An easy, quick and hearty soup that's great in winter. Tasty with garlic bread or melba toast and even better the next day. You can adjust all the seasonings to personal taste.

Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 216
This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality Irish back bacon but if you can't get this, it tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green colour of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns

Rating: 4.5 stars 95
I use bacon instead of ham and frozen hash brown potatoes in this pea soup. It's a good winter comfort food and smells wonderful while cooking. It freezes well, so when my husband and I are busy all day, its a quick dinner for us. I add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit. You can also cook whole bacon strips in the microwave until lightly browned. Transfer to paper towels and let cool; crush or tear into small pieces.

Avocado and Bacon Soup

Rating: 4 stars 35
Wonderful way to blend the tastes of avocado and bacon in a warm, hearty soup. Besides the bacon bits, this soup works with a dollop of sour cream and some lime zest. Eat with plenty of crusty bread.

Slow Cooker Potato-Bacon Soup

A quick and delicious comfort food made with canned corn, potatoes and bacon.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars 144
I created this butternut squash soup with bacon on Christmas Eve, which was a huge hit. The caramelized roasted squash gives the soup extra depth of flavor. This soup has a very creamy consistency but is completely dairy-free except for the optional garnish of sour cream (I did this on purpose due to a guest who is allergic to dairy). It is also extremely healthy. Don't shy away from the curry powder; it gives the soup extra flavor. Feel free to play around with the amount of carrot, onion, celery, or garlic to your taste. This soup can be made the day before and reheated.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 271
A rich, flavorful, surprising soup. Warm and soothing in the winter. By the second day the sauteed apples have really infused the soup and it is so tasty! Could be wonderful with mozzarella cheese grated on top just before serving.

Green Tomato and Bacon Soup
Rating: Unrated 20
This is a great way to use the green tomatoes at the end of the season. Freezes really well! I recommend serving it with a nice crusty bread.
Instant Pot® Potato and Bacon Soup
Rating: Unrated 8
Comforting homemade potato soup in the Instant Pot®. While peeling potatoes is not hard, it is a task I very much dislike, so I chose to use red potatoes in my recipe. No peeling necessary and they stay a pretty bright red for added color. Wobbly bacon is another dislike of mine and with this treatment of the bacon, you get all of the flavor throughout the soup and still get to keep the crispy goodness to use on top for garnish.
Black-Eyed Pea and Bacon Soup
Rating: 4.5 stars 57

A hearty and delicious soup made with black-eyed peas and diced bacon. Serve with fresh baked rolls or biscuits.
