  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 Tbl butter
  • 1 large leek, white only, cleaned and chopped

Cook bacon until crisp , crumble and set aside. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the leeks and pepper and cook over low heat until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the chicken stock, potato and all purpose seasoning and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer partially covered 10-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add the cream and simmer over low heat another 10 minutes.

Remove 1/4 of the leeks and potatoes and puree the rest either with a stick mixer in the pan or in batches in a blender/food processor. Return mixture to pan along with the removed vegetables and allow everything to warm.

Serve in bowls and garnish with the bacon and parsley.

Simple and heart-warming!
