Potato Leek Soup (slowcooker recipe)

  • 4 cups yukon gold potatoes, diced
  • 3 to 4 cups thinly sliced leeks (3 or 4 leeks)
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 to 6 slices bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
combine all ingredients and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. add cream, if used, in the last 30 minutes. taste and adjust seasonings. mash with a potato masher to thicken, or puree for a smooth consistency, adding additional cream or broth if necessary.

quick note: it is so amazingly yummy with some sourdough bread and brie on the side.(can't forget the cheese!)
