Made this for my family tonight. Absolutely delicious! I added two extra pieces of shortcut bacon (just had them on hand), and used chicken stock instead of vegetable and I also added about two tablespoons of minced garlic. Really flavourful!

Delicious! Didn’t have nutmeg so used 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger. Yum!
