Serves: 8 

  • 50g (3-4 tablespoons) of butter
  • 1 medium or large onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 4 sticks of celery (chopped)
  • 3 sticks of leek (chopped)
  • 6-8 thick slices of bacon (largish pieces)
  • Potatoes (enough to be covered by the stock)
  • 1 L Chicken stock
  • 500 mL milk (or single cream)

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Melt the butter;
  2. Cook bacon and set it aside;
  3. Sweat the onion, garlic, celery and leek until well cooked;
  4. Add potatoes, cover with stock and bring to a boil until potatoes are coming apart;
  5. Add milk little by little and blend, checking the consistency as you go along (more milk if you want it thinner, less if you want it thicker) - you may leave some bigger chunks of potatoes if you want;
  6. Add the bacon that was set aside, salt and black pepper to taste, I prefer not to add any salt as the bacon and stock take care of that, but plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
