This soup is pretty fantastic! I agree with other reviewers, that a full pound of bacon isn't necessary, but it does allow you a piece in almost every bite. I doubled most of the ingredients in the recipe and still didn't have left-overs, as almost everyone who I shared it with went back for seconds. I made a couple key improvisations. You will definitely want more liquid than the recipe asks for if you want to have a more soup like consistency. I used about 32 ounces of chicken stock instead of bouillon and also added water. Unless you just don't like garlic, (crazy!) I would strongly recommend you throw a few pressed garlic cloves in while sautéing your onions and celery. 2 hints! 1. Taste while salting as there again is a lot of bacon
2. Add a dolup of whole plain greek yogurt or sour cream to each bowl
Next time I will probably add some carrot and do half and half onion and leek for color
