My Girl, Paula: Bacon Cheesebuger Soup

This weeks My Girl Paula was anything beef. Since its been really cold here i decided to make a soup. This one was a hit with my usband and I, kids liked the broth. Instead o
f usinf the french fried onions I used the crispy bacon. And I also used beef broth, but that was a mistake, didn't realize it was beef stock until I poured half the cantaner in. It still came out really good.. Just might have to make it again. This recipe can be found in the nov/dec magazine.

10 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 pounds ground chuck
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp, minced garlic
1 (32oz) box low sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5oz) can petit diced tomatoes
1 (10.75oz) can chedder cheese soup
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
french fried onions, optional

In a large Dutch oven, cook bacon until crispy; remove from pan, and drain on paper towels. Add ground beef, onion, and garlic; cook for 6-8 mins, or until beef is browned and crumbly. Drain well. Add broth, tomatoes, soup, relish and worcestershire. Cook for 10 to 15 mins longer, until heated through. Garnish with french fried onions, if desired.
