    This will be our dinner tonight! I hope to log back in and comment on it. (I’m sure it will be great – who doesn’t love potato soup, especially with bacon??) :) A great way to save time on frying/crumbling bacon is to use a knife and cut across all the slices as they come wrapped in the package. Slice as fat or as skinny as you like – toss all these bits into a skillet and fry as you normally would – except when it’s all crisp, you simply drain on paper towels and it’s already in small bits, so there’s no crumbling step. Works for me!
