I wanted to really love this recipe, but I just couldn't. Well, not without changing the recipe. What did I dislike? The prep time, for one thing. You can achieve as good a result with butter (3-4 Tbsp), as you can with bacon grease. And there's no cutting up a pound of bacon. Second, I think it was very bland. I'm no salt addict, but I had to add two teaspoons or so, just to give it some flavor. What did I like? It was very creamy and comforting on a cold night. And, really, 1 C. of cream isn't all that much, considering the soup filled up my pot (a good 4 quarts). I would change the herbs to something like an Italian seasoning blend, but that's personal preference. Overall, it's a good base soup recipe. It just needs more seasoning and flavor.
