I made this a couple of months ago and it go rave reviews.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup

"Really easy, satisfying soup. Can be prepared in less than an hour. Serve hot and garnish with grated cheese."
Original recipe yield: 6 servings.
Prep Time:
20 Minutes
Cook Time:
40 Minutes
Ready In:
1 Hour
6 (change)
8 potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 cups chicken broth
1 pound bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 leeks, sliced
1 cup heavy cream
In a large saucepan or stockpot, bring potatoes and chicken broth to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving 3 tablespoons of grease and set aside. Sautee the leeks in the frying pan with the reserved bacon grease 8 to 10 minutes.
When the potatoes are tender, stir in the fried leeks, heavy cream and bacon. Stir to blend and remove from heat. Serve hot.

As with most recipes I tend to make changes. I added fresh ground black pepper to taste and a couple of cloves of minced garlic.
