This great tasting belly warming soup is always and hit and it gets gobbled up in no time.

Place the bacon in a Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot and bring to medium-high heat; cook until crispy.
Remove the bacon pieces and set aside.
Add the onions to the bacon grease and cook until translucent, add the potatoes, hot pepper flakes and dried thyme.
Stir in the wine and cook until wine is reduced.
Stir in the cooked bacon along with the remaining ingredients, except for the cream.
Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.

Remove bay leaves and stir in the cream, warm through and ladle into bowls.
