Many years ago we frequented the Red Lion Inn here in Bensalem and ALWAYS ordered their Spinach Soup prior to our entree and it was FABULOUS!
After a few trips to the restaurant I decided to try to make it myself. Turned out great & my brother started making it and taking it to our mom's which became a tradition years ago.
I haven't made it in years. My son who's pretty much a healthy eater asked me to make something healthy(ier) and my first thought was this delicious spinach soup.
I just added the bacon pieces figuring the drippings would be an added feature in this recipe.
