Creamy Bacon Mushroom Soup Recipe

I’ve always enjoyed cooking and recently created this rich soup. It’s always a hit. You can also garnish it with chopped green onion tops or shredded Swiss cheese. For a creamier, smoother consistency, try pouring the soup through a strainer. —Nathan Mercer Inman, South Carolina
