Bean & Bacon Soup

Bean & Bacon Soup is made with simple ingredients that we tend to have on hand, which makes it way better than a bowl of canned soup!

What do we serve soup with?

Typically, soup is the main dish for our dinners. But that doesn’t mean the meal is complete! We love to serve our soup with a variety of bread, depending on our mood. Thank goodness for options! Here are some of our favorites: Bread BowlsJaney Lou’s Beehive Rolls, Tuscan Mini Loaves, or our Ciabatta Bread. In addition, add some garlic butter using our Garlic Supreme to make your bread even better. 

How Long Does Bean & Bacon Soup Last?

You guessed it, in the fridge, cooked soup will typically last for 3 to 4 days. To further extend the shelf life, you can always freeze it. Just use covered, airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags
