Bacon and Tomato soup share the same good flavors that make a bacon and tomato sandwich outstanding! Bread is served with this soup,to complete the combination.

a couple of notes-
A special touch is a light sprinkling of nutmeg.

A slightly different taste will come through substituting yogurt or sour cream for the heavey sweet cream
