Recipe :: Bacon Cheese Soup

Last weekend I had the pleasure of trying Bacon Cheese soup at a restaurant off the lake in Wisconsin. While the service was awful the soup was DELICIOUS so I set off to see if I could hunt up a recipe to make it at home.

I had a bit of trouble finding a recipe (most were bacon potato cheese soups) I was finally able to find one to try! Hoping to make this yummy soup for Sunday's dinner! I'll report on the final results!
