A delicious cream-based soup for comfort food lovers. Dads and hubbies will love the pieces of bacon that pull together this bowl full of fabulousness.
Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. (About a six). Put in all the bacon and cook until it is how you like it. When cooked, take off heat.
In a very large saucepan at the same heat, put in your butter and let it melt and then add the flour to make a roux. Mix together the two ingredients and let simmer for about a minute.
In your roux, add the heavy cream, chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, vegetables and the pre-cooked bacon. Let soup boil and turn heat down to very low heat (about 2 or 3).
Let soup simmer until the veggies are tender which will take about half an hour, stirring occasionally and testing a few times. When the vegetables are tender, add the basil, salt and pepper.
