One of my favorite sandwiches of all time is a BLT.  Maybe it’s the salty bacon or the sweet tomatoes.  Maybe it’s the creamy mayo or the crispy toast.

Maybe it’s all of these things piled onto one sandwich that makes me swoon.

It’s a flavor mash-up that I just can’t get enough of.

So, of course, I thought, why not make it into a soup?!

This creamy BLT Soup recipe starts with a creamy, garlicky base and the flavors are layered on top.  Of course, there’s bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

But you also can’t forget the bacon croutons that float on top.  These bring the whole thing together.

There are a few tricks to making this soup.  First, you have to add the garlic at just the right time or you will end up with bitter, overcooked garlic that will overpower the soup.

Second, you have to use sturdy lettuce.  Iceberg or romaine will easily wilt and become mushy.  I went with hearty escarole in this recipe.  It’s sturdy texture held up when cooked in the soup. I also love this Instant Pot Potato Soup.

Last, you need to have toast in this recipe.  Because, well, what is a BLT without toast?!

To incorporate toast into the recipe, I slathered a piece of whole-grain toast with reserved bacon drippings, cut it up into croutons, and floated them on top of the soup.

I’m not gonna lie.  Bacon fat toast is life-changing.  I found myself dipping the crusts into the fat and eating them.  They’re THAT good.

Now, every good soup needs a good sandwich to go along with it.  I served mine with Sandwich Bros Chicken Melts.  They were the perfect size for dipping in my soup.

They are incredibly easy to make, too.  Simply microwave them for a short time and they’re ready.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.

I love that they are 100% white meat chicken and are made with real cheese.  It really makes a difference in flavor and quality.  My family absolutely loved them.  And, I loved that I can feel good about serving them.

They come individually wrapped so you can make as many as you need when you want them.  They go perfectly alongside your favorite soup and they make a great easy snack.
