This Soup Was So Good I Ate the Leftovers For Breakfast!

If You Grew Up Eating Campbell’s Mmm-mm-Good Soup, You Will Love This

I was perusing the soup isle at the grocery store the other day because I needed a can of cream of chicken soup. When my eyes landed on the Bean and Bacon soup I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. I loved eating Bean and Bacon soup when I was a kid, it was so creamy and satisfying. I almost picked up a can but when I saw how much it cost for what was sure to be one meal I hesitated. I knew I could make a whole pot of soup for my family and have enough for leftovers if I made it myself, and even though I grew up on the taste of the Campbell’s version I know that anything made fresh tastes so much better and is better for you.

Boy was I right. This soup is really easy to make and is so delicious that I am already looking forward to making it again. There is something about a bowl of this, cupped in your hands, that just warms you to the core. So while the commercial jingle says “Mmm..Mmm..Good.” I am now singing a new tune that states “Ahh Ahh Amazing!”

I love that this uses canned northern beans, but for you die hard Insta-Pot chefs, go ahead and start with dry beans and cook them up first. Talk about stretching your food budget dollars.

This is what Deborah of Taste and Tell has to say about this childhood favorite.

“Skip the can – Filled with veggies and chunks of bacon, it’s the soup that blows that soup of my childhood out of the water. Seriously – this bean and bacon soup was so good – there will be no more cans of soup in my future!”


Quick Tip: This is seriously so good you might want to go ahead and make a double batch in your crock pot or Insta-Pot and freeze some for later.
