As above I had lost my traditional recipe that I had been given. Everyone loved this the bacon really adds to the flavour. Definately make again and again

Fabulous! I had mislaid my usual recipie for Leek & Potato Soup so decided to give this one a go & I am so glad I did. The addition of the bacon gives it such a lovely more-ish flavour. It went down a treat with the whole family - even with my 3 year old who is such a fussy eater! Even got requests for more the next day.
Will most definately be making it again.
