For this week's crockpot Saturday I made this gem. You all know that soup is my favorite so I am super excited to share this recipe with you all. This is one of our favorites, it is so flavorful, aromatic, creamy, and full of bacon. Yes, I said bacon so right there you know you will love this soup.
