My Delicious Baked Potato and Bacon Soup

Norma DeRemer


Can you believe this soup has only 235 calories with 7 grams of fat. Believe it or not! Found the recipe in an old magazine while soaking in the tub last week.I made it the next day for lunch and invited my girlfriend over to share it and had the rest for dinner that night when Woody came home. All three of us couldn't believe the good taste of this soup. It will be another keeper for me while still on my kick of loosing weight.
