Turkey Bacon Soup

I got this little magazine of all soup recipes by Company's Coming, and they all look so delicious. I made the Turkey Bacon Soup recipe first and it was amazing! Very comfort food like. It was supposed to be more like a soup, however mine turned out more like a stew and it was still delicious. Very easy to make, and taste great leftover. Picture doesn't do it justice. Next recipe from the soup magazine I want to try is spicy sweet potato!!

5 slices bacon, diced
1/2 lb lean ground turkey
2 1/2 cups sliced fresh white mushrooms (I diced mine fine)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
5 cups turkey or chicken stock
3 cups chopped, unpeeled red potatoes
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper (I am a pepper lover and add a lot more)
1/2 cup frozen kernel corn
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp dijon mustard
3/4 cup skim evaporated milk

1.) Cook bacon until crisp, drain on paper towel and set aside to cool. Heat 1 tbsp. of bacon drippings in saucepan on medium and add turkey. Cook turkey until no longer pink.
2.) Add next 5 ingredients, stir. Cook for about 5 minutes stirring often, until vegetables are softened. (after this step I transferred everything to a pot but I doubled the recipe)
3.) Add next 5 ingredients. Stir. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium low, simmer covered for 15 to 20 min, stirring occasionally until potato tender.
4.) Add corn and bacon, stir.
5.) Combine mustard and flour in small bowl. Stir in evaporated milk until smooth. Slowly stir into soup. Heat and stir on medium heat for about 5 min or until boiling and slightly thickened. Makes about 9 cups.
