One of my favorite soups growing up was Campbell's Bean with Bacon. I begged my mom to buy it all the time. Now that I am concerned about sodium and MSG in my food for health reasons, I stopped buying my favorite soup, not quite so content to do with out. I originally found this recipe on Tiffany's blog, Eat At Home, one of my favorite food blogs. As soon as I saw it, I know I could modifiy the recipe just a bit and have my favorite soup once again. It's delicious! Below is my modified version. You can see the original here.
Bean with Bacon Soup
2 - 3 slices of bacon, diced and fried
1/2 onion, diced and cooked with bacon
2 cans Great Northern Beans (I used frozen beans I had cooked from my freezer)
1/2 can diced tomatoes
1 box chicken broth (I used 2 containers of homemade broth from my freezer)
1/2 t oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Cook bacon and onions, toss in a soup pot. Add all other ingredients and cook until everything is heated through. Serve. I put everthing in a crockpot and heat for 3 -4 hours on high. Works great.
