A soup full of flavour and very filling. Perfect for a main meal. I did freeze and didn’t loose taste or texture.

I made this for the first time today and it was delicious.
I changes the milk for cream and added 2 tsp of minced garlic, i will definitely be making this again. Nothing beats home made soup πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Really enjoyed this! Very tasty! I think next time I’ll leave the bacon out and just serve it with crispy bacon bits as I thought blitzing the bacon made the texture a bit strange. Loved it though and will definitely be making it again soon.

Cooked it. Loved it. Quick to make and very cheap to make as well. Big winner and will make again 😍😍😍😍

Made this soup last Winter, minus the bacon due to a pork intolerance. Can confirm it was absolutely delicious. Refrigerated well – I think we were eating portions for about a week!

This sounds amazing! What would be the best substitute for milk to make it a low carb soup?

I have made this soup 5 times in the last 3 weeks (twice without the camenbert as I didn’t have any. I added a splash of worcestershire sauce instead those times). I use 1 litre chicken stock and only a splash of milk.
It is safe to say it has quickly become a favourite in our house and amongst several of my friends who have asked for the recipe. I cook it about 3.5 hours on high (6.5 lt slow cooker) before blitzing.

Made this on the weekend and it turned out amazingly.
Only difference is I left skin on the Camembert and all was ok 😁
Great recipe !

This was a huge hit in our house! I used a little diced ham as garnish instead of using bacon in the soup, evaporated milk instead of ordinary milk and added garlic and fresh mixed herbs. A smooth, creamy delightful soup that everyone loved.

Made this yesterday I added 1 tablespoon of minced garlic then kept to the recipe. It took longer to cook than stated in the recipe could be my sc It was really good but I found it very rich next time I will use less Camembert

Made this tonight with some slight variations. Added 3 tbsp of garlic. 1L of chicken stock. And Gorgonzola instead of Camembert. Blitzed with crusty bread was AMAZING!!

Does this soup refrigerate well? Just wondering because of the cheese in it


May 20, 2018

Made this today with Zero Lactosr Anchor Milk. Amazing doesn’t describe how yummy this is. I blitzed it. What a hit. Can’t wait to make it again.

This soup is just lovely, thick and creamy, I will definitely be making this again. Just loved it


May 19, 2018

Made this yesterday. Delicious! Very thick so thinned it out with a bit of water. Added garlic but otherwise stuck to recipe. Took longer than the recipe said. Maybe my SC is a bit slow!

Overall nice soup. I used skim milk and added 1tsp minced garlic. Cooked 4h low then 2h high. Blitzed & served with crusty bread roll. Dont be deceived by its appearance it is a taste sensation. 😊

Yummo I decided not to blitz and serve a bit chunky on the cards again


May 10, 2018

I made this yesterday for us and it tastes delicious, haven’t blitzed it though. Thankyou so much for sharing the recipe! πŸ™‚

You can see photos of my end result here >> HERE

While it really did not look appealing after a good blitz… it was super tasty and really exceeded my expectations. Would love to know whether the chunky look was me and I should have blended longer, or just how it ends up. Overall an amazing recipe

Such a delicious soup! Whole family loved it, gets requested almost weekly, and it’s so easy!

Cooked this and loved it!
I added a spoon of minced garlic to mine and I left the skin on the cheese πŸ™‚
I also didn’t blend the end soup as I LOVED it just as it was!

5 out of 5. I used 200g of blue cheese instead of camembert. So easy and soooo tasty.
Proud and thankful

Thanks Jayne. I really enjoyed this. I find I needed an extra hours cooking time on high,. Which is probably just my sc. I stuck to the recipe. I I’ll do this again, double the recipe and also add garlic.
