Inspired by the Leaky Cauldron, one of Harry’s frequent Diagon Alley haunts, this hearty take on classic leek soup warms me right down to my soul. The bacon, potatoes, and leeks all come together to make the ultimate comfort food, but the bun bowls are what really set this dish apart. Since rolls and soup are featured so often as sides, mini bread bowls seemed like the perfect way to marry two sides together. Of course, you can use any kind of bread you want. I chose pretzel bread because it’s hearty and resembles cauldrons (pumpernickel is great too!). Just be sure the variety you choose has a hard outer crust (to prevent the soup from soaking through). Bon appetit!For more great recipes like this one, visit Alison's Wonderland Recipes.

Prep: 21 minutes; Cook: 40 minutesA simple blend of caramelized leeks topped with a broth-soaked slice of cheese toast really hit the spot at our taste testing.

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006 from An Exaltation Of Soups....This Tranitional Welsh leek broth is a wonderful way to start a feast on March 1, St. Tavy's day. It is guaranteed to strengthen the heart cords of anyone with Welsh blood, but watch out for the celebration: in Wales, to be "full of loudmouth soup" is to be "drunk as a lord."
