Potato, Leek & Bacon Soup

It’s definitely soup weather these days! When the warmer early fall starts to fade and the cool late fall days come along, it’s time for some easy soup recipes 🙂 This one was invented in my own kitchen this morning, using what we had on hand and it was simply delicious!

Potato, Leek & Bacon Soup

1 large leek, chopped
8 strips bacon, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
6 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
salt & pepper
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
6 cups milk

Saute the chopped leek, bacon, celery and potatoes until starting to brown on edges. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a large stock pot. Add parsley and milk and simmer on medium heat stirring on occasion for about an hour. Puree with a hand blender, and serve!
