I found the recipe on Facebook and couldn't resist clicking on the link that took me to the blog of Iowa Girl Eats.... and the recipe for this lush soup. Meant to be a replacement for Potato Soup, it seems more like a rich, cheesy rice casserole to me.....but in soup form! Yeah....no?
I did alter the recipe just a tiny bit.....don't I always? I started by cooking my bacon....I used 5 slices. Why? Because!
Beautiful, huh? So, while the bacon was frying, I used my mini food processor to chop up two celery heart stalks (change...recipe calls for one) and three green onions (change...recipe calls for onion powder, but I like the real thang).
