would transfer them to a plate and sautee my onion in the bacon drippings rather than butter then add the broth 3 cans instead of 2 then fisnish the rest of it the way it is written
