Ingredients

Croutons

  • 3
    cups cubed (1-inch) French bread
  • 1/4
    cup butter, melted
  • 1
    tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2
    teaspoon finely chopped garlic

Soup

  • 6
    slices bacon, chopped
  • 1
    large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1
    medium carrot, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2
    teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 3
    cups Progresso™ unsalted chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 8
    oz prepared cheese product, cut into cubes (from 1-lb loaf)
  • 1
    lb smoked turkey breast, coarsely chopped (3 cups)
  • 1
    medium tomato, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2
    cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • Chopped avocado, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, mix Crouton ingredients until bread is well coated. Spread in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crispy. Set aside.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 5-quart Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel-lined plate, leaving bacon drippings in Dutch oven; set cooked bacon aside.
  • 3
    Return Dutch oven to stove; reduce heat to medium. Add onion, carrot and garlic to bacon drippings. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened. Stir in chicken broth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slowly stir in cheese, stirring constantly with whisk, until cheese is melted. Stir in turkey. Add tomato, spinach and salt; cook 3 to 5 minutes longer or until heated through and spinach is wilted.
  • 4
    Serve soup topped with croutons, bacon and chopped avocado.

  • Reheat cream or cheese soups slowly. Boiling can case the soup to separate and curdle.
  • Ask for thick slices of turkey breast at the deli, then chop them at home. Or use leftover turkey breast that you have on hand.
