MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 26, 2012

when i first made this recipe from the magazine, i didn't know that Americans called peameal "Canadian bacon" so i just used regular bacon and it turned out very well! love how simple it is!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2012

I had expected the Canadian bacon to really stand out in this soup. Instead it came off more as just sort of a ho-hum vegetable cheese soup...not bad but we didn't find it in any way exceptional.
