With my few minor changes, this recipe is a solid 5. First, I skipped the olive oil and just cooked the garlic and onion in the bacon grease. I chopped the bacon up first, then cooked in the pot and then tossed in the onions and garlic. I also used twice as much bacon. Instead of pepper flakes, I used several dashes of tobasco sauce, I think this adds a much better flavor than the flakes. To the broth, I added a few splashes of cider vinegar as well as 1 tbs brown sugar, both help get rid of the bitterness. Let it simmer for about 3 hours, and yumm! Absolutely wonderful.
