  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, fresh grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth, fresh or canned, heated to a simmer
  • 1/2 cup instant-blending flour
  • 3 cups iceberg lettuce, julienne
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup green onions, diced
  • 5 slices bacon, diced small, plus crisp, crumbed bacon for garnish


In a 3-quart pot, cook the bacon over medium heat till lightly browned. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until wilted. Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the lettuce and saute for 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour into the pot, then stir it in until well blended. Remove the pot from the heat and add the hot chicken broth, tomatoes, nutmeg and pepper. Heat the soup to boiling, stirring constantly, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Add the cream and mix well. Mix together the mayonnaise and sour cream.


Serve each portion of soup with a dollop of mayonnaise mixture topped with crumbled bacon.
