Expert Tips

Instead of using purchased bacon pieces, cook 2 strips of bacon until crisp, then drain and crumble.

Southern-style hash brown potatoes are diced instead of shredded. These work best in this recipe.

Tip: Saving a batch for later? Fill freezer bags with soup, then lay flat to freeze for easy stacking and freezer organization. More smart freezer bag tips.
