I love this easy-to-make soup. I didn't use the bread/cheese/bacon topping and didn't miss it, although I think it would taste good. This is one of the easiest soups I have ever made.
Collard Green & Black-Eyed Pea Soup
From EatingWell: January/February 2008
Antioxidant-rich collard greens and fiber-packed black-eyed peas have a starring role in this nutritious soup. There's no need for loads of ham or salt pork—just a small amount of bacon gives it a wonderful smoky flavor. You can skip the bacon and substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth for a great vegetarian dish.

We loved this soup but I would highly recommend taking Beano before eating it. The leafy greens and legumes can do a number on your digestive system!
My husband and I love, love this soup. I've made it twice without the bread and didn't miss it. The second time I added chopped boiled chicken tenders and more pepper flakes. OMGosh.. Forgot the bacon and added another cup of Collards. Yummy...It will definitely be one of our regular's.

I made and served this for a New Year's Day soup lunch... It is excellent and was a great hit. I didn't do the bread/cheese on top (time issue), but will try it next time!
