Bacon soup is a soup made with bacon. Generally a number of vegetables are added[1] and often a thickening agent such as pearl barley, lentils[2] or corn flour. It can be added to Italian minestrone soup to enhance the flavor.[3]

Many variations exist, which may incorporate primary ingredients such as cabbage,[4][5] beans,[6] potato,[7] lentils, spinach, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, leeks, pumpkin[8] and rice.[9]

Bacon is a common addition to many soups including creamy soups, especially those with a mild flavor that won't overpower the bacon.[10]
