    Good side dish or soup. I use Hormel bacon bits (lower fat than bacon) and add bacon salt which boosts the bacon flavor and is 75% lower in sodium than regular salt. I also add a little chipotle pepper to kick it up a notch. - 8/30/08

    I didn't have half and half so I substituted more milk. It still game out great. I added extra bacon, garlic powder and some shredded colby jack on top. YUM! I'm going to try it with chunks of ham in it next time too! - 8/31/08

    Easy and naturally sweet. I agree with CrafyC's additions. A low sodium chicken or vegetable broth would make a good base. - 8/30/08
