Wild Rice Soup


My Step-Mom gave me this recipe a long time ago but, of course, I changed it and made it my own! :) It's so delicious and perfect for a cold winter night!


Wild Rice Soup


Ingredients:
1 cup of wild rice, cooked
1/2 pound bacon
1 cup diced onions
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 pound shredded cheddar cheese
1 pint half and half
1 pint milk

Cook bacon until crisp.  Remove bacon and place on a paper towel covered plate to let the grease drain off.  Place onions into the same pan you cooked the bacon in and saute.  (If there is a ton of grease, you may want to remove some of it first)  Remove onions and drain on paper towels as well.

Add together the rice, soups and cheese in a medium size pot. Cook over medium heat. Stir until mixed through.  Slowly add in half and half and milk.  Simmer over medium low heat until cooked through and cheese is melted.  Do not boil!

(I would prefer to have made the soup bases myself instead of using cans, but this time I didn't have time. I plan on perfecting the recipe with some "from scratch" creamed soups.)

  1. I love a rich thick soup on a cold winter night like this - especially one that has bacon!

  2. This looks amazingly yummy, but I'm not sure if we could have it. Do you know if there is a way to make this organic.??
