Roasted Tomato Soup with Thick Cut Bacon

Roasted Tomato Soup with Thick Cut Bacon

I know it's been a busy week for me, has it been for you, too? Luckily, we've survived Carmageddon with no issues. In fact, traffic has been a dream this weekend with everybody staying home. They should do this every year!

My mother reminded me of this recipe for Roasted Tomato Soup with Thick Cut Bacon that I first made in Floyd a few years ago. Boy, time flies! She cooked it right before the 4th of July, which inspired me to make it in Des Moines for my in-laws, with bacon from the local Des Moines Bacon Company and tomatoes, both purchased at the farmers market. The results were... heavenly!

It's essentially like a fresh take on the childhood favorite -- tomato soup. Only here, the tomatoes are roasted, and crispy bacon takes the place of a grilled cheese for dipping in the soup. It's perfect for tomato season.

I'm featuring the recipe this week in my weekly recipe column in West Hollywood and Hollywood Patch.

Here's a direct link to the recipe and photos
