Took a quick run to the West Racine Farmer's Market today. Cool weather is coming tomorrow and I felt that some wonderful home made soup would be just perfect. This recipe for leek and potato soup is one of my family's favorites and I can't wait to make this for dinner!
Potato Leek Soup
12 potatoes peeled and cut into small pieces
5 cups of chicken broth
1/2 pound of bacon
4 leeks thinly sliced
1 cup of half and half
Boil potatoes in chicken broth until tender. At the same time fry the bacon until crisp. Drain bacon, reserving 3 tablespoons of drippings. Crumble the bacon and set to the side. Saute the sliced leeks in reserved bacon drippings until tender. Add leeks, bacon and half and half to the potatoes and chicken broth, heat through and serve.
