8 oz Hickory Bacon
ingredients
1 (8 oz) package Jones Dairy Farm Dry Aged Bacon, diced
1 cup yellow onions, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
1 cup celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
3 (15 oz) can Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
DIRECTIONS
Cook bacon in soup pot or Dutch oven until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towel-lined plate. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.

To the hot bacon grease, add onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Cook over medium heat until ingredients begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Stir in chicken broth and beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a slow boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.

Transfer half of the soup to blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Return puree to soup pot and stir. Add tomato sauce and 3/4 of the reserved bacon and stir to combine. Let soup simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve topped with remaining bacon. Season to taste.

I used canned navy beans but everything else was exact. This was easy, super delicious and is now on my favorite recipe list. Next time I am going to use great northern beans.

I followed this recipe almost to a T, and this was the best bean and bacon soup I've ever had.

This was just what I was looking for! Of all the recipes I had found online this one most resembled my childhood favorite, Campbell’s soup. Except of course that this tasted, and was obviously, homemade. I followed the exact recipe. I don’t eat the Campbell’s version anymore because ​it tastes like they've changed the recipe. This truly hit the spot! Thanks!
