Broccoli, Bacon and Cheddar Soup

Gina Drake


This recipe gives new meaning to the saying "Necessity is the Mother of Invention"! You see, when we were snowed in after an Arctic blast, I wanted to make something warm and comforting for dinner. I remembered a wonderfully delicious vegetable casserole that fit the bill but I wanted soup! Hence, this adaptation was born. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
