Broccoli and cheddar is a classic soup, but we at the Home Chef kitchen love nothing more than tweaking the classics. This soup contains both turkey and bacon, two forms of protein, and crunchy crackers and sour cream sitting on top, as well as fresh broccoli and gooey cheese. This may be a new classic.
