Potato and Onion Breakfast Soup with Egg and Bacon #TasteCreations

Welcome to the 2021 Edition of Taste Creations!  This is our fourth year and I cannot be more pleased with the bloggers that make up this small and wonderful group of bloggers!  This month we are sharing delicious soups with you, and particularly I will be showing you how to make a delicious Breakfast Soup.  

This breakfast soup is made with potatoes and creates a delicious, creamy base for a poached egg and crispy fried bacon!  The soup is delicious on its own, but add a poached (or fried!) egg and it goes over the top!  A beautiful and tasty dish, especially nice for a later, brunch-like meal.

Before I share the recipe with you, take a look at the soup recipes I am sharing with you from our Taste Creation bloggers.
