Asiago Bisque

I am an asiago cheese fan through and through. Asiago bagels are my absolute favorite and I will try one at every bagel shop I walk in. They are still on my food to make bucket list as we speak so hopefully one day I'll get around to actually making them.
Anyway, I am also a huge fan of cheesy soups so I knew this one would be an absolute hit. I don't think there is anything much better than a creamy, cheesy, veggie soup with some good dipping bread.
This bisque was so easy to throw together and has a classier flavor that is sure to wow your family.
And don't for get some good bread to slop up all that cheesy goodness. Oh and the bacon doesn't hurt either. ;)
