  1. 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.
  2. When the potatoes are tender, stir in the fried leeks, heavy cream and bacon. Stir to blend and remove from heat. Serve hot.

I made a few changes, served with homemade bread and my husband declared it to be "the best thing he ever ate." I pureed the potatoes with my hand blender, used 1/2 the bacon called for, added 2...

This recipe came out very bland and tasteless. I used whole milk instead of cream, but otherwise followed the recipe. Won't make this again!

I also looked at this recipe and thought.. "5 ingredients? No kidding!" But i'll be damned if this isn't the best Potato and Leek soup i've ever had! It was so simple and easy to make and took ...

A really excellent combination of tastes, with no additional seasonings needed. I modified the recipe somewhat by mixing in one-third of the sauteed leeks with the cooked potatoes, then blendin...

A very delicous soup. Easy to follow instructions. It felt sinful to eat because of it's high fat content. A lower fat alternative I have tried to the bacon is smoked ham and milk instead of h...

Seriously good soup!! I've made it lots of different ways and it always turns out perfect. I've substituted onions for leeks and ham for the bacon. I always use milk to make it more healthy. ...

Delicious with or without the cream (for dieters)! Even better if you throw everything but the cream in right away to boil into the soup! Mash it all before you add the cream for a thick smoot...

This recipe was good, but the directions were vague. I did not know what kind of potato to use, so I used large russett potatoes. I only needed 4. Also, the leeks were huge. I only needed on...

Wow! I was at the store and noticed the fresh leeks and bought them on a whim, then came home and looked up a recipe - i'm so glad I picked this one! I am literally eating the soup as we speak a...

What a delicious soup. I used low sodium chicken broth, since I figured the bacon would lend enough salt to the recipe. I used half fat cream, and I think I could have easily used milk instead...
