Favorite Family Recipes: Potato Leek Soup with Bacon from Sugar Dish Me

No matter what the season, soup is delicious and comforting. In the fall and winter, soup takes on a whole new role in most menu plans. Soup can be a side to a fresh delicious salad or a main dish alongside a loaf of crunchy whole wheat bread.

Soup is the perfect gift to take to a new mom, because most soups can be frozen in individual portions for lunches during maternity leave or quick weeknight dinners once she has gone back to work. A hearty, filling favorite is the Potato Leek Soup with Bacon from at Sugar Dish Me. 

While some soups are tedious for busy home cooks, this soup is anything but. You can prepare and cook it in less than an hour and the result is thick, creamy, comforting and satisfying.  Though some potato soups fall into the “bland” category, this one is packed with flavor from fresh leeks and smoky bacon. Garnish with green onions and a little bit of cheese for an extra punch of flavor.
