The Soup Project: Potato-Leek Soup


Cooler weather means getting out the soup pot.  This is a simple soup that is very tasty; I usually have a salad with it.

Potato-Leek Soup
(Crock Pot) 

4 cups diced potatoes
3 cups thinly sliced leeks
2 cans chicken broth
8-10 slices bacon cut in ½ inch pieces, cooked and drained
1 cup evaporated milk
salt & pepper to taste
shredded cheese (Optional)

Combine first 4 ingredients in Crock Pot and cook on low for 8- 10 hours. Add evaporated milk and adjust seasonings during last 30 minutes cooking. Puree about 2/3 and add back into the remaining soup stir.  Top with cheese if desired

So easy to do, so good. It's turned a little cooler here, so I might try this recipe out.
