Cream of Bacon Soup

Teri Halbrook


I found this recipe on Facebook posted by someone in my Insta pot group . It sounded so awesome that I had to make it but with a few changes the recipe does call for 1/2 cup sherry . I don't like sherry so I didn't put it in and I forgot to add in extra broth turned out great, also I used regular salt not seasoned salt and wondra flour not regular flour .And I added pepper. My family fell in love with this soup and want me to make it more often, also I didn't use my Insta pot, just my trusty dutch oven.
