    The 35 BEST Bacon Recipes

    This collection of great ways to cook with Bacon has such a variety of great dishes featuring your favorite smoked meat. We love this cozy cauliflower bacon soup:


    • 2 cauliflower heads, cut into medium sized florets
    • 6 bacon strips
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 2 tsp dried thyme
    • 6 cups chicken broth
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp cheddar cheese, divided
    • 2 scallions, chopped, for garnish
    • Salt & pepper to taste


    1. Fry bacon in a pot till crispy and remove to plate. Crumble it into pieces for garnish.
    2. In bacon grease, add in onion and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add in cauliflower florets along with salt, pepper and thyme. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes.
    3. Stir in chicken broth and cook for about 10 minutes till the cauliflower gets tender.
    4. Blend 3/4 of the cauliflower mixture in a blender leaving 1/4 behind in the pot. Mix blended cauliflower back into the pot and keep on simmering 5 minutes. Alternately, you can use an immersion blender.
    5. Add in sour cream, cream and 1 cup cheddar cheese and mix well.
    6. It's ready to serve. Optionally, if you want thicker consistency, mix 2 Tbsp regular flour or almond flour with cream into a slurry. Gradually stir into the soup until you get the desired consistency.
    7. Ladle the soup into bowls and top it with remaining cheddar cheese, bacon bits and chopped scallions. Serve hot.
