Fantastic recipe - the closest I've come to the amazing soup I remember from the Coffee House and Tea Room in St. Andrews, Scotland, where I often had this soup as my lunch. Did as the suggestion offered, and added the crumbled bacon, also sauteeing my leeks and added fresh mushrooms in the bacon leavings - but making sure the leeks were still a bit crisp. Boiled the potatoes, leeks, and mushrooms in the broth for about twenty-five minutes (with the bacon crumbles) and then after adding the milk and portioning out the soup, sprinkled a bit of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese and some asiago over top. Soup needs very little seasoning (seasoned the leeks and mushrooms with a bit of garlic, cumin, and pepper) and is tasty and filling.
