Bean, Bacon and Pepper Soup

Rating: 4.56 stars
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: 4.56 stars
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: 4.42 stars
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: 3.97 stars
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.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars
I created this soup on Christmas Eve and it was a huge hit. The roasted squash caramelizes giving the soup that 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 that extra flavor. Feel free to play around with the amount of carrot, onion or celery, garlic to your taste. This soup can be made the day before and reheated.

Inspiration and Ideas

Instant Pot® Potato and Bacon Soup

Rating: Unrated
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.

Becca's Potato Bacon Soup

Rating: Unrated
This creamy potato soup is good any time of the year, but especially in cold weather months. It reheats well and can be made without bacon or cheese. This is filling enough to be served as a main dish, but also makes a nice side soup if served in smaller portions. Feel free to add your own ingredients: other vegetables, seasonings, different cheeses, etc. When serving, some options for garnish are chopped green onions, additional crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and parsley. Enjoy!
