In this lentil soup with home smoked bacon recipe, we are using French lentil, lentils du Puy. The rest of the ingredients are similar to the classic French lentil soup recipes, including the bacon we smoked ourselves.

For the bacon, instead of adding it directly to the batch, we gave it a slight twist. The smoked bacon was cut into a thick slice, pan crisped and used as the garnish. We also used our home made smoked pork stock to give this delicious lentil smoked bacon soup recipe mouthwatering aroma as well as the exceptional smoky flavors. The most likely place you can find this dish is in a home kitchen, or at Hazardous Kitchen.
