BCT (Bacon, Cabbage and Tomato) Soup

The husband was craving a BLT and soup, so I figured I make both into a single dish.  This soup is amazingly similar to the sandwich we all love.  I opted for cabbage instead of lettuce since I had some that desperately needed to be used.  Don’t knock this soup until you try it.  This recipe is great served with a nice warm dinner roll, and I must admit, as someone whom isn’t a fan of tomatoes, I actually loved this soup.
