Just a few recipes from Country Living I downloaded and wanted to share.

1. In 5-quart saucepot or Dutch oven over medium heat, fry bacon until
crisp. With slotted spoon, remove bacon to small bowl and reserve. Drain
and discard all but 1 T bacon fat from pot.

2. Add onions and garlic and saute 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Return bacon to pot and add broth, wine, bay leaf, and salt; heat to
boiling. Reduce heat to low, cover soup mixture, and simmer 30 minutes.

3. Just before serving, top each slice of bread with 1 T Parmesan cheese;
toast in toaster oven or under broiler until cheese melts. Strain soup into
serving bowls, then top each bowl with a slice of the bread. Garnish with
parsley and serve.
